Fresh Batteries for Less
Sam’s Club carries a wide variety of alkaline batteries in standard sizes including 9-volt, AAA, AA, C, sub-C and D size cells for all your alkaline battery requirements. We also stock a selection of hearing aid alkaline batteries too. So whether you’re replacing batteries in your smoke alarms, powering flashlights and toys or ensuring your hearing aids enable you to keep up with the conversation, you’re sure to find the size you need.
Because alkaline battery life depends on when the battery was made, not when it was put into service, Sam’s Club stocks batteries with recent date codes to ensure you’re buying alkaline batteries that are “fresh,” not those that have been sitting on the shelf for a few years.
How long your alkaline batteries last depends on many factors, especially how much current the device you put the battery in drains as it’s in use. Devices that require a large amount of power, such as digital cameras, use more power from your alkaline battery, which shortens its life, whereas devices such as smoke detectors and watches that use less power enable your alkaline batteries to last longer. So, to ensure you get the best use from your devices, be sure to purchase a larger quantity of alkaline batteries to keep on hand for power-demanding electronic devices such as digital cameras.
Also keep in mind that alkaline batteries have a slightly increased capacity when they’re warm but their capacity drops by a large margin at temperatures below freezing. So if you’re using devices with alkaline batteries in very low temperatures, stock up from Sam’s Club to ensure you have enough to keep your device powered and ready to go.
