Duracell AA Coppertop Batteries / Batteries now have very short life

1 United States Review updated:

The most recent 4 and 8-paks of Duracell Coppertop AA batteries (marked well within sell-by date) have had a life of roughly 2 WEEKS. Until recently, the life for same use (computer mouse, remote control, etc) had been several months.

    My camera warned me that battery was at 10% level and I had only one set of cells left. So as I was in Halkaidiki Greece, and outside a National Market store I purchased a 4 pack of AA cells dated MAR2019, so well in date. After 140 RAW hi-res shots and the last of cells, I loaded the Duracell ones, the camera booted up and immediately shut down! Taking the cells out and cleaning the ends gave a better result, for one shot BUT then gave a 4 beep tone then shut down #*#*!!#* As I still had the first set in my pocket I tried them, and they worked, :0) refitting the #*#*!!#* Duracell ones still gave the poor result! #*#*!!#* Duracell !!
    A digital voltmeter gave a 1.589V off load and 0.93V per cell on a 100mA at a 1 second load #*#*!!#* Duracell

    I will be sending these back to #*#*!!#* Duracell
    I think that original complaint is fully justified
