Here’s something interesting, it seems that Energizer is screwing customers who purchase rechargeable D batteries. Specifically, the Energizer E2 D batteries. People have noticed that these batteries seem weaker, and actually physically lighter than comparable batteries. Well upon closer inspection, it is found that they are rated at 2500mAh each, the same as a standard AA battery. An average single-use D battery is rated at around 12,000mAh. Guess what that means?
That’s right, if you tear open one of these batteries (I don’t usually recommend opening batteries, as it’s just a bad idea) you’ll find a something that resembles a AA battery inside a plastic case. Granted, the shape is a bit different, but the capacity is exactly the same. So for $25 you are essentially getting the same thing as a $6 pair of AA’s and a pair of cheap (we’re talking a couple bucks each) AA-to-D converters. For shame Energizer, for shame!
