Testing Batteries; Battle of the Dollar Store Giants

1 year ago
Duration 22:30
We test prices at two of Canada's most popular dollar stores to find out if you’re always getting the best deal, and we commission lab tests of pricey batteries vs. dollar store brands.

We tested double-A disposable batteries from different brands and found surprising results about batteries bought at dollar stores. Our investigation reveals which batteries you should buy — and which ones you might want to avoid.

Plus, is shopping at a dollar store always saving you money? We put two of Canada's most popular dollar stores to the test: Dollarama and Dollar Tree.
