Batteries are one of those items that seem logical to buy cheap, but don’t let that assumption deceive you. Batteries do expire over time, and ones at the dollar store are likely to be inexpensive because they are old.

The longer a battery sits, the less energy it has. That means those dollar batteries may run out before a more expensive pack will. Plus, they may be made with an outdated formula that isn’t as effective as more modern ones.
