Eveready Ultimate Lithium.

I don’t know how much equipment I’ve lost to alkalines, non do I wanna remember.
I don’t get batteries out until they become weak. My bad. But I will continue.
Just last week I lost a remote control boat and a car.

Then I get the brilliant idea of buying Eveready Lithium Iron.
100 each, good price. Reputable dealer.

Today, I go to the scale in the bathroom and it’s dead.
Takes 4 AAA. Which I switched to “The Ultimate” for peace of mind.
I could not believe it, however, there were two liking.

Nor only did I switched perfectly working batteries in the scale.
But all around the house.

I have 21 AA and 13 AAA left of the Ultimate.
Where do I go from here?.

Cheers.

Whut?

For a clock/thermometer that takes 2 AAAs for the guts and 1 AAA for the backlight, I stuck a Shoshine LFP AAA + dummy cell in the former, and whateverloop for the latter.

One of mum’s lights that looks like a worklight (fake plastic “grate” that snaps across the LEDs, etc.) takes 3 AAs, springs destroyed by leaking, so I stuck an EBL Li cell in there and a wire jumping the bad springs.

Just gotta do what you gotta do.

Hmm. Never an issue with them for me. I put them in everything that I know might sit for weeks/ months without use just to have the peace of mind they aren’t bleeding all over the insides of my equipment. Yes they are expensive comparatively speaking, but I have yet to have a problem with them holding SOC providing they aren’t sitting in something with parasitic drain.

I went to EverReady Lithium in most items taking AA and AAA. They last a bit longer, good shelf life and don’t leak.

I stock up on Eveready lithium primary AAs and AAAs for the earthquake cache whenever I come across a good price.
As they get close to their expiration date I pull them and use them up.

Pointers welcome to good places to buy them, or to sales, anytime.

These are the best primary batteries period. Never leak and last forever.

Never had any issues at all with Eveready lithium batteries. Did you check the date on the batteries? Being a bathroom scale I’m wondering if moisture might have been an issue. Either way, most likely a fluke occurrence, nothing to get worried about.

They last for like 15 years. I doubt they were close to expiration.

Best non rechargeable battery. They last 5 years in thermostats.
