Despite common wisdom, Ikea batteries are not low-quality. They were £1.99 a pack for quite a while, current price is 99p for 10. Absolute bargain.

Do you want to post anything to back up your claim that they're low-quality?

Ikea batteries are actually made by DEKA: http://www.dekabatteries.com/

They're a respected battery OEM based in the USA.

I use these batteries and have done for a while
Yes, they are of a lower quality compare to duracell etc
But, they are still great value for money

they may be made by whomever but in my experience there poor. I haven't had batt leak in years till some of these went in a toy at xmas time, so that precludes using them in a RCU or other low drain environment. When used in my old fuji S902 I get around half the actuation's that CostCo own brand (Kirkland Sig) give me.

Cold. Similar quality batt are ALWAYS 10 for a quid in poundland etc.

Not for Alkaline ones.

I've never had a problem with IKEA batteries. I use them in a variety of devices from torches to a GPS. Life span is comparable to other alkaline batteries and only marginally behind Duracell but at a fraction of the price.

Nope!

The great thing about these batteries is that it only costs 10p per battery to put into low drainage devices such as clocks and tv remote controls. I renewed the batteries in five clocks and two remotes with a packet of these and they all lasted a couple of years. Stupid to put expensive batteries in such devices. And iirc, they were beside the little alarm clocks in the Ikea shop when I bought them.

Therefore, they are a GREAT buy. Nobody is suggesting one should use them for high drainage devices.
