I am a photojournalist and I use those batteries for my flashes. Lasting batteries are critical for my job and those where a huge disappointment. I had maybe 1/4 of the power and duration that I usually have with known brands. I will not buy again.

HASH(0xa2501c18) out of 5 stars Batteries are Batteries are Batteries. Unsure about Green Eco-friendly Claims Sept. 3 2015
By Memly - Published on Amazon.com
Vine Customer Review of Free Product
Green eco-friendly claims? I'm not sure about that. Here are my observations from using them in my children's toys, TV remote controllers, and wireless keyboards and mice.

1. Lots of batteries for the price. This is a good deal for the price.
2. Claims to be lead, cadmium or mercury free. This is great but I have no way of verifying this.
3. Doesn't last as long as my Duracell but lasts longer than my rechargeables. This is based on casual use and observation. I did not do experiments to prove this.
4. Recyclable. But you cannot just throw them into your recycle bin. Recycling is free through their company but you'll need to have purchased a certain minimum amount. One pack of these does not qualify. You'll need to purchase at least two. I still just pack up these batteries with my other used ones and take them all to a local facility that collects batteries.

In the end, I don't think I would go out of my way to buy these batteries. Batteries are batteries are batteries. These work and I like them about as much as all the other batteries I've used in the past.

HASH(0xa2501e40) out of 5 stars Battery Ram Aug. 31 2015
By D Strick - Published on Amazon.com
Vine Customer Review of Free Product
Going Green is a noble cause and GoGreen Power Alkaline AA's are trying to go along with it. Certain environmentally hazardous metals (lead, cadmium, mercury) are not present. I'm not smart enough to know how these affect the life or power of the battery but these seem to perform like a mid level battery so are good for small power items like remotes, etc. But items that draw a lot of power like a large (or older) digital camera not so much. Still, a decent value for 48 around the house batteries.

The company says these are recyclable and I believe that. They also offer free recycling but the rub is you have to have 72 batteries first. That means you can't freely recycle these via their site until you buy more and save these up. It's still good I suppose but you don't necessarily know that. I'm sure it mitigates some cost for them to have it so.

HASH(0xa25040c0) out of 5 stars Better Than Rechargeables But Confusing Packaging Aug. 20 2015
By Dave Greenbaum - Published on Amazon.com
Vine Customer Review of Free Product
I like the concept of a battery that contains no lead, cadmium or mercury. That's better for the environment. The box I received is rated to last for six years in storage

This product has some deceptive claims. First the recycling is free only if you get "75" points based on your purchase. This package only has 48 points, so you'll need to buy two to recycle the product. They don't mention that on the box.

They also mention on the box, and the site that they are "VetCanDo" and state they are "working with veterans and other companies to hire veterans and bring manufacturing from offshore back to the USA." However, the product is made in China.

I don't know how long they'll last, but the deception in packaging makes me unlikely to purchase another pack.

HASH(0xa250403c) out of 5 stars These batteries will push your buttons Sept. 7 2015

Vine Customer Review of Free Product
Like others that received these through Vine, it is too early to report on their lifespan. I have found no online sources comparing them to other brands. Nor do I feel the need at this point to investigate further. Getting these has inspired me to learn more about Alkaline batteries than I ever thought I cared to know.

I will now saddle up my High Horse.

Did you ever see on the back of an aerosol can "No CFCs." They fail to mention that CFCs were banned decades ago in the US. But you think buying that can is good for the environment. That's one of the many ways that companies differentiate themselves falsely from their competition. It's taking advantage of peoples good nature, ignorance, and affection for symbolic gestures. With that in mind, let's take a look at these GoGreen batteries.

I hate to burst the bubble of all those well meaning individuals that give these batteries such a glowing review because they're GREEN. GREEN, I tell ya! But here I go.

Let's compare theses with Duracell and Rayovac, the 2 most popular brands. Since they have virtually identical specs, we'll group them together as OG (Other Guys). GoGreen will be GG.

Claim.........................GG.............OG

Mercury Free..............Yes............Yes (for 20 years)
Lead Free..................Yes............Yes (lead acid(car) batteries have lead)
Cadmium Free............Yes............Yes (They're not Ni-Cads!)
Made in USA...............Yes............Yes
Recyclable..................Yes............Yes (Sort of. See below.)
Shelf Life....................6??............10 (GG just says best by 2021)
Word GREEN on label ..Yes............NO
Green Color................Yes............NO
American Flag.............Yes............NO
If you don't have that flagpin on, you don't love America. GoGreen supports VetsCanDo. A quick glance at their website and they don't seem to do much. It was last updated 3 years ago.

As for recycling, there just isn't much in an alkaline battery worth recycling. It's not the same as recycling single ingredient items like aluminum cans. They point out in their copy that nothing in the batteries is harmful to the environment. And they also state on their website that sending the batteries in has a carbon footprint. Sorting, transporting, separating and cleaning the different materials all have a carbon footprint. It may actually be worse for the environment.

Marketing strategies like this may be common, but that doesn't make it acceptable. GoGreen batteries merit a 'Dishonorable Discharge'.
