Short Service Life

Watertown - 2

Using in my Truglo Laser/light combo gun sight. Two (2) batteries are used in this application. I've gone through two (2) sets of these batteries (now on the third) and have found the working life span to be but a couple of months per set - this while the sight is typically not powered up and in an "off/standby" state. I find this unacceptable, as the general purpose and use of this sight is for an emergency situation.

Shortest lasting battery I have ever used

Sparky - 1

I bought the Arlo Security System with 3 cameras. Each camera takes 4 batteries. The original batch lasted about 3 weeks and I wasn't upset because I figured that they had been sitting for a while. After replacing them I watched the battery drain very closely and saw them drain completely in 4 weeks with the average use per camera of 4 hours per day. The issue is not just the cost but the time that it takes to get the extension ladder out, climb up to each camera, and having the whole neighborhood watch me change them because it must be done during the daytime. And over the course of 18 months, my neighbors started asking what kind of batteries they were taking to go out so quickly. Some were very puzzled when I told them Duracell. I am now searching for rechargeable batteries to use so I imagine that I'll be going through a few more companies trying to find a battery that won't have me climbing my ladder as often as I wash my truck. I would like to recommend a solution to my friends and neighbors but at this time I can not.

Use the CR123A with my Arlo cameras for two years. Duracell last longer the Energizer or Panasonic. Forget the clones. Only fast drain issue was fixed with Arlo software patch. Weather affects battery life. Buy from trusted source. Should get 8-10 year expiration date.

Do not last long in Arlo cameras

Duracell ultra lithium 123 battery-USED TO BE GOOD

NANA90 - 1

When my security system was installed the batteries lasted quite a while. Over the past 3 years the life of the batteries have declined a lot. I do not remember the original batteries having chinese characters on them. The newer ones do. Does this mean that my securty system is using knock off chinese batteries and I am paying for them. They seem to go bad in a few months. They also said that the batteries do not last as long during the winter months. At this rate I am going to have to give up my security. because I cannot afford batteries.
