Keep your gear powered up with this $8 4-pack of rechargeable batteries

Is this deal for me?

This 4-pack of AmazonBasics rechargeable AA batteries (opens in new tab) is on sale for $7.64. These batteries normally sell around $10, and even though they fluctuate a lot in price they've only dropped below $8 once before.

Speaking from personal experience, I have this same pack of four and use them primarily for charging my game controllers (opens in new tab). With these you don't need a big, bulky dock (opens in new tab) sitting next to your TV and you don't have any messy cords like you would with a play-and-charge kit (opens in new tab). Plus, with four of them you will always have a replacement when the batteries get low.

These batteries can be stored for three years and still maintain 65% of their original charge. The 2400mAh capacity means they can provide a lot of juice before needing to be recharged. Plus, it will take hundreds of recharges before you even start to notice a capacity loss.

Amazon users give these batteries 4.4 stars based on 3,771 user reviews (opens in new tab).


  • What makes this deal worth considering? - Well, for one thing, AmazonBasics products are a solid investment for the price. Also, this is one of the lowest prices we've ever seen for these batteries, and they have a lot of great user reviews.
  • Things to know before you buy! - Grab an inexpensive charging bay (opens in new tab) so you can easily keep your batteries topped off for whenever you need them.
