    4.0 out of 5 stars Test Results: Of 8, these are 3rd for value and have very good capacity, March 26, 2017

    Verified Purchase(What's this?)
    UPDATE 5/19/17: As always, check prices before you buy. As of today, these are currently 31% more expensive per cell than the ACDelco 48 pack purchased as an add-on item, making these nearly identical in cost to AmazonBasics, putting them in third place for value.. My current recommendation is to check the price/cell for AmazonBasics, ACDelco, and Polaroid (which all have good capacity) when you need batteries and buy whatever's cheapest.

    UPDATE: It appears that Amazon has deleted all of the graphs and data that were attached to my reviews as images. Sorry to you folks who are interested in that sort of thing, but I'm done complaining to them about this. Since there's no data, I guess you're just stuck with 'trust me, these are a close #2 in value with better packaging than the #1 value option."

    Well, well, well, what's this we have here? Another iconic American name brand slapped on a contract-manufactured Chinese battery? OMG TESTING TIME (*sigh*, my life's not actually that boring, I just get excited about strange things). First off, these aren't really even 'Polaroid', they're 'Assortit' batteries with a licensed Polaroid logo on them ... but we don't really care about any of the branding shenanigans ... because science, right? If they deliver the goods, we buy them, if they don't ... the sit on the shelf. Hurray us ... we're well-informed consumers.

    I've tested a few batteries on Amazon -- so far, my roundup includes AmazonBasics, two types of Duracell, ACDelco, Rayovac, Energizer, Maxell, and now Polaroid. I've ramped down my battery reviewing lately because Amazon has been taking down my legit (read: non-paid) reviews because they don't like my 'value' chart ... but the 100 pack of these came in at a price where they had a chance to dethrone ACDelco, so I had to test them (and argue with Amazon about the fitness of my review to grace their website).

    Polaroid/Assortit aaa's are in the middle of the 'good' pack in terms of capacity -- although they are bested by AmazonBasics and ACDelco in mid-drain devices, they're within 5% of the top battery in the high and low drain tests. Overall, I don't think that you will be disappointed with the capacity of these. See the graph and table attached in the images for the raw data.

    More importantly, these stake a solid claim to the #2 spot for value, besting AmazonBasics and Maxell to come within striking distance to overtake the value-champ, ACDelco. These come in WAY better packaging than the ACDelco batteries (individually wrapped sets of 4 in a nice cardboard box, vs a horrible blister pack for the ACDelco), so if packaging matters to you these are an easy win.

    In the images I have attached two graphs and a table summarizing my test results for the 8 types I've tested. The graphs show value and absolute capacity, respectively, and the table contains my raw data. If you'd like to know more about how I test & what some example runtimes in various use cases look like for these batteries ... that's coming next.

    My standard test procedure is to take 3 fresh batteries sourced from Amazon, all starting at approx. 75 degrees Fahrenheit, and discharge them in my Opus BT-C2000 battery analyzer at rates of 100 ma, 200 ma, and 400 ma (discharge rate affects usable capacity). I executed this procedure twice for these batteries and averaged the results. At each capacity the average discharge rate was:

    Disch Rt | Capacity | Runtime | Sample use case
    100 mA | 964 mAh | 9.6 hrs | Low-power LED flashlight
    200 mA | 812 mAh | 4.1 hrs | Electronic toy / medium LED flashlight
    400 mA | 640 mAh | 1.7 hrs | Motorized toy / bright LED flashlight

    These batteries didn't win any of the tests, but there were no major disappointments either. Overall they nearly matched the top performers in the high and low drain tests.

    If you'd like to compare these Polaroid/Assortit batteries to the others that I've tested, I've linked the other products at the end of this review and also attached a summary graph and table in the images. To see my full reviews of the other products, go to the product review page and searching 'mah' under 'all reviews' (unfortunately Amazon doesn't allow direct linking to other reviews).

    I have also tested the following batteries:

    AmazonBasics AAA Performance Alkaline Batteries
    Duracell Procell AAA Batteries... Read more

    5.0 out of 5 stars "A-", March 28, 2017

    I find these to be every bit as good as the amazon basics, which i have bought and traditional batteries.

    The price point is fantastic, and they make like every size of battery imaginable.

    I have used the "AAA" size in 2 different flashlights and have not suffered any loss of light output, nor any less runtime than other batteries, nor have i experienced any leakage.

    I have run the "AA" batteries in a tabletop radio that has braille buttons on it for my aunt jan who is blind. They last along time in the radio!

    I have also used these in a size "C" in a brinks brand outdoor motion light.

    These have worked well in a variety of applications, and yes i paid my own money for these batteries.

    These "AA" batteries i recieved also we marked good thru 2023 as seen in the photos... 7 years.... and i also like that they came shrink wrapped in 5 rows of four batteries...

    5.0 out of 5 stars box marked 2023., February 16, 2017

    These are installed in ever remote I use.
    The box suggests best by 2023.
    I will be using these in all the battery powered clocks we use at home and work.
    That alone would take a box.....or two.
    We've had real good luck from our shipment, AA, & AAA both seem to be no slouch.
    The lowest reading of any tested cell was 1.61.
    We're happy and hope you get the same mileage.
