Floridians know the drill: An unexpected storm has knocked out the power and so the search begins for a flashlight. But will it have any juice left to turn it on? Or the air conditioning unit goes down and that battery-powered fan can be the hero of the day – if there are any D cell batteries to be found. And bang that TV remote control on the coffee table is all you want, but what is really needed are two fresh AA batteries.

Despite the lightning fast evolution to powering life’s little luxuries, so much of what makes the world go round still depends on a fresh battery. Do you know where your spare supplies of batteries are? Make sure you’re always prepared by buying these popular battery packs.

Energizer AA Batteries (48 Count), Double A Max Alkaline Battery

Often used for TV remotes and garage door openers, these batteries have a 2-year shelf life. Energizer

You can never have enough AA batteries. They power most remote controls, toys, digital cameras, LED flashlights, garage door openers, wall clocks and more.

Duracell - CopperTop D Alkaline Batteries with recloseable package - long lasting, all-purpose D battery for household and business - Pack of 12

Popular for larger flashlights and some fans, this pack has a 10-year shelf life. Duracell

In earlier times, D cell batteries were the workhorse of the battery family, powering just about every device. These days, they still play an important role with larger flashlights and other hurricane-preparedness items such as fans and small coolers. Trust us: You’re still going to need D batteries on hand.

Energizer AAA Batteries (24 Count), Triple A Max Alkaline Battery

These smaller units have a 10-year shelf life and are often used inside small electronics. Energizer

Like their AA battery relatives, the AAA battery is most often used with remote controls, MP3 players, digital cameras and other small electronics. It’s not like you can choose what battery to run your device, but it’s worth noting – perhaps for trivia purposes only – that both the AA and AAA batteries deliver the same voltage.

Duracell CopperTop 9V Alkaline Batteries | Long Lasting, All-Purpose 9 Volt Battery | 4 Count

Sometimes called transistor batteries, this pack has a 5-year shelf life. Duracell

Once upon a time, 9 volt batteries were the standard power device for most transistor radios. (Actually some battery manufacturers still refer to this model as a “transistor battery.”) These days, they’re the pesky batteries that power your home’s smoke and carbon monoxide detectors – the ones that always seem to die out at 2 in the morning. That’s reason enough to keep an extra pack of these in the closet.

Duracell - Coppertop C Alkaline Batteries with recloseable package - long lasting, all-purpose C battery for household and business - 8 count

These are frequently used in small toys and musical instruments. Duracell

Slightly smaller than a D cell battery – both can trace their history back to the 1920s – the C cell is the go-to power device for many musical instruments, some flashlights and other medium-sized toys.

Energizer CR2032 Batteries, 3V Lithium Coin Cell 2032 Watch Battery, (6 Count)

Popular for miniature devices like fitness trackers, this pack has a 10-year shelf life. Energizer

A 3V battery is designed to be leak-free and perform in extreme temperatures. That’s why it’s ideal for use in small electronics such as calculators, watches, fitness trackers and small toys.
