While not as many electronics run on batteries as they used to, it’s still a good idea to have some on hand for those items you need them for. They’re good to have for an emergency, like a power outage where you’ll need to use a flashlight. When you’re buying these batteries, be sure to go for generic brands. A study by DealNews showed that generic batteries will save you money over name brand varieties. The study found that generic batteries are typically a quarter of the price of name brand ones. So, while name brand batteries do last a little longer than generic, you’re still saving a significant amount by using generic batteries. Stock up on a few boxes of generic batteries and have them ready to go anytime you need to use a battery operated electronic device.
