  • Easy to carry around
  • Decent capacity
  • Rechargeable (batteries and charging unit included)
  • Last long
  • Good for camping


  • Heavy
  • A little expensive
  • Hard to get replacement battery when needed

The AmazonBasics C-Cell battery is a solid option for heavy-use, heavy-duty applications. The battery can be recharged up to 1000 times and it comes pre-charged.

These are good for the following applications:

  • Remote controls
  • Cordless power tools
  • Mobile devices
  • Hand-held flashlights

As with all chargers or batteries, it is always recommended that you monitor the voltage of the battery with a voltmeter.

Amazon claims these will maintain 80% capacity after being charged over 5,000 times and it will not self-discharge at a faster rate than 1% per day.

I like using these myself as a backup for my MacBook and I keep a few of these rechargeable batteries on hand in case my MacBook battery goes dead.
