A general warning:   seen (had) batteries from major brands, such as Duracell, leak in devices and even leak sitting in a drawer. Heavy leakage. And five or six years left on the freshness date. For that matter, I've had NiMH batteries unable to hold a charge after just a few cycles: same batch, same device, same charging cycle - some just drop dead.

What did they all have in common? MADE IN CHINA

I simply won't buy them for those applications that require non-rechargeable. It's cheap insurance.
