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.

Yes, it’s likely zinc-carbon, and they’re guaranteed to leak after their short life.

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

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.
