Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Hawkman D cell leaking
I have 2 quite expensive 3 cell and 2 cell LED Maglite D cell lights. The 3 cell was ruined due to batteries failing before their time. All batts. were dated Dec. 2017. It is July 2016 and wanted to check my Hurricane lights before our Fl season starts. I caught the 2 cell just as they started to leak. The 3 cell was corroded closed and I had to use a 16lb. sledge to split the alum. casing in half to see what batts. were in it. I have great pics if anyone is interested. The electronic fly swatter was leaking in my hands when I went to kill a wasp and that is what started my whole ordeal. Not to happy Ray O vac.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by George B 3 of 8 have leaked
Right now, I have 8 D cells marked DEC 2014. Admittedly they are beyond date. But the issue is not how long they hold charge. (They were bought back when we had gear that ate D batteries like mad, but is unused now.) Several of them have relatively good charge for their age, but 3 have leaked. One ruined a new LED flashlight it was in along with 2 that stayed OK. After cleaning it up some, I wanted to test and found I had 5 more of the same battery and one had leaked badly and one a bit. I am not very impressed! I can live with batteries dying. I don't expect them to leak in 2016 (or 2014).

we use lots of batteries so we always look for the largest package we can find, shipped to the door is better than driving all over town to find products.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TheFatSkeleton BATTERIES FOR LESS
As mostly every flashlight in the house was not working for dead batteries, this is good cure at a reasonable cost if you do not need them right away. As these batteries sometimes sell for $2 apiece some places, I got them here for under a buck. Also, since I needed a couple of other items, they were shipped to my door for free. They seem to be working fine (I put them in the flashlights and they make a bright light). Now all my flashlights are working, life can be beautiful.
So if you need batteries, but not right away, this is the way to go as they are not stocked in the HD stores.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Bill ONce u order something on line,, impossible to cancel
After ordering this 'only available on line product', I had to wait until they shipped it to the store a week or so later.. But 'returning' the product was no - hastle and they did refund the credit card.
Many reviews here said the batteries leak and ruin equipment, so I picked up some 50 cent alkaline D's on sale at Valu Hardware.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Stanav Leakage rate of 30% within a year.
I bought a 12-pack of these Rayovac D-cell batteries last year. The expiration date shows June 2017. I used 4 of them in a lantern and put the rest away in a closet in a cool and dry location in the garage. Last week when I needed to replace the batteries in the lantern, upon pulling out the 8 batteries left from last year's purchase, I found that 4 of them have leaks. The other 4, while don't leak yet, but they start to show signs of corrosion. So the leakage rate is 30% within a year, and I bet that within 2 year, it's going be at least 60% or more.
If you want to buy these battery, just buy enough so that you can use them right away. Don't buy them in bulk and put them away because they will leak.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by buyscott The only way to buy "D" cell batteries!
When you compare quality and value, this is the most cost effective way to buy "D" cell batteries. Unlike other sources there is no shipping charge for these heavy batteries. Home Depot makes the process simple and easy for store pick-up.
