Never again. When they do the leaking acid can do irreparable damage to whatever the battery is in. She had to point it out. My Duracell AA batteries leaked and ruined my 70.$$flashlite, had them 1year, acid leaked on bottom. Trashed my thermostat and remotes on my TVs Purchased a large amount and will have to sacrifice As far back when they first sold them late 70’s and to this day I have known numerous people and friends/family had them leak in every device. I am contunally experancing leaking duracell batteries at the negative terminal. Batteries can be recycled through local programs or thrown away with your regular trash in every state except California, where they must be recycled. Two Maglite flashlights had to be thrown away, in that the Duracell AA batteries fused to the inside flashlight housings. It makes me mad that they didn’t even repsond to my email. You are absolutely RIGHT. They were in a range of electronics from an air matress, Xbox controllers, TV remotes, flashlights, portable speakers, FM transmitter, camping gear, walkie talkies, and other things.
