Science Reveals CVS Generic AA Batteries Suck

Our science-obsessed cousins over at Consumer Reports decided to test some AA batteries to see which ones were the best. The results? Generic CVS batteries suck! They took the fewest amount of pictures in CR’s digital cameras before giving out.

The best deal turned out to be a package of rechargeable batteries from Sanyo called “Eneloop.” The difference was huge. The Sanyo rechargeable batteries took over 400 pictures while CVS disposable ones took only 92.
