The 1.5V AAA GP Super Alkaline batteries are the low-end Alkaline batteries from GP, then there is of course the Carbon Zinc as an even lower level, even though the Super in the name may suggest they may be some mid or even high-end solutions. As supposedly better Alkaline batteries GP also offer an Ultra Alkaline as well as Ultra Plus Alkaline series that we are also going to be checking out soon to see what kind of capacity they will be able to provide compared to the standard Super Alkaline. Anyway, the GP Super Alkaline batteries we tested here were with an expiration date set to 01-2019, meaning 6 years of shelf life and let us see what capacity you can expect to get from them as well…


Beginning our test of the 1.5V AAA GP Super Alkaline batteries as we usually do with a low constant current discharge rate of 0.1A we have managed to get 915 mAh as capacity, a result that is quite good for a “standard level” Alkaline batteries. Going to higher constant current discharge rates the batteries still do perform quite well, though at 0.5A load the result was a bit disappointing and thus hinting that these batteries are not designed for very high power applications. So in overall the capacity provided by the 1.5V AAA GP Super Alkaline batteries is very good.

The performance of the 1.5V AAA GP Super Alkaline batteries in our tests:

– 915 mAh at 0.1A load
– 666 mAh at 0.2A load
– 487 mAh at 0.3A load
– 203 mAh at 0.5A load

– 1.097 Wh at 0.1A load
– 0.778 Wh at 0.2A load
– 0.550 Wh at 0.3A load
– 0.226 Wh at 0.5A load
