Slightly better deal, also at Amazon: 24 for $10.12 http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00009V2QX/ref=ord_cart_shr?ie=UTF8&m=A28EAMWBIO5DIC

Shipping for this and the original deal is free with a total merchandise purchase of $25 or more (Amazon's usual "free shipping" offer.

Is there any difference between the two types of Duracell, and if so what are they?

I'm not sure about every where, but my Kroger's in Louisville, KY has had Energizer Batteries AA/AAA in 20 or 24 packs (Can't remember for $6, and the package has a $3 coupon on it. I bought like 4 packs of AA, and 2 AAA's. It's been going on for atleast 3 weeks. That's a killer deal! I would assume if one Kroger did it they all would, but needless to say I'm set for batteries for awhile, and enough for some of the kids toys they'll be getting for Christmas.

The "Procell" batteries seem to get mixed reviews based on how old the batteries seem to be. One reviewer said they were within 10-20% of the regular Duaracell. I think the original link is a better deal: do the subscribe and save, set it to 6 month interval and the price drops to $8.50. That's a deal!

Yes, there is a difference in the type of batteries, different types are made for different power drains based the devices your will be using them with. This site may help you with some of your questions-

PROCELLs are junk. They have no life to them, they're made for disposable cameras and the like where you'll never see the end of the batteries life before the product they're in becomes useless. There's a reason why they're $15 for a pack of 24 when NOT on sale. Buy Copper-Tops if you actually own something that lasts longer than the battery. Better yet, buy some NiMH and a charger, I'm amazed people still buy disposables.

In for 1. I agree the procells suck and aren't worth the price according to the first comment.

Great deal. I was just talking about how I needed to stock up on batteries for all my remotes and controllers. Got some doubles and triples.

Did you know that there are 6 (six) 1.5 volt batteries ( AAAA or 4A) inside a 9 volt battery? AAAA batteries are expensive, like $3 to $4 for two. The squarish 9 volt (with snap contacts) are cheap, like $2-$3 each. You may have to tweak the contacts a bit, but I got 'em to work in my AR noise cancelling earbuds.

And you're disposing of all these dead batteries at a proper recycling center, right? These things leach heavy metals into the soil that slowly make us all dumber over time. (insert joke here).

NIMH is the way to go Wooters! The last time we took old batteries to the recycling center (before we got the rechargeables in our house) we had over 7 pounds of them.

@smudge: I set up bins at work to collect used batteries to recycle. On a whim, I tested a few with a battery tester. Usually about one-third of the batteries turn out "good" or better. Another one-third test as low. The rest are dead. I've "recycled" the good ones for any use of a battery and some of the "low" ones for use in remotes, kids toys, etc. I only purchase rechargeable batteries for my electronic gizmos though. Rechargeable NIMH batteries with a charger make great stocking stuffers.

You could have put how long this battery lasts. >=^1
