Kirkland alkaline batteries are made by Duracell. Watch for fake duracells. There are many out there. They do leak!
Tips to identify authentic Duracell Batteries:
- The label on authentic Duracell batteries will not peel off. If the label peels off, you have a counterfeit battery.
- Authentic Duracell batteries have a batch number laser-etched or stamped into the plastic label. It is rough to the touch -- not printed.
- Duracell uses recycled paper in their packaging. If you look at the back of the package, the card-stock should look dull, or similar to a newspaper. If it's bright white, it's suspect.
- Duracell batteries are packed flush to the bottom of the card-stock. You should be able to stand authentic battery packs upright without them falling.
- Duracell states that authentic batteries may be manufactured in Belgium, Germany, China and the United States.
- Other possible signs of counterfeit batteries include spelling errors on the package or poor picture quality.

I agree about the Eneloops. I have (literally) 18 radios that I keep Eneloops in. 12 of those live mostly in their cases in a drawer. I take those out every 6 months or so and cycle the batteries for freshly charged Eneloops.
