I have filed two USPS service requests. USPS says they both have been marked "resolved" but there is not difference in tracking. It says it left my home town 8/4 and that it is arriving late. I filed another request. Left here 8/4 and still not delivered. They did say that by law, they don't owe me anything. Total incompetence from the USPS. I am sorry I didn't use UPS or Fed Ex.
I have been using rechargeable batteries for over 10 years and still have original 9V ones from then that work as long as any alkaline and don't cost a whole penny to recharge. I have AA rechargeable Eneloops, the low self discharge ones, that have provided perfect service. The cost savings have been considerable and I have never had one leak, unlike even new alkaline ones.Besides, rechargeable batteries are never dependable
