If it says “carbon” on it, it probably isn’t even an alkaline. That could also explain the abysmal capacity. IIRC, dry cells can leak, too, though.

Smile, you cannot kill them all.

Refurbished, just for the purpose to let the 3rd world enjoy the same minor setback’s we do.

Penanica AAA

Just took it out of its wrapper and it was already leaking at just shy of 1.3V.

Once again, the Chinese are copying their own brands. Nothing new. This is what happens when there is no accountability. Institute a 1 year mandatory jail time see how fast it stops.
