awesome single review on that site... i'd say stay away. there's a better deal for 20 AA Rayovac batteries for just over a dollar. I'd go for 2 of those instead.

Can RadioShack really be selling something that terrible? (according to the review on the site)

I was gonna grab these for garage LED flashlights and Xbox controllers. Anyone used this "brand" before? UPG is a big name company.

Generic batteries marked "Heavy Duty" last for far shorter time than branded alkaline ones. They're also much lighter in weight, and notorious for their quality. That review might have been exaggerated, but the only generic batteries I buy now are strictly alkaline ones.
I'd stay away from these in the future.

In stock again, just bought some. I will review and let everyone know how they are. The one person that left a bad review was probably just a moron. If it involves electricity, people generally won't understand it.

@akshat7: Ditto that- some electronic gadgets won't even work with sub-alkaline batteries. There are better deals out there.

@akshat7: another ditto to that. I read a consumer reports (or the like) review years ago and "heavy duty" batteries have a fraction of the life of alkaline and are a bad investment.

These are 70's technology or older.

I'd suggest heading down to your nearest Gamestop and getting the rechargable battery packs. I get used ones that were sold to them, and get them for about $10 including the charging cable. They typically last me about a year or so, and can go about 10 hours before having to charge them in (and yes, you can charge them while using them).

The money wasted on AA batteries for your controller each year is crazy compared to the small amount that you'll drop on the battery pack.

BJs has a 4 pack of BJs brand alkaline batteries for about the same price right now ($7.99 with a $2 instant rebate - normally $9.99). If you're in need of batteries and have a membership, it might be worthwhile.

@birdistasty:
Forgive me if I don't quite get it....but a 4-pack of batteries for $7.99 doesn't sound like a great deal to me. What am I missing?!

@amaydaisy: Eep. I dropped an eight. It's a 48 pack. Sorry bout that!

Bought some heavy duty batteries on a different DOD, and heavy duty batteries last maybe a day in my xbox controller. Much better to use alkaline IMO.

@roxtarryan: I might do that, thank you for the post.
