Which batteries last longest?

Which batteries last longest? Costco!

The winner's no surprise but coming in a close second is Kirkland, Costco's house brand.

FunFact: "Kirkland batteries... are actually made by Duracell. Costco's CEO, Craig Jelinek, revealed that little-known secret in an interview."

Who knew?

One hopes Panasonic's upcoming Tesla batteries are a whole different kettle of ions.

Agreed.

Eneloops FTW all day, every day.

I have at least 300 around the house. Some are over 15 years old.

And Duracells are made by ....?
For a while, most of the good ones were made by Sanyo.
Now Panasonic owns Sanyo.
My Sanyo/Panasonic Eneloops outlast any of these by a factor of 100, at least,
because they are rechargeable.

Good to know as we have a Costco membership.

King Arthur makes Wegmans flours, and many other Wegmans products come from the same facility as more expensive products. Supposedly Birdseye bags come off the line and Wegmans bags go on.

Generic has been replaced by store brands.
