Rechargeable Batteries and Charger - Any deals around?

£0.00 @
Looking to get a rechargeable battery pack. Went to my local LIDL but they had sold out. Need the rechargeables as my camera seems to eat up normal batteries!

They have the charger as well? I'll be at the Metro Centre this week so will be able to have a look.

These eneloop batteries are amongst the best - cheaper standard NiMH batteries don't hold their charge so well, so if you don't use your camera for a couple of months then the batteries may well be drained when you come back to it. Also, worth getting 4 batteries (assuming your camera takes 2) so that you always have a spare set ready to go, just make sure you have a camera bag that fits a couple of spare AA's in it.

I use these in my Canon A720is and probably get about 300+ photos from a set.

Many thanks for the advice. As mentioned yesterday I'll have a look tomorrow and see if anything is there.

Fair enough, I would seriously recommend not getting the cheapest that you find though, and getting some low self dicharge NiMH batteries (Sanyo Eneloop, Uniross Hybrio or many others, often called ready-to-go). If you intend to have a spare set of batteries to carry around with you, then ordinary rechargeables will lose their charge very quickly (as much as 1% per day!) so if they are sat in your bag for a couple of months then you may well find that they're almost as dead as the ones you're replacing. For the sake of a few quid get some decent ones.
