Notes and links

How is the test done and how to read the charts
Compare to other AA/AAA batteries: Alkaline/NiMH/Lithium

These are the worst batteries I have ever seen!

both dont look good.

Thanks for the test HKJ!

Wow that is horrific. At first I thought those numbers had the decimal in the wrong place!
