ABC has been a popular brand for batteries in our country. My hubby bought these AA batteries from ABC (though we never bought their products before) because he thought he would give them a try. It’s written ‘New Special 100% EMD, Extra Heavy Duty’, black and silver colored (there is another variant of the blue-colored). It supports 1.5V. It looked pretty convincing actually, because it came with a nice packaging. However, I must admit that these batteries are rather disappointing. I used them for wall clock, and in a month and a half my wall clock started to run out of power. My hubby used them for flashlight, remote control, and other stuffs but no difference, they couldn’t hold until two months. I just don’t understand why they are popular. So now we are back to our regular batteries which are proven long lasting and incredibly work well, and won’t bother purchasing batteries from this brand. It’s such a waste of time and money.
