Performance is not very good compared to alkaline, but they are the best Zinc-Carbon I have tested.

Conclusion

This chemistry has about 1/3 the energy of alkaline and cannot handle a heavy load. Even unloaded it has much shorter lifetime than alkaline.
I do not see any reason to use this chemistry anymore
