These generally will last longer than standard Alkalines, but are not worth the price for that application. OTOH, they are ideal for items which will sit around for a long time between uses, or which have very low current drains. I've had these in items for 10+ years and never seen one leak, and they are always ready to go as they have a very, very low self-discharge. They are prefect "emergency" batteries.

They also are advantageous in devices which operate poorly under low-voltage conditions (i.e which don't like 1.2V rechargables, like my Bosch laser distance meter) as they are closer to 1.7 volts when new and have a fairly flat discharge curve.

These seem decent, but I still wish Costco would go back to selling the Eneloops instead.

I gave up on Eneloops... About half of mine have died with easily less than 100 charge cycles on them, plus soooo many things don't like 1.2v vs 1.5v that I've given up on rechargeables.

The other advantage of Energizer Lithium batteries is for devices exposed to cold temperatures, like exterior temperature/humidity sensors. All alkaline batteries drop voltage at freezing point.

Good price per battery on these, main reason to use them is in long unused or low drain stuff like flashlights and remotes. I use eneloops in high use stuff and have alkalines on hand for when disposables make sense, but I'm tired of losing expensive remotes, flashlights, and tools to crappy leaking alkalines. I've even changed over low use c and d cell stuff to these using adapters. Alks are all junk now, it's ridiculous.

I'm surprised that you had so many failures; that's not my experience. Perhaps you got some fakes or duds? Maybe check on Eneloop101.com for more info.
