I have noticed that after 2013 the Duracell batteries cannot be trusted even in a flashlight,
of course that's when you really need it.

I literally have checked all my devices that had Duracell batteries in it without any problems and a week later, I would have battery leakage.
I have seen batteries leak in a new package, unopened, with a few years to go before expiration.
Needless to say Energizer is no better.
 And of course I'm speaking about alkaline batteries in general.

I've been buying the Rayovac alkaline batteries from big lots at less than half the price most of the time and have not had any leakage issues yet.
Just my two cents.
