Can’t say that I carry any cash - seldom
living in Alaska in the 50's and 60's my old man used to say " never cross the street without a sleeping bag and $100"

just to make this a complaint..... that is a lot of cash on hand now days...... I don't take the sleeping bag any more, but you will often find $100 in my wallet

Duracell batteries. They used to be about the best. Unfortunately something seems to have changed. This is so typical of every Duracell battery we've had in the last few years.

Yeah they'll replace the stuff the battery ruins but geez, I'd rather just have a quality battery.

Yep they've had a problem the last four or five years I've gone to rayovac and they're a little bit better and less expensive... My complaint is none of the batteries are what they used to be...

I switched to Procell by Duracell, much better battery's. I just changed out my trail cams and they were still taking pictures after a year out in the woods and no leaks.

I tried Rayovacs in my trail cams, they've been as good as you can reasonably expect. I'm happy.

Wifey has been buying Sam's Club Members Mark batteries lately, those have been decent too.

At this point anything that has anything to do with anything Durcell won't be getting my $$$. I've had enough of their junk.

As noted above, I used Rayovacs in my trail cams a few years ago, just last Sunday I pulled a set out. I think a lot of that has to do with how many pics its getting.

I set all my cams to video - if you don't try it sometime, it's awesome. One of my cams has had over 325 videos in the last 2 weeks.

Needless to say its a pretty busy trail. :)

^^^ I'd like to complain those are 35% more than standard Duracells, just so I'm not getting junk. Nope, not paying it. Duracell had my business, they've lost it. At this point I'm not sure they'll ever get it back.

I'd also like to complain those are between $1.00 and $1.66 more per battery than Rayovacs.

Rayovacs at Home Depot for the win.

I want to complain I need to use my reading glasses to cut painting now.
I also want to complain I did half the room before I caved in and got them…

I'd like to complain that I've had to use my wife's cheaters a few times in the last month.

I don't wear glasses so this is foreign to me. Is it normal for your eyes to stop working so suddenly?

Thought that I was good since I reached 48 without glasses...

40 years old is the usual benchmark. You got an extra 8 years. You just have to suck it up from here on out.
