Our family had always bought the cheap dollar store batteries, because I thought it was better to pay less...what I have learned though is that I was actually paying more then I thought, because we were going through batteries like crazy in this house.
Duracell has become a regular name in our house now. They last longer and I don't have to buy batteries as often anymore.
One Christmas, when my son was about 5 or 6, we had him write out his list for Santa. On the top of the list, believe it or not, was batteries!! It was the cheapest Christmas gift ever asked for! That is because we used to have a rule that when the batteries died the toy was done...he knew that if he had his own stash of batteries, he would be able to play with his toys longer;-) (I am THAT mom!!)
In reality, we always replaced the batteries. That year, we bought him a whole pile of batteries and he was so happy when he opened them in the morning...
These are the batteries that will be making an appearance this year in our house:
Introducing Duracell Quantum, the world’s most advanced alkaline battery. With its revolutionary Hi-Density Core™ and proprietary PowerCheck™ power indicator, Duracell Quantum has been engineered to deliver the performance consumers demand.
