Question: Whats the difference between generic alkaline batteries and name brand alkaline batteries? I always see store brand such as cvs brand alkaline batteries usually on sale for a real good price vs the expensive duracell or energizer batteries. Is their any real difference between a generic alkaline battery vs a duracell or energizer alkaline battery?

Answer: You get what you pay for. Generic batteries are frequently less expensive because they don't last as long. Buy as small a pkg. of the generic batteries, and see how long the last continuously in, say a flashlight. Then do the same with a name brand. Most of the time, you wind up paying the same for a given length of performance.
