For things like my laser rangefinder, walkie talkies, cameras and so forth I went to lithium batteries, a bit more expensive than alkaline batteries but worth it. I keep Duracell Alkalines on hand for emergency usage or if one the family young kids needs a battery for a game or something. I did catch a set of Duracell batteries going bad before they had a chance to ruin my GPS unit, that when I switched to lithium batteries.
“Somebody has to speak for these people. Y'all got on this boat for different reasons, but y'all come to the same place. So now I'm asking more of you than I have before. Maybe all. Sure as I know anything, I know this—they will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, ten? They'll swing back to the belief that they can make people...better. And I do not hold to that. So no more runnin'. I aim to misbehave.” Mal Reynolds Serenity/Firefly
