I was curious and tempted by these, but after a little digging I'm hesitant:


The competition
EBL's AA batteries lasted for only 24 hours in our flameless-candle testing compared with our AA picks, all of which kept a flameless candle running for five days and nights—not quite the miracle of Hanukkah but still good for batteries. And, even after much tinkering, the remote-control car we tried to power with a set of EBL AAs never turned on. Lots of user reviewers also report the batteries not working in certain devices, dying quickly, or draining when stored overnight. Despite the fact that the EBL AAs achieved an average capacity of 2,413 mAh in our testing, and 2,330 mAh after 50 cycles, we don't feel comfortable recommending them given these concerns.

Although EBL's AAA batteries did well in our tests—they actually outperformed our picks in every test and are the least expensive at the time of this writing—we found a pattern of negative user reviews just like the EBL AAs. So, similarly, we decided not to recommend them.
