I am letting go of this battery mess, and switching to other brands besides Duracell and Energizer.
I have favored Energizer over the years: I don’t know why. Sam’s stopped carrying Energizer, and began touting the Duracell, which I hate: I don’t know why.
But since that what Sam’s had, Duracell is what I bought.
I am now disillusioned with both brands, although comparatively, Energizer is probably better all around. The ratio of failed Duracell batteries in my possession far exceeds that of Energizer…probably three to four times as much.false
What did I expect? I expected them to last 10 years in the package as advertised.
Me? Read the fine print? Why? Why would huge corporations advertise in large print, then backpedal with fine print.
OH YES! OUR BATTERIES LAST 10 YEARS IN THE PACKAGE!!! GUARANTEED!!
and then have fine print that says
The above statement is a bullshit lie.
Go ahead, you dumb fuckin’ consumer and buy this shit at your own risk.
No warranty is implied.
We’re laughing all the way to the bank
That would be like OUR COFFEE IS THE BEST! BUY A TWIN PACK TODAY!
then, somewhere on the edge of the packaging using a magnifying glass it says
Our coffee is the best on the block.
Rats love it too.
May contain droppings and tiny rats besides employee fingers and spit…and other bodily fluids.
A lie, is a lie, is a lie, and so is false advertising.
I fully expected them to replace them, not force me to buy more with lame-assed coupons.
