The size (length) of the Battery does not appear to be standard, as it does not fit the charger. It is shorter by about 3 mm, and hence can not be charged. Hence, i had to purchase a new charger suitable for this DURACELL AAA BATTERY, WHICH is not available with Amazon. Hence it is a waste. I expected Amazon to be sensible, check before selling their products. As I had unwrapped the package, and not in a position to return it also. Yes, it is a waste.
