Test/Review of Amazon basic AAA

Amazon basic AAA

Official specifications:

  • 1.5 Volt Alkaline Batteries
  • 3-year shelf life so you can store for emergencies or use immediately

Amazon has both NiMH and alkaline batteries in their basic series, here I check the alkaline AAA cells.

Like all alkalines the capacity depends on the load. At 1A and 2A the curve is not completely smooth, I wonder if that is related to temperature (The batteries get warm).


The capacity is about the same as other AAA I have tested, but they are a bit weak at very high loads.
