"OK - my heart didn't miss a beat when I bought a pack of batteries but...1) they were in stock [and not everyone sells D cells] 2) they were a good price 3) they are in sensible packaging so that when you take the first battery out the box doesn't fall to bits and 4) they have got a guaranteed 10 year shelf life. Therefore, happy punter!"
"Wanted these batteries for my granddaughter's birthday present - a Cuckoo Clock. These batteries are the best on the market and have lasted for ages. We'll all have a laugh when the cuckoo pops out on the hour."
"Not the cheapest, but on the whole worth the extra. Have always been reliable and long lasting. Never had a duracell leak on me and damage a battery contact / casing. No reason to expect these Duracell 'Ds" would be any different."
