Is there such a thing?
What actual battery life is expected from a top tier energizer/Duracell for continuous usage?

I stocked up on Energizer lithium AAs for my gear.  Twenty year shelf life minimum and they don't leak like alkalines.  I figured shelf life was more important than run time, although I think there won't be an issue with run time anyway.

Energizer lithium

I run 18-24 hours TT a week with nods on.
About 2/3 out of the year.

I go through about 2-3 batteries a year.

I’ve never tested run times. As I’m driving and walking in fields 10-45 minute intervals.

But they are impressive on battery life.

Energizer or Duracell AA Lithium.  They don’t leak… and if they can I’ve never seen it or heard of it.

It’s a $2000+ device; paying $2-4 for a battery that lasts like 40+ hours and won’t leak is a no brainer even for the cheapest of cheapskates.  Replacing a PVS battery housing is a couple hundred bucks.

I spent the extra money on the Energizer lithium batteries for my PVS-21 to avoid the leakage. Compared to the cost of the goggles, it’s a no brainer.

I’ve read that the Energizer Max brand is guaranteed to not leak. I’ve had too many Duracell batteries leak in different devices that I’m moving my supply of batteries over to Energizer.
