We have already tested more than 10 various 1.5V AA-size primary batteries (single use non-rechargeable models) from various brands including some of the most popular such as Duracell, Energizer, Panasonic, Toshiba, Varta and others so we have decided to do a little ranking by listing the top performing models in our tests in the various load scenarios we are using for testing. As a reminder we are using constant current load tests with 0.1A, 0.2A, 0.5A and 1.0A for the 1.5V AA-size Alkaline batteries, so we are going to rate the best batteries in four different charts as we’ve seen that one battery that performs very well under low load may not be the best with higher load and vice versa…

We are going to be updating these charts as we test new batteries in order to get a clear view of the situation with battery capacity and what batteries will work best for your specific needs. Have in mind that it is not always up to the highest capacity and you should always take into consideration the price of the batteries as well. For example if the second battery in the chart offers just 1% less capacity, but you can buy it for 30% less then you might sacrifice the minimal gain in extra capacity because of the much better price, so do have that in mind as well.
