Default duracell AA and AAA batteries

how many use AA and/ or AAA batteries? groupon has 100 Duracell copper top for $32. I use AA in all my game cameras. I usually spend $15 on 24 AA batteries. Figured Id check em out. ive wasted $32 on a lot less!

You can also check out your local Radio Shack since they're going out of business. Bought 72 batteries for 16.00

Thanks for the heads up. Between trail cams and Mojo's that sounds like about a season's worth for $32!

That is a good deal. I went with Lithium AA batteries last year and they lasted about eight months.

Can you check the shelf life date before getting them?

I have a set in my two cameras that have lasted almost a year.

Edit: they also have Energizer 50 packs for 18.99$

Pretty good for copper tops, i usually get the 60 pack of rayovac AAs at home depot. It's less than 20 bucks I don't remember exactly but they have lasted just as long in my trail cameras as the Duracell it seems

That's a good price.

I buy Coppertops at Sam's. 19.99 for a 48 pack. Right now if you buy 2 48 packs they knock $5 off the total so that's $34.98 for 96 batteries.

My wife had some unused Groupon bucks so I got the 100 AAs for $15!

I am using the Westinghouse batteries that Groupon has available for $22 per 96. So far so good. The best deals were the Utilitec brand that you used to be able to get at Lowe's in a box of 100 for about $20. Those have not been available in my local Lowe's for the last year or longer though.
