Officeworks - Duracell 9 Volt Batteries 5 Pack $12.95

29 April 2008

If you haven't already replaced your smoke detector batteries when daylight saving ended then this might be a good deal.

Office works has a 5-pack of Duracell 9 Volt batteries for $12.95 - save $7. (Works out approx. $2.60 each.)

    I know this is a good deal for duracell batteries, but I find that Alkalines in a smoke detector are overkill. in my case they lasted about 10 months vs 7 plus for Heavy duty eg Toshiba/Panasonic. The latter can be bought for $2 or less from the Reject Shop - GoLo/Warehouse/CrazyClarks - Supercheap Auto. And they lasted the extended daylight savings time period which is what all experts suggest is optimum time to replace - ie 2X a year. Also you don't have to buy more than you need. If you need the batteries for another purpose then these Duracells at this price are a good deal.

    Also you don't have to buy more than you need.
    Hubby may have gone slightly overboard in our house but we have 5 or 6 smoke detectors so need more than one battery. (No not obsessive, just very protective or safety conscious especially with regards to the children.)

What do you think?
