Our testing process was fairly simple but effective. We used the exact same brand of flashlight (Maglite Xenon) all straight from the box. Each pair of batteries tested came from different stores around the Portland, OR area. Set 1 came from Fred Meyer, set 2 from Target and set 3 from Safeway. We did this to make sure we used different shipments and manufacturing dates from the battery companies.

While the procedure was not necessarily scientific, it gives you an indication of what you might expect when purchasing not only batteries, but any product on the market today. It’s always good to do your own research and make purchases based on what you find to work over a long period of time.

The oddest result was with the Energizer 9x Ultimate. It did not perform as expected. After some research we found that this particular battery is mainly intended to be used in high-draw electronics such as digital cameras. However, the marketing on the box says it is GREAT for flashlights. Go figure…
