After having FAR too many Duracells leak on me, I look for Energizers or Ray-O-Vacs. Christmas day, replaced the nearly dead 4-D cells in the large, modern-day lantern we keep in the backroom behind the security desk. Energizer brand in them, replaced with newer Energizers. I bought that lantern about 8 years ago, and I'm usually the one who replaces the batteries in it. It's basically back there for anyone covering my shift during my nights off, in case of an emergency.
