On April 11 2020 I purchased 12 packs of AA for $1.33ea & AAA for $1.25ea from Amazon. A couple of weeks ago I checked Amazon & both sizes were $2.50ea so I decided to check at Walmart. Today at Walmart they were $2.75ea so I came home to buy at Amazon. Now at Amazon AA size are over $3.00EA!

Amazon brand lithium batteries have gone way up too. An 12-pack of 9V is $65 when it's even actually in stock.

I noticed the same thing. Luckily, I have a small set of Eneloop rechargeable AAs that I use for my most common AA stuff.

Guess I should invest in even more rechargeables.

I save the expensive lithium primary cells for only stuff that doesn't get used often or for very long. Everything else gets Eneloops.

is demand for lithium higher because of battery electric vehicles (bev)?

Yeah,

Thinking the EV marked increased the demand, the supply is still the same.

Bought a ten pack yesterday for $25!

The cold was killing my regular batteries in my doorbell camera.

Part of the increased demand may be based on fewer people buying Duracells.
Duracell batteries seem to often leak now and people have shifted brand/types.
