    I put 4 of their own cheap AA batteries in my cordless mac mouse and keyboard. Worked fine a few weeks ago. Today both mouse and keybard was full of some corrosive fluid. Batteries leaking. Was an expensive adventure as both mouse and keyboard is no longer working.

    Locals? at their prices it is always full of Locals. Only we (The Foreigner) worry about "Quality" Locals are very much for "Quantity'

    So do members here have any recommendations for buying batteries - especially AA, AAA and button batteries.

    Many I have purchased are useless (in the case of CR2032, I have bought 2 different manufacturer's products from 3 different stores and all are dead or have 'one foot in... ') - of course, returning them, even the same day, is pointless as they will not be replaced once the packet is opened and I cannot test them without opening the packet (Joseph Heller knows all about this!)

    Buying products from CDR King is you get what you pay for, so in general no value for money. Products I do buy there are, mouse, cheap loudspeakers, cooling pad for notebook and external hard drive. First 3 working a couple of years while the last one I am still using since 2014.

    I noticed a serious problem with your headline so offering to fix. Hopefully this fixes things in the future. But its well known what *quality* of stuff is available at CDR king.

    "Avoid CDR king"
