Recently I purchased the Duracell Rechargeable Kit from Costco. I’m all about saving money, but even more important is finding overall value. Therefore, I’ll compare rechargeable batteries to conventional batteries at Costco. (My review on Duracell is unpaid.)
First, a word from this post’s sponsor:
I’ve partnered with @Downy to share that Infusions CALM scent booster fabric softener is now available at Costco across Canada for a LIMITED TIME. Pick up your bottle now(3.4 L each) for just $15.99.
Downy Infusions CALM freshens and softens clothes while the relaxing scent of lavender and vanilla bean instantly transports you to moments of cozy, calm, tranquility!
Costco Duracell Rechargeable vs. Conventional Comparison
Duracell Triple AAA Pack of 48 for $27.99 = $.58 cents/battery
Duracell Double AA Pack of 48 for $27.99 = $.58 cents/battery
Duracell Rechargeable 4 AA & 4 AAA with a Quick Charger for $24.99 = $3.12/battery
Better for the environment
Duracell says on the packaging that these batteries can be charged up to 1000 cycles. Therefore, rechargeable batteries will have a very long life span. In addition, it’s also nice to have less waste.
Less is more
Conventional batteries at Costco come in packages of 48 per battery size. To buy a pack each of AA and AAA, I’d have to buy a total of 96 batteries! Most batteries will just sit in storage and eventually lose some of their charge.
Convenience and the Fully Charged Indicator
Rechargeable batteries take only an hour to charge and the charger indicates batteries are ready with a green light. Side benefit: No more mixing up old, dead batteries with new ones.
