DURACELL or Energizer battery? why? when it comes to batteries you have plenty of choices... what kind do you use and why?

I found this site the most helpful for you...I usually use Duracell because it is cheap and it lasts a long time
When it comes to batteries, I need batteries which won't fail me, especially during times of electrical outage emergencies. I went through quite a few before discovering which batteries were better.
I've discovered that a good supply of alkaline batteries will serve me much better than my rechargeable batteries. For some reason, rechargeable batteries seem to drain faster, aside from the fact that they don't serve much usage after being drained as, logically, there's no electricity to recharge them again. So I tend to trust storing up on alkaline batteries instead.
Now if I really wanted super batteries, I'm certain there are some on the market which would definitely qualify with higher standards of performance, but at a rather hefty price. Such as the newly developed "plastic batteries" which apparently are one hundred times more powerful than the Alkaline make, but such a product is not yet available within the market industry. So for now, alkaline batteries will have to suffice.
The two brand names of batteries which I trust the most are usually Duracell and Energizer, though sometimes I will use other types such as Ray-O-Vac, Panasonic or Eveready. But their standards of performance of the latter, don't seem to quite match up to Energizer or Duracell.
However, after the narrowing down to what I thought were the better batteries on the market, I often wondered which of the two - that is, Energizer or Duracell - were the better of each other.
Ever so the scientist that I am, I decided to put them to the test to see which ones would supercede in quality, as well as understanding my money's worth. I knew in advance that certain variables had to be taken into consideration in order for the results to be fair and to obtain the best accuracy. Variables such as room temperature for one, as it would seem that the colder the atmosphere, the longer the lifespan of the battery will last. Another variable was the stamped date on the battery packages. Even if the battery hasn't been used, the longer they're openly exposed, the more they drain. Hence, atmospheric pressure does affect the lifespan of a battery.

I did do an experiment with batteries where i placed an energizer batter and a duracel battery hooked up to multiple leds and ran to see which one lasted longer. duracell lasted much longer than energizer

From this site, an amazing claim: http://www.naturalnews.com/PhotoTour_Energizer_Batteries_2.html
"Why are Energizer "D" batteries so weak? To find out the answer, I decided to take one apart and see what was inside. As this picture reveals, inside the "D" battery is a much smaller battery! The Energizer "D" battery is actually just a cheap plastic shell surrounding a much smaller, low-capacity battery similar in size and capacity to an "AA" battery (2500 mAh)."

We tend to purchase and use Energizer batteries -- we've tried to switch mostly to rechargeable batteries, and for whatever reason, Energizers are what we have primarily found ourselves using. There's no objective reason for it, though, we've just gravitated towards that brand and haven't seen a reason to switch.

Is there any room to put Apple batteries in this conversation? Other than that, I like either one, but I try to stay as far away as wireless things as possible, because I don't want to pay to replace them.
