You would not beleive the number of electronic devices that I have had ruined by Duracell batteries leaking!
I have had at least 30 or 40 different devices that have had these inferior batteries leak, from ham radios, cameras, toys, remotes, clocks, tools... any electronic devices that I leave these in for an extended period of time and forget that they are Duracell Leakers!
I try to remember, but have so often forgotten to remove them, what a pain! I now use either Panasonic eneloop AA Ni-MH Pre-Charged Rechargeables, Panasonic Platinum Power AA Alkaline, or Energizer Ultimate Lithium AA, none of which have leaked yet.
