The discharge curves are fairly standard alkaline, but the battery is not very good around 0.5A

Good to know HKJ! Just curious if you have ever used or reviewed the meijer brand alkaline batteries AA or AAA? They call them “POWERCELL”. They come in the typical blister pack (i bought the big combo pack of 36 AA and 12 AAA).
I cant find any info about them online.

Bought them mainly for power outages remotes etc…

Also Harbor Freight (crap products keep your receipt!) Lol. Their thunderbolt AAA have lasted longer than i expected, but not sure what or if they have any decent shelf life.

I have lots of gadgets that use both AAA and AA. Not flashlights. Remotes, smoke detectors, and them free HF little magnetic work lights etc…

Anyone ever use these meijer brand POWERCELL?

I like flashlights!!
