Ya that is very strange. Oh well if alkaline is working for you, rock on
i froget but like 18 years from now id guess
That is why I call them alkaleaks as you can't trust them not to alkaspew and ruin your stuff.It seems to have more to do with manufacturing variability than age. Last year I bought a bunch of Duracell AAA cells (expiration date March 2028) and put them in a plastic battery organizer. A few days ago I needed three AAAs for a remote, and found that one of the ones I grabbed had leaked. I checked the rest of the organizer and found two more that had leaked, out of about 20 total. All of these were bought at the same time, same lot, stored at room temperature, in the dark. None of them had ever been under load.
From my standpoint, alkaline batteries are simply not trustworthy. There is no way to tell a good one from a leaker. Never put alkaline batteries in something valuable.
