Duracell Plus MN1604
Advantages: Lasts loads longer than cheaper batteries from the supermarket
These square shaped batteries are usually called 9 volt batteries, they can be used for all sorts of devices but the main thing I use them for is my clock radio.... and we also get through shedloads of them on my sister's toys but that's another story!
At one time I used to buy the cheapo supermarket own brand 9 volt batteries but eventually I realised they weren't lasting as long as they should so one day (when I was rich!) I bought a pack of Duracell Plus MD1604.... or 9 volters to be a bit more easy!
They are LOADS more expensive to buy but I swear I can see a massive difference in the amount of these square batteries I am having to buy. A wicked example is my clock radio, I run it off the battery because I've already well overloaded the plug sockets in my bedroom. Because I also use it as a radio during the day I realised it was draining the cheap batteries much too fast and in the long run it was costing me a fortune.
Now though I've had this Duracell battery in for about 3 months and it's not showing any signs of running out, the supermarket batteries would have definately needed replacing at least a month ago so even though these are a bit more expensive in the long run it will work out to be a cheaper way of powering the clock radio.
I know clocks aren't exactly the most heavy duty product available so I'll give you a better example of just how BRILLIANT these batteries are. My 3 year old sister has got this bear that walks and talks and everything, it's remote control and takes 2 x 9 volt batteries in the back of the bear to make it work. The supermarket batteries were lasting about an hour in it and my sister was getting more and more annoyed at this gorgeous bear not working properly, it ended up in the cupboard because we just couldn't keep replacing the batteries at such a rate.
When I put 2 of these Duracell Plus 9 volters in though it powered up straight away and the batteries only died YESTERDAY, that's 6 weeks later than a supermarket brand battery would last for!
I think these are brilliant batteries, they keep their charge just about forever and even though they are quite pricey they work perfect and aren't going to leave you in the lurch by running out at a bad time.
AND you can stick your tongue on the 2 metal prongs and get a bit of an electrocution buzz running through your mouth..... bonus!!!
