I will only run Energizer Max or Duracell. All my cams use AA's. I can get 5-7k pics during the cold months and still have life left.

If you bought Energizer Ultimate Lithiums in the store, you probably paid too much. Buy them in bulk on Amazon.com to get the lowest price per battery.

Energizer Ultimate Lithiums. Worth the extra money for sure.

Don't just look at the price of the batteries. Look at all the other expenses involved in running cameras - your time, gas or maybe going to check a camera only to find out it died 2 weeks ago and you have no fresh data. That is the worst.

It's no different than the price of cameras. You get what you pay for.

I can get 48 of the Ray o vacs for the price of 8 of the lithiums.


They ARE expensive. But I get almost a year out of them in all my cameras that use AAs. I've seen most brands of standard AAs run dead in 2-4 weeks.

When is Duracell going to produce a Lithium AA to compete with Energizer? I don't understand what they are waiting for. Does Energizer have the technology patented or something? We sure could use some price competition.
