Do you know of any brands or models of AA and AAA batteries that do not leak in real life.

About 2 years ago, I had a 5,000 rupees electronic device damaged because the AA batteries leaked and damaged the board inside.

Today, when I checked the TV remote, the batteries inside had already started leaking, luckily to catch it one time before the liquid drained into the board.

I have been using only Duracell batteries to avoid such incidents, but sadly they seem to leak too (as experienced in both the above situations; one was ultra model and the other was their regular model)

Despite Duracell's claim of "leak-proof" batteries, my personal experience suggests that even their batteries can still pose a risk of leakage and damage expensive electronic devices.

Do you know of any brands or models of AA and AAA batteries that do not leak in real life.?

My experience with duracell was similar as yours.

I too faced frequently leakages of batteries in remotes primarily.

Solution to it for me was retro cheap batteries of Panasonic (blue,golden). 

And problem solved.

@suman1993 - I lost 15K worth main door smart lock cause of Duracell AA battery leak. I had no issues with Panasonic AA batteries in the same lock. Switched to eneloop pro rechargeable batteries (black) from Amazon and they are working fine since last 3 years. 

Same time, I had bought eneloop AA & AAA rechargeable batteries (white) from Flipkart and they leaked within a year! 

Also, AAA non-chargeable batteries, go for Energizer or Panasonic Evolta.

Tip : No matter which brand batteries you use, do check them time to time 😊

Did you regularly use those devices? For example, is tv remote used daily even if for a few button pushes?

I am surprised Eneloops leaked. I have some Eneloops bought over 10 yrs ago from abroad and they are still going strong.

Yes, the TV remote gets regular use, and even with regular Duracell batteries, they still leaked. The other device, which was used rarely, also had Duracell Ultra batteries leak on it.

Duracell and Phillips alkaline batteries have leaked on me even while being seal-packed for a few months. Sony alkaline batteries haven't leaked even after 2 yrs of unuse. Oddly even the cheap Eveready / Nipoo ones don't leak.

Amazon Basics, which some people claim are rebranded Eneloops haven't leaked so far either. That might be a good choice.
