    I buy the 72 packs and I remember the last time I bought a few boxes, they were $1.25 @ bat
    That's $90 a case, shipped...

    I go to order a few cases today and they are $126. That's a $.50 increase per battery.

    How long ago did this happen?

    Getting more name recognition beyond just the small circles they started with and figured they could up the prices?

    I heard about the price increase - think it was the first of the year.
