I am looking for some additional rechargeable AA batteries to feed the hungry kids toys, and found the 16-pack 2000mAh Amazon Basics AA batteries to have 20% off coupon for the first shipment with subscribe and save. Coupled with 5% off on S&S, the price came down to $20.62, or $1.29 a piece. This is close to the lowest price according to CCC.

I have ordered these batteries before. Overall very satisfied. They do not have the highest mAh ratings, but for kids toys, the cost per battery is more important than the charge per battery--at least this is how I feel.

Remember to cancel S&S after the first shipment, if you do not want new ones on a regular basis.

Also 12 pack 800 mAh AAA, with 20% off first order with S&S, comes to $10.12 before tax.

I appreciate all the comments, and have added the price in the title.

Personally, I have had about 50 of these batteries from previous purchases, and they work great for me. Never had an issue. Of course, I care more about being green and replacing all toy batteries with rechargeable, rather than whether one brand of battery can hold 5% more charges after a year. To me, price per battery matters more as long as the battery is of good quality.

Additionally, I have seen a very popular review about Japanese vs Chinese made battery on youtube, which famously claimed that Japanese made batteries are almost always better. This is probably one of the reasons behind all the concerns about country of origin. However, I feel that there are substantial non-scientific elements in these reviews. For one, some reviews based their conclusions primarily on the "claimed" mAh ratings by the manufacturer. A brand with 95% "real" mAh of the claimed mAh was rated better than another brand with 85% of that number. But what really matters to me is the "real" mAh per dollar cost. The fact that many Chinese brands are of lower price than Japanese brands was not considered in the review. Second, I have not seen a single review that has measured the same brand of batteries with enough repetition to show error bars and statistical significance. In the scientific world, comparing data without error bars and statistical evaluation is almost meaningless.

I do not want to start a debate about country of origin and battery quality--just my few cents.
From another thread I read the problem with amazon batteries is you either get ones made in China that are junk, or ones made in Japan which are great.

It seems to be a smarter move to get batteries through IKEA as they are always made in Japan.
Amazon should put "Country of Origin" under Product information.

Are you sure they are good for door locks? My August locks complain they are low on batteries too soon and I finally read where it said not to use rechargeable batteries...

What would be a good charger for these? Can these be used for Xbox game controllers or tv remotes?

$21.99 after 20% coupon. Looks like the starting price changed.
