Bulk Batteries??

Can anyone recommend a good source to purchase batteries in bulk?

I don't need to get too many but enough to have spares around. Specifically 'D' size.

Thank you.

I recently saw advertised,
"MAXELL AAA Heavy Duty Batteries 40pk for $6.99"

I have an URL if you want to email me I can send it to you.

I am assuming an email address is allowed here, if not, I'm sorry.

I am not "pimping" just trying to share info.

Walmart, Sam's Club, Costco?

I get mine at Costco. Duracell AA and AAA (for electronic devices) mostly.

From Robot Wisdom the other day: 40 AAA batteries for $7 shipped (Buy.com-DealNews)

Check dealnews.com; they recently had several deals on large (48 ct. or more) packages of batteries.

Not to stray too far off-topic, but have you considered rechargeables? After the initial investment in a charger and a few sets, it's really very handy. We have a bunch of AA and AAA's, and it makes life a lot easier to just pop them in the charger for a few hours instead of slogging sometwhere to buy them.

Specifically 'D' size.

So never mind the '40 AAs' deals. What I've seen in Costco and Sam's is not real cheap in D-size.

Thomas distibuting says there are "No products" on their site in the non-rechargeable alkaline category. A pair of NiMh D-cells costs $32, and then you've got to get a charger. Not a 'bulk' answer, I guess.

ZBatteries.com says you can get 100 Sony alkalines for $78.

I've had great success with batteryspace.com.

Go to your local Batteries Plus and ask for a brick or two of ProCells. They're Duracells re-branded for industrial purposes, and you can buy them for 40-50 cents per cell.
