it was nice to know that I had reliable batteries to last ...

My reason for the four stars is because these batteries do not last as long as the name brands do.
My reasons for the four stars are because these batteries last almost as long as the name brands and for the price, you get more batteries and that means more burn time for less money.
I will use these until I run out and then buy more and use them as reserve until I burn through the more powerful batteries that do not have the long shelf life these batteries have.
I used them in some lanterns I purchased from Amazon for a trip to my cabin that had no power and only a few soft light propane lights. The lanterns paired with these batteries made what could have been a dark few nights into light filled areas bright enough to read in.
If you are into prepping or end world scenarios, stock up on these. They claim to have a long term shelf life so they will be invaluable.
I will personally purchase several more boxes of the most common sizes and keep them in the basement for the just in case, plus some more for the cabin.
Coming from an area where there is a light energy few hundred feet, it was nice to know that I had reliable batteries to last through the night. Plus a near half full box as a back up.
I'm not sure how many hours they were used, but I'm thinking that one lantern was on for over four hours in total and never dimmed. But I can not tell how long they will last. I imagine through the night would be a good estimate. A little more or less, so keep plenty on hand until the name brands go on sale. Then add those to the collection.
For a few bucks, you can have enough power to last upwards of ten years if needed.
