These D cells flat out rock. You won't be paying for bunny commercials or expensive marketing gimmicks with these batteries. You just get great performance. Ok, so what can you say about D-Cells? Well, in order to evaluate the performance of these batteries, we subjected them to an unscientific, but straight-forward endurance test using a pair of identical single D-Cell LED flashlights, one with the HDX battery and the other with a brand name competitor's alkaline equivalent. I was expecting this test to be over in a day or two. Incredibly, the flashlight test lasted just short of 14 days (see pictures), with both units shutting down late on Day 13. They both shone brightly for 10 days, then slowly faded until they were unable to keep the LEDs lit. Incredibly, the HDX battery was able to "recover" after an hour of sitting idly and re-light both flashlights. The competitor's battery could not light either flashlight following the test and rest period. The clear winner was the HDX D Cell. The performance of the HDX battery was truly impressive. The manufacturer also claims a 10 year shelf life, as well. That's a bit harder to test, but sounds amazing. So when it comes to battery life and ability to deliver power, you can't go wrong with these. With these batteries, you pay for performance, not hype. I highly recommend these.

The first thing that liked about these batteries is that they do NOT come in one of those stupid plastic blister packages that you need a chain saw to get in to. A nice sturdy cardboard flip-open box that can be reused for the remaining batteries as you need them. The manufacturer claims that they have a 10-year shelf life, which would put them on par with any of the top brands. Without a scientific study, these seem to work as well and last as long, so for most applications, you can’t go wrong. Where I seem to have the most problem with batteries is when they have been left in an appliance for a long time and they start to corrode and end up damaging the appliance as well. It is too soon to tell with this brand if that will be a problem, but if it is, I will certainly update this review.

These batteries get the job done. Typically, I shy away from batteries that are not the customary name brand ones that we are all used to buying.
Well, if these are any different from the name brands I certainly don’t see any difference. I tested them in a couple of my larger flash lights and a remote controlled toy truck. The lights were bright and consistent with their output. Time will tell if they last as long, but I see no early indications that they won’t. The remote controlled toy truck eats the name brand batteries (and every battery) for lunch and after several hours these were still running good, so that should save some money in the future for us.
These look to be a good buy to me. I recommend

The HDX D-Cell alkaline batteries have expiration dates, are consistently charged to 1.62V (according to my multi-meter), shrink-wrapped in pairs and come in an easy to recycle cardboard box. I have not had them long enough to get a sense of their longevity. The box makes for handy battery storage and includes a cardboard divider so the batteries don’t touch terminals inside the box.

I have never been disappointed with the HDX brand. I love my HDX shelving and storage totes. Already tried their Alkaline C batteries and they have been working fine. Got the Alkaline D's. They are mercury free and heavy; I find the heavier the battery, the better it lasts. When stored, they are good for 10 years. I have them in my numerous Mr. Beams Motion Security Lights, and so far, they work great.
Wish Home Depot would let us update reviews ... clearly it would be helpful to add how long they lasted and if they leaked.

These are D cell batteries. They aren’t name brand, and the batteries I received looked different than what was initially shown in the product picture. Instead, the batteries I received looked like every HDX item I’ve ever seen: white and orange packaging with black lettering.
I always have my doubts about things that are not name brand, but these cells live up the HDX name. They so far have lasted just as long as the other batteries I have in a flashlight that takes three D cells. They fit perfectly, and they have no visible flaws in the outer layer of the battery, which I’ve seen quite often on super cheap brands you can pick up in warehouse electronic stores.
So far, I’m very happy with these HDX and look forward to the cost savings when purchasing replacements in other sizes.
They are guaranteed ten years, just like the name brand units as well. Plus, it's a pack of twelve, so I won't be running out any time soon!
Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Long-Lasting

Hmm.. They work. They have a 10 year shelf life. They come in a 12-pack and shrink wrapped in pairs. They are regular size D batteries. What else can I say about them to reach the minimum character requirement..? I got these for my lanterns for the last camping trip of the year. The batteries performed well and I had light! Can’t speak on longevity and different environments. They did last about what the lantern is rated for depending on the light setting. No complaints. Another good HDX product.

Good quality alkaline battery. Easy to use and came in good package. Easy to fit into any standard D size battery case. Lasts really long and happy with duration of energy it produces in flash light and toys. It lasts for days of continuous 2-3 hours usage in kids toys. Easy to identify the directions marked + and - o fit in easily in toys and lights.
