Anyone else use these? They're only $1 at the Dollar Store for an 8 pack and they actually work VERY well with the 360/Wii Controllers. So if you have a wireless controller that needs batteries alot GET THOSE!

There can only be one, like in that foreign movie where there could only be one, and in the end there is only one dude left, because that was the point.

I have rechargable duracells. They're expensive for a pack of four, but they have an insane amount of charge in them (they outstrip standard non-rechargables). Haven't bought any batteries in about two years now :3

I use the rechargeable Duracells too, and have that 4-battery charger thing; they're great. Though for 360 i of course use the rechargeable MS battery packs with the dual charging station; bought that straight away with my 360.

I get my batteries (Energizer Max) wholesale from my cousin since he sells them in his shop. I get a 24 pack once a year (two batteries run my 360 controller for almost 60 hours) for $4 and change. As a matter of fact, I just bought some from him Monday. He offers to give them to me for free, but the less I have anything that his family can say "Well he did this or that for you", the better

Amen brother.

I use rechargeables for heavily used electronics/game controllers. I used to keep up with all those fancy-schmancy proprietary battery packs then I was like...meh...why bother? I can get more regular rechargeable batteries for the same price and I can use them in anything.

I still buy the occasional $1 pack at Target for thy kiddie electronics in the house.

I use these rechargeable batterie packs that come with a charging dock. It works great but the battery pack doesn't fit very well in there and I think it broke. Perhaps I'll try a different brand. There's plenty of companies that sell these things.

I love rechargeable batteries for things that get a lot of use (like my Wiimotes) but you can't beat an 8 pack of sunbeams for a dollar at the dollar store. In my tv remotes they will last a long time. Not to mention I have a lot of stuff that requires the use of batteries and its annoying to recharge so many of them every time i need some batteries. These cheap ones come in handy in emergencies.

I have about two dozen camera batteries which I use with a 4-cell charger (three wiimotes (6), two cameras(6) with separate flash (4), wavebird (2), and balance board(4), and a few to swap with). They seem to last longer than the average batteries and I don't have to bother going out to buy more. Since I bought them separately (whenever I got something which required more batteries) the batteries are not all the same brand. 4 of them are Optex (came with charger), 11 are energizer (list one, so had to buy a third 4-pack), and the rest (12) are Kodak. The Optex and Kodak ones are near-equal, but surprisingly the Energizers last about 1.2x as long as the others. Meanwhile, the batteries which came with the wiimotes/balance board were quite good and lasted for about two weeks of heavy play!

I used to work at a facility that dealt with batteries people sent in for disposal so I can't stand to use the non-rechargeable ones.

Once you've seen what leaking batteries will do to an industrial metal bin you realize what can happen when they hit a landfill.
