There is one advantage - if you wanna build a stock of cells for power outage/grid down prepping, you can do that cheaper with alkalines, and you won't have to worry at all about self-discharge. And, for what it's worth, I've never heard of Panasonic alkalines leaking. I've got some of those stocked - they have 'em at Dollarama for cheap. I'd like to eventually have my case fully stocked with Eneloops, though (or, in my case, rewraps thereof). Self-discharge shouldn't really be a problem with those.I'm not sure I understand this. For long runtime alkaline is the worst choice. Unless it's a tv remote. But then I don't want it wrecked so I still use nimh. Nimh is not a green option, it's better than alkaline in every single measurable way. Alkaline has no advantages. Except extremely low draw devices. But still not worth the leaking
With how much that plastic costs, no wonder you don't wanna load 'em up with NiMHI have storacells full of alkalines. I can keep going and going and going so to speak.
