Get Your next Batteries at Walmart Today! Where can you get the best deals and selection when buying batteries? Sure, you can stop by your local supermarket, gas station or electronics store and snag a pack of AAAs for the remote, but it's almost never going to be at the best possible price. And, if you need something specialized, like a replacement battery for a boat or a power tool, the chances of finding exactly what you need - without having to drive to many different stores - are pretty slim.

Lucky for all of us, getting the right-sized battery for every application - key fobs, home security systems, remote control toys, and the basics around the home - is as simple as going online. Many online battery retailers offer a much bigger variety than anything you'll find locally, with brands you know like Energizer and Duracell, along with store-brand options that can save you a lot of money for the same amount of power and longevity.

Battery Junction

BATTERY JUNCTION

Return Policy:

Request return within 7 days, return within 15 days

15% restocking fee

From batteries and chargers to flashlights and more, Battery Junction wants to help you "gear up [and] power on". Based in Connecticut, the company has been in business for over 15 years and aims to get you the right batteries at the right price.

If you want to take your understanding of batteries to the next level, check out the Battery Junction Knowledge Center. (We found the link at the top of the site, or through the Deals tab.) Want to know how to keep your batteries stored safely? Curious about which flashlights were the best over the 2010-2020 decade? How about an LED upgrade guide? You'll find all of that and more on this part of the website - or submit any topics they haven't covered through Battery Junction's social media channels.

While you can certainly search for the kind of battery you need, you can also browse by category:

  • All Batteries
  • Size (complete with helpful thumbnail images, in case you don't know the kind of battery you're trying to replace)
  • Chemistry: Alkaline, Lithium, NiMH, Zinc, Li-Ion, and so on
  • Brand: nearly 50 to choose from
  • Voltage
  • Application: shop by what you're using the battery for (e.g. watch, home safe, flashlight, home security system, defibrillator, etc.)
  • Type: non-rechargeable, rechargeable, button/coin, etc.

Let's consider how Battery Junction measured up with our two apples-to-apples items. While they didn't have the exact same 20-pack of Duracell coppertop AA batteries, their closest options were the 16-piece package for $16.50 and the box of 24 for $20.40. On the other hand, we came up empty when looking for the replacement battery for our Moto G4 Play. Battery Junction carries just over 40 cell phone replacement batteries, all of which are under the Empire brand and no OEM options. If you've got a Samsung or older model iPhone, you might still be able to find the right off-brand battery here.

When we visited the Battery Junction site, we got a pop-up discount offer of 5% if we signed up for their email newsletter. There was also a promotion in place for free shipping on orders over $50 and a flat rate ground shipping upgrade for $5 on smaller orders.

Battery Junction gets high marks when it comes to customer satisfaction. At the time of our review, this retailer had earned accreditation and an "A+" rating from the Better Business Bureau. Even more compelling were the more than 15,000 independently-verified customer ratings, with an average of 4.5 out of 5 stars. Shoppers say that they consistently find low prices when buying batteries from Battery Junction, with thousands of loyal repeat customers in the mix.

On the other hand, their return policy is a little lackluster. While they do allow returns (some competitor sites don't), you'll have to make your request within a week and get the products back to them within 15 days. You'll also be charged a 15% restocking fee.

Battery Junction is a good option for batteries of almost every type. Their prices are competitive, the site is easy to shop (and very informative!), and their strong track record of customer satisfaction is a definite plus. This is a store worth considering for your next purchase of batteries.

Disposable batteries are non-returnable

Established in 2004 in Silicon Valley, Tenergy Corporation specializes in comprehensive battery and charger products, especially rechargeables. They pride themselves on offering US-based customer support, answering questions about batteries for everyday home usage, providing troubleshooting and technical help, and guiding customers in choosing the right custom battery for projects and applications.

Given that Tenergy is its own brand of battery, you shouldn't be surprised that we didn't find our Duracell or OEM Moto cell phone comparison batteries in their inventory. Their 24-pack of self-branded AA batteries sells for just $6 (less than half of what the Duracell batteries cost). Tenergy Power doesn't carry any cell phone replacement batteries at all.

What you'll find on the Tenergy site that you might not find elsewhere are specialty batteries. Has your Airsoft gone lost its kick? Maybe your drone isn't flying quite as high as it used to? For various recreational items that require a battery, your best bet might actually be Tenergy. You'll find your options most easily under the Hobby & Toys heading. Even your Roomba and IRobot vacuums can get a boost with new batteries from this store. Check under the Application subheading in the Batteries category to see if they carry the specific type you need.

Keep an eye out for special deals. We spotted a free shipping code at the top of the site, for all orders over $50.

The return policy with Tenergy is reasonable. You'll have 30 days to return any rechargeable batteries for a refund; disposable batteries aren't accepted as a return for any reason.

We had originally thought that Tenergy would come in with a higher 4-star rating in our reviews. But, looking at the available feedback, we had to downgrade the company slightly. Why? A "B-" from the Better Business Bureau (under the name of Tenergy's parent company, All-Battery) for failure to respond to a handful of customer complaints was not what we were hoping to find. Our ranking would definitely go up if the BBB grade reflected improvements in the future.

On the other hand, we found nearly 3000 customer reviews giving Tenergy a rating of 4 or 5 stars out of 5. People seemed happy with the quality and pricing of the batteries, the speed of shipping, and the overall buying experience. And, on at least one third-party review site, Tenergy reps seemed to be responding promptly and appropriately to customer concerns and complaints.

You'll definitely get a good value from Tenergy batteries, compared with the familiar name-brand options on the market. (You'll even find Tenergy batteries sold in some of the other online battery stores in our review!) But, if you need name-brand batteries for some reason, Tenergy isn't going to be the retailer for you.

Some stores even offer a discount if you opt into their automatic delivery program, so that you're never left empty-handed when the video game remotes run out of juice or the smoke detector starts chirping.

As you consider the various online battery stores out there, how can you tell which one should get your business? Here are several criteria you can keep in mind as you shop:

  • Selection. A battery store is only a good option if they carry what you need! Does the store offer all of the battery types you need? Do you have several brands and package sizes to choose from?
  • Price. Are the batteries affordable? Does the store offer money-saving perks like free shipping or promotional discounts?
  • Return/Refund Policy. Because batteries can be considered "hazardous materials", not all stores accept returns. If you order the wrong size or just want to return your order, will the store allow it? Will you get a full refund, or should you expect a restocking fee?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best battery stores that you'll find online. We hope this information helps you find the exact batteries you need, with minimal hassle and maximum savings!
