The last time I ordered these (May 2021) I ended up with 5 completely dead batteries out of the 24. From the get-go they wouldn't even register on any chargers, nor show any voltage on a Fluke 117 multimeter.

Fast-forward to today: only a handful of the remaining 19 are still functional. After a couple of slow-drain cycles they tend to die. I primarily used them in my Govee bluetooth thermometer/hygrometers.

Source: I have many years of experience with alkaline, NiMH, NiCad, LiPO, LiFePO, and Li-ion batteries. I attempted to analyze and charge the "dead" AAA batteries in multiple chargers, but none were able to revive them.

Recently bought the AAs. They were able to take a charge with a good charger, but they were DOA. Not a good sign for batteries that are supposed to be precharged.

I bought these recently, they are little thicker than standard AA, making it difficult to use them, For instance I tried to use them in IKEA frother.

I have had similar experiences with the amazon basics rechargables in the past. I have only had one eneloop fail, but almost all my amazon basics ones are dead and I purchased them a couple years after the eneloop

I have about 20 batteries consisting of a mix of eneloop, Tenergy, and Energizer that are at least 5 years old and are still alive and kickin'.

I recently tried EBL rechargeable AAs, but just like the Amazon Basics they didn't last long at all.

bought the aa (24x for $10) a month or so ago and have used 8 of them, they are all fine, pre charged, fit fine for various lanterns/flashlight/toys etc. $10 for 24 for either aa or aaa, i would buy again. time will tell if they are durable or not. but i would not pay $1 per battery considering previous deals and mixed reviews.

My experience with this brand of non rechargeable batteries is not good. They die really fast compared to other name brands.
