I am posting this because of the up coming holidays, and we all buy batteries!
I needed a large amount of batteries, so instead of going to WallyWorld or something like I decided to look online.
Well, I found a bunch of good sites, but I also found a lot of good information,
This for your household batteries, From AAA to the square 9 volt
1) Expiration dates: if the package you pick up says they are good until 2016, you have fresh ones.
Batteries are made now with a 10 year shelf life. So if you pick up some that say they are good until 2014, they are already
4 years old.
2) If you are buying a large amount of batteries, it is my suggestion to go online and find them there. Example:
I bought 123A for $2.50 a piece, in the stores they will run $4 to $6.
Hope this makes your holiday a little better and less expensive.
