For the most part these AmazonBasics 9 Volt Batteries work great and for the price are an excellent value but there not for everyone and should be used and purchased with caution.
The main problem with these AmazonBasics 9V batteries is they are Slightly Larger than most other 9V batteries and the battery posts or terminals on the top of the AmazonBasics 9V are slightly shorter or protrude less than other name brand 9 volt batteries.
The AmazonBasics 9V batteries work well in my multimeter, wireless motion sensor, tone probe and tone generator however they don't fit or work with my wireless microphone, mixer, guitar tuner or CO2 detector.
I was intrigued by the slight difference in size between regular 9V batteries and the AmazonBasics brand so I took out my callipers and measured an AmazonBasics 9V and a Duracell 9V and here are the results
Length: 0.59mm Longer
When measuring the length of the battery from the top of the positive terminal to the bottom of the battery the AmazonBasics 9V battery is 0.59mm longer than a 9V Duracell battery.
Thickness: 0.53mm Thicker
When measuring the thickness the AmazonBasics battery was 0.53mm thicker than a 9V Duracell battery.
Terminal Height: 0.45mm Lower
When measuring the height or protrusion of the terminals on the AmazonBasics 9V battery compared to the Duracell it was visually evident that the terminals on the AmazonBasics 9V are lower and when measuring with callipers it turns out they indeed protrude out 0.45mm less than a 9V Duracell battery.
After measuring the two batteries I now understand why the AmazonBasics 9V batteries will not work in some of my devices. The AmazonBasics 9V battery is too big to fit into the housing of my CO2 detector and guitar tuner.
While the AmazonBasics 9V battery fits into the compartment of my cordless mic and microphone mixer the terminal posts are too short to make contact and therefore won't power up these devices.
So What's the Verdict? There's no denying these AmazonBasics Batteries are a fantastic deal and if you're a Prime Member you get an additional 20% off bringing the cost per battery down to $1.37 each, compared to $3.24 each for Duracell 9V's.
For my uses, I find the AmazonBasics batteries last about 70% as long as the Duracell's so when your factor in price and performance the AmazonBasics 9 Volts are a good value as long as they will fit and work in your device ... and that my friends is the magic question.
The bottom line - I will continue to purchase and use AmazonBasics 9V batteries for the devices they will work in and
Unfortunately I will still have to use the more costly name brand batteries for the devices they won't fit.
1) This 8-pack works out to $1.62 per battery (~$1.30 per battery for Prime members). Not many stores offer a comparable deal for 9V batteries (not including no-name or off-brand/dollar store offerings). For example, Costco sells an 8-pack of standard Duracell CopperTops for $20.99 (or $2.63 per battery). Most big-box chains and home improvement stores (e.g. Walmart, Home Depot, etc.) sell 4-packs for $13-15. Therefore, you save at least $1 (but usually more) per battery by buying the AmazonBasics product. That really adds up if you have a lot of 9V-powered devices and/or go through batteries quickly.
2) These batteries have excellent longevity. I keep track of when I install new batteries and, so far, have found that these batteries last approximately 90% as long as name-brand batteries. The only batteries that displayed a substantially longer lifetime (up to 25% longer) were Duracell Quantums... which cost approximately $6 each, even in multi-packs. So, once again, these AmazonBasics batteries provide a very good value.
1) As mentioned by several other reviewers, these batteries are substantially larger in at least two dimensions than some name-brand batteries. A couple of reviewers have also mentioned the slightly shorter than normal terminals on top of the batteries. My latest batch had these measurements (average of all eight AmazonBasics 9V batteries (plastic wrappers removed)):
H: 45.15 mm
W: 25.89 mm
D: 17.12 mm
Compare that to the average measurements from a 6-pack of Energizer Max 9V ($21.98 at Home Depot):
H: 43.57 mm
W: 25.88 mm
D: 16.67 mm
A millimetre here or there doesn't seem like a lot, but it can actually be a showstopper. Many reviewers have noted that the AmazonBasics 9Vs won't fit in a variety of their devices, either because the batteries are too big or the terminals are too short. This was true in my case, as well.
I tallied up all of the 9V-powered devices in my house and tried the AmazonBasics batteries in them. Of the 23 devices (yeah, 23!), they wouldn't fit in 10 of them. Four smoke detectors, a digital postal scale, a portable headphone amp, a guitar tuner, the battery backups for two AC-powered CO detectors, and the battery backup for a clock radio. Nine of these devices use hard plastic battery holders that are just a bit too tight to squeeze the batteries into. The other device uses a battery holder (similar to Yosoo 3pcs 9V Plastic Battery Holder, DIY Battery Storage Case BOX ON/OFF Switch w Cap/Cover ) with connectors that refuse to snap on to the shorter terminals.
Meanwhile, all of the devices that could accommodate the AmazonBasics 9Vs had larger battery compartments using cables with snap-on terminals.
So, what can we do about this issue? Is this size thing a deal-breaker? Well, no, it's not. The answer is remarkably simple: Use these AmazonBasics 9Vs in the devices that they fit into. If they don't fit, then use name-brand batteries that do fit. See? Problem solved. :)
Thanks Amazon for a great everyday basic item. :)
Also I got these during Amazon Prime sale.
