    What AA batteries do you guys recommend?

    This may sound like a stupid question but can you buy any rechargeable USB station and put AA batteries in whatever they need go in

    I'm not sure exactly what you're asking.
    If you want to know if you can put rechargeable batteries where you normally use regular AA batteries, then yes.
    If you are asking if you can recharge regular AA batteries, then no.

    For example. If you have energizer batteries that you use in your TV remote can you re-charge those in any USB rechargeable hub?

    I don't think regular alkaline AA batteries can be recharged. They need to be rechargeable batteries.

    Never ever try to charge batteries that are not rechargeable.
    Rechargeable batteries always say rechargeable on the batteries and the package.

    Have you used that brand before? I wonder if they last as long as Duracell or Energizer?

    In my opinion Kirkland is every bit as good as the other two .

    I always get those in a bulk package, like 10 or 20 in a package for a bargain price.
    I found that that is the most economic choice when it comes to price and quality ratio.

    Neither have I. I was talking about batteries in general.
    If you must know what brands I do buy, I get those cheaper versions of Duracells, Philips’, Kodaks, Grundigs and soforth. I don’t discriminate. If it is $3 or even less for 12 - 20 batteries, I buy it.

    None of these packs cost me more than $5

    Kirkland is a private label of products made by reputable manufacturer (s), perhaps even Energizer or Duracell

    Found this description in the world's most trustworthy information source, the Internet:-)

    "The general conclusion is that most alkaline cells behave similarly to each other. Kirkland Signature from Costco were the best "supermarket" brand battery we tested in the 200mA test and in the 1000mA test. It appears to be a re-labeled Duracell; the negative end-cap is identical to Duracells."

    So there. I am sure the Costco's store brand "Kirkland" is made by Duracell.

    I recommend Energiser batteries or Energiser Ultra for non rechargeable uses, they seem to last well. Bear in mind that any use that needs a battery at the very top end of it’s performance to work well is better performed by a good throw away battery, Rechargeables never reach the same amount of top end storage as the good disposeables.

    Best rechargeable battery without a doubt is eneloop. Amazon is a good source, Costco has the best prices but doesn't carry them on a regular basis ...
