Batteries for school project

    Hello I was wondering if anyone could help with with a question I have
    about batteries. I'm working on a school project that requires the use
    of batteries and I have a choice between alkalines or heavy duty
    batteries. I've read that alkaline batteries operate much better in the
    cold (my project will be outside in the cold weather) and last a lot
    longer than the heavy duty kind. Heavy duty batteries are not as good
    as alkalines are they?

    "Heavy Duty" batteries aren't. These days they have no purpose in life
    other than to avoid the "batteries not included" label. Stick with
    alkalines.

    Well i can say that i use alkalines this holiday and one of my
    relatives used the heavy duty kind and at the end of the day his things
    were dead and my sons stuff was still going.Gotta love them.

    Thanks for all the replies. I've decided to use alkalines because
    everywhere I've read has said they're much better for what I need them
    for. I think I'm going to try and convince my family to start buying
    them after all I've learned. I'm sure they think that heavy duty means
    the best when in reality it doesn't even compare to alkaline. Thanks
    again.

    You could explain to them that they got the monicker "Heavy Duty" back
    in the days when zinc-carbon cells were all they had, like 1945. But
    the've made some discoveries since then, and the world wasn't ready
    for "Ultra-Heavy-Duty" when they discovered the Alkaline. ;-)

    Cheers!

    Well im glad that you like myself finally realized that these heavy
    duty batteries arent what the name says.I use to think they were good
    but now all i use are alkaline batteries.

    good luck on your project and i hope this helped.Remember alkalines are
    always better and get ride of any heavy duty batteries couse they are
    garbage.
