RAYOVAC Dry Cells And Batteries

Post by Guest on Mon Sep 29, 2014 6:22 pm

Has anyone purchased RAYOVAC AA, AAA, C or D cells lately?  They have a promotion on the package which stayes "Lasts as long as Eveready."  What's up with that?

BTW.......I've had a few AA's go dead in a few weeks of storage!

I would say it's a Freudian slip. Those little units have been erupting and destroying small appliances since long before I used my first yellow and blue destruct capsules in any favorite flashlight. They should have marketed them as crystal garden kits.

Remember when they put those little green bands across the top terminal for a while to seal in something?

Those were the most available batteries where I grew up. They make good industrial batteries. Especially the spring top 6 volts.

To me, RayOvac is old school. They were once a respectable brand, now they're second shelf specials. And if they are comparing themselves to EVEREARDY, that's really a joke to me.

That's like saying the new 2014 Fiat 500 runs as smooth as a well tuned Packard Carribean!

Second fiddle playing on even more obscure references!

lol!

On their website, they are comparing themselves to both energizer and duracell. I've had each of them leak on occasion, seems fair to me.

Both Ray-O-Vac and Everyready have quit making the 22.5 and 30 volt batteries necessary for some old VOM's to operate. I am not disposed to connecting a wheelbarrow full of hearing aid batteries together to make this stuff work again. Amazon and Batteries Plus supply this battery, branded "Excell". Do any of you have experience with this brand? It may be a moot question, as we may not have another choice. They want $10.95 for the 22.5 and I have not priced out the 30 volt one yet.

It looks like they have become the only game in town, but at least they have a line up. I hadn't heard about them until you mentioned them. They are listed on Ebay, but I got this in an online search...

Made in America, eh? I don't see the 30 volt model listed. I need that one for my old Triplett meter. Thanks, 75.

Thanks for the link, I didn't know they exist.

They need to put the decimal point in the voltage listing!!!!

I found them on Google when I went on the hunt for a battery for the remote on my Concert Grand. Thanks for posting the link.

Funny you should mention that! I went in the attic of my farm house yesterday and found 2 "D" cells in an old Erector Set. They were labeled for Sears and one of they still has the green band across the positive terminal. I should be back there in a day or two and will take a picture of them.

They did have an attractive looking label. It looks like they are making their newest look a bit like the old ones. Usually Bing has some old pics mixed in with the current ones in their images, but that was not the case with rayovac batteries.
