    Sometimes it's good to have an emergency supply. Outages and all. And these are ready when your rechargeables are committed to other devices. I usually keep a small supply of alkalines for these reasons, but not a huge pack like this.

    Remote controls and clocks (though personally I don't need THAT many cells), both of which pretty much run for the shelf life of a cell so you either have $0.28 tied up per cell or over 4X as much per cell with decent LSD rechargeables that you still have to recharge every couple years at a minimum (many such devices do not fully drain cells before they stop functioning).

    ... then add at least $35 for a decent charger because everyone knows that if you use rechargables a lot you are obligated to follow internet advice and buy a good charger.

    One concern I have when I see 3rd party sites offering discounted cells is expiration date but they claim it is 2024 so these are probably factory surplus, -OR- gray market cells that didn't pass QC.

    Unfortunately you won't know which until you try them. I tend to believe it's the former because major manufacturers don't like to taint their name by letting questionable cells into the market.
