The 1.5V AA Kodak Max Alkaline batteries are the standard Alkaline batteries from Kodak that we tested here. We were actually quite interested to see how these batteries will perform considering the fact that Kodak is a well know name in the photography world. The batteries we tested were with an expiration date of 07-2017 and we could not find any official information about their shelf life, but it is most likely 5 years.


We have started the test of the 1.5V AA Kodak Max Alkaline batteries as we normally do with a low constant current discharge rate of 0.1A and the result we got was 2084 mAh as capacity – decent performance at low loads, but nothing spectacular here. Increasing the constant current load to 0.2A the batteries still do quite good at 1529 mAh, however going with higher loads of 0.5A the useable capacity we got was not that good. And at the 1.0A test we managed to get only about 45 mAh before reaching the cut-off voltage, clearly showing that these Kodak batteries were not designed to handle well higher loads, though they perform at about average level with low loads.

The performance of the 1.5V AA Kodak Max Alkaline batteries in our tests:

– 2084 mAh at 0.1A load
– 1529 mAh at 0.2A load
– 481 mAh at 0.5A load
– 45 mAh at 1.0A load

– 2.512 Wh at 0.1A load
– 1.780 Wh at 0.2A load
– 0.535 Wh at 0.5A load
– 0.048 Wh at 1.0A load
