Which batteries are best

Which batteries are best

I've been tracking battery life for pager and Palmtop for over three years and Panasonics always outlast every other brand by a wide margin. Duracells are at the opposite end of the spectrum. In addition to their poor Palmtop life span, people have found that they cannot provide the sharp peaks of power needed by some flash cards. I cant find Panasonics discounted here so I usually use Toshibas or Evereadys. I will never put Duracells in anything more important than the pager even if work does provide them.

My estimates on battery life in a pager that is on 24 hours 7 days a week, from worst to best:

Duracells -- 2 weeks

All others not listed -- 3 weeks

Toshibas -- 4-5 weeks

Eveready -- 4-5 weeks

Panasonics -- 5-6 weeks (occasionally 8 weeks)
