Description

These Rayovac Maximum Plus Alkaline Batteries are cosmetically imperfect. So yes, when your friends and family open your remote control, your mp3 player or your child's toys, they're going to get a glimpse of your embarrasing battery blemishes.

100 unpackaged AAA batteries
Cosmetically blemished, but otherwise new and in perfect working order
Alkaline batteries
Approximate ship date of May 01, 2009
Batteries have expiration dates in 2010 - 2013 so they're good for quite some time.
These batteries are new, not recharged and not tested and slightly used or pulled out of some camera. They are new, unused, have plenty of remaining dating, they just have cosmetic blemishes.

    Edit: Added "reclaimed" to the title since these are slightly used or pulled out of a camera.

    Batteries are not reclaimed. They are new. You read it wrong.

    Listing states they will ship on May 1st. This does not mean back-ordered. A few listings we had previously had ship dates of a week. You didn't flag those.

    Seems like pretty clear English to me: "NOT recharged and not tested and slightly used or pulled out of some camera." ...That sounds like a prime example of a "reclaimed" product to me.

    Mods, marking as inaccurate so that "reclaimed" can be placed back into the title. This is an important enough factor to be seen from the front page listings, much as being "refurbished"

    Seriously, no store sells 100 AAA batteries in new condition for such a price.

      If they have be used at some point, even briefly, then by definition they are no longer new.

    You are reading it wrong, Solstice. The "not" in front applies to "recharged", "slightly used", and "pulled out of some cameras". They reassure you at the end with "They are new, unused"

      I looked at the site again, and language of the description has caused a conflict to occur. The two sections of the description contradict each other due to wording. This could have been easy remedied by splitting the secondary statement into two separate sentences, and clarifying the sections in question.

      Neither of us are right or wrong, as its a matter of interpretation here, it will have to be up to each individual buyer to decide which portions of the description will take precedence.

    Judging by the website's description, they are new, but slightly blemished. Will leave it flagged until further review.

    be realistic solstice it says in the listing twice, the batteries are new. It states they are unused.

    You are wrong.

    now he flagged it as innacuarate, nothing described is innacurate. He is wrong. Even Yan has told him he's wrong.

    He's admitted the batteries are a great deal but can't get over his belief that they are used even though it says it twice in the listing that they are new. They have cosmetic blemishes and that is described.

      I never made any comment stating that I perceived this as a "great deal", nor any statement to the contrary. All I've been addressing is the description and plausibility of the deal itself.

      I was commenting on the plausibility of it being new given the price listed, in light of the possibility that they may be reclaimed based on the language. I never stated whether or not I perceived this to be a great deal or not. You chose to extrapolate that from that comment. Honestly given he language I don't know how to perceive this deal.

      If they are indeed new, which I'm not convinced of, then yes.

      If they are indeed reclaimed, which I think is a possibility, then no.

      Better idea... You relax and get some tea. I recommend a nice calming chamomile blend.

    Whatever solstice, you have real trouble admitting when you are wrong. even though it's been pointed out to you by 2 different people.

    Before you flag someones deals make sure you read the listing in it's entirety and if need be, call the company.

    I have absolutely no problem contacting a company to check accuracy as you see I've done a few times.

    We are not the only ones who view these listings. Accuracy is important.

      1. 98% of the populace of Germany voted to give Hitler his chancellery powers, leading to a whole series of nasty events.

      Could they, by some sheer remote chance, be considered as being wrong?

      Numbers alone don't determine right or wrong.

      2. Calling companies directly does not help individual members, the 1-2 times I've done this, the other member has still contested the issue. It's largely futile.

      3. I recall only ever calling a company once or twice directly, and I think both cases were long before you arrived on the Buxr scene.

      4. Precisely.

      Yan - This is Godwin's law! I think Buxr has finally hit it big!

      From wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Godwin%27s_law):
      Godwin's Law (also known as Godwin's Rule of Nazi Analogies)[1] is an informal adage created by Mike Godwin in 1990. The adage states: "As a Usenet discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches 1"

      had never heard of this, but I just recently saw someone making the nazi comparison on a kindle discussion board. That's hilarious! Big Grin

    I just called Greveyard Mall and they claim the batteries are brand new but with "cosmetic blemishes" on them. Another thing - The DO NOT come in factory packaging.

    Based on the premise "innocent unless proven guilty", I will clear the flag

      Now I will acknowledge that I'm wrong. Smile

      The source for this information is unquestionable and of high character. Wink

      It's still effectively on backorder though with a 9-10 day wait. Razz

    Will keep the 'backordered' flag. 8 day wait time may be OK for a custom Dell laptop but is a significant delay for batteries
