The CBC Marketplace performed a test on double-A disposable batteries to see which ones offer the best bang for your buck. The investigation used batteries bought at two leading dollar stores and some of the lower costing batteries lasting almost as long as brand names. The test also made it clear that not all batteries are created equally and some did not perform well.
Researchers from Ontario Tech University in Oshawa, Ontario tested 240 double-A disposable batteries from six brands. The brands involved were Energizer, Duracell, Canadian Tire’s Noma, Walmart’s Great Value, E-Circuit from Dollar Tree, and Panasonic batteries from Dollarama and Dollar Tree. During a test that simulated different energy drain levels, Duracell and Energizer lasted the longest.
The E-Circuit alkaline which is imported and sold at Dollar Tree lasted nearly as long as the more well-known brands and only cost $1.25 for a pack of four. During the simulations they used low, medium and high drain scenarios to simulate real life.
