This deal works out a lot cheaper than buying 2 x £4.98 packs of 4 - as you get 12 batteries for the same price. Free delivery until close of play Sunday, and don't forget Quidco.

These extra-high capacity nickel metal hydride rechargeable batteries offer amazing value for money. Up to 1,000 charge/discharge cycles can be expected and a single charge outlasts most standard alkaline batteries. This makes these the ideal choice for todays battery-hungry digital devices such as digital cameras, MP3 players, hand-held games etc.

Value pack of 12 x AAA 1000mAh batteries £9.99 (Code - L29BJ)

Nice find...

You'd be better off with the 8 pack 2500 batteries for £9.99 if you want to use them with high capacity devices .
1 Like #4
2500 would be AA
#5
NIiiiiceeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!

If only they were AA batteries tho, perfect for the wii!! ;)
#6
Check again folks these are AA so not so hot deal

Ignore me they appear to be aaa if you scroll down at least I didn't vote!
#7
No , It is AAA and 1000mah for AAA is ok. (it would not be so good for AA)
#8
I purchased a pack of these to replace my 550mAh batteries in my cordless telephones. After only 2 months use they are worse than the 550mAh batteries that had been in use for 3 years. They are cheap and poor quality. Voted cold as there are better batteries availbale for not much more money. Duracell rechargeables batteries are about £6 for 4 and are a far better investment.
#9
Go for the 12 x 2000mAh ones for the same price!
Oops they are AA...
#10
I don't know about the quality of these batteries, but have been very happy with "vapextech", which are sold by the ebay seller of the same name.

They sell 850mAh "hybrio" type AAA for £5 delivered (for 4), or regular 1100mAh for £8 delivered (for 8).
The hybrio type are fantastic, as has been discussed here before.

I think there are plenty of cheaper batteries out there, but these are the very best rechargeable's that I have had, so I will keep getting these for now!
(Uniross have not impressed me, but my old Panasonics are going very well.)

I bought 2 packs of 4 of these batteries last night, hrand total of almost a tenner. Anyone know how i can cancel those and buy this instead?
#12
Re: Duracell = better quality?

I disagree. After I'd splurged out on a half decent 15min charger, I thought I would invest in some quality rechargables - 1000mah Duracell (can't remember, as it was while back, but I think I paid over £20 for 8). After about only a dozen charges, 2 of the 8 no longer held their charge.

I know that quick charge will shorten battery life, but please don't assume Duracell are top of their game - my experience shows they're not.

I've learned from my mistake - for a tenner, I'm going to grab a handful of these


Good find - heat added

Quite a good deal.
It's free delivery until 9am Tuesday by the way. :)

Actually 1000mAh Capacity is pretty poor for ANY sized NiMH Rechargeable Batteries !! :roll:

Voted COLD !!

Voted cold because maplin staff are the most patronising people I have ever had the displeasure of dealing with.

Totally agree with every word you say. I have been using Vapextech batteries(AA&AAA) for years and they are simply brilliant especially as I use a 15 minute charger.

I'm not assuming, I have been using Duracell's for a while and not had a problem with them. I will probably will be buying more duracells to replace the maplin batteries in my phones. I will also have a look at the hybrio's.
#18
Beware of using them in battery slots. I bought the AA size of this brand for my camera and need tweezers to forcefully remove them as they were slightly fatter that normal AAs

Lol I get very sensitive ;o)

Yes I think it's a great deal too....need loads of these for my bike as unlike the utter morons I see everyday who ride in the pitch black without lights/reflectors of expensive high vis clothing....I have two high beam lights on the front of my bike and three on the back ..... so I use a lot of aaa batteries.

As for the chump that claimed 1000mAh was poor - doesn't the title disprove his argument- EXTRA HIGH CAPACITY! lol ...plonker!

I'd second that. Have bought Vapex batteries and they are great!

Our Lidl were selling 4x AA or 4xAAA Tronic NiMH for £1.99 not so long ago..they were fine.

Gadget show featured Uniross as their best rechargeable batteries...

I also found them difficult to get in my phone, they must be slightly larger than other brands.

Spending £10 on poor quality batteries that will last 2 months is a dumb reason? but then they are cheap so it must be a good deal, my mistake.

That's a rather ignorant post for several reasons:

1. Only ONE person said that the batteries last a couple on months. I doubt Maplin would bother selling them if this was the case, as they would get sick and tired of the returns.

2. Even if ONE person did have a bad experience, ALL MANUFACTURERS ship the odd duff product - so someone will always have a story about a duff Sony / Panasonic / Pioneer unit.

3. If the batteries really are cr*p, then we'll just send them back for a refund.

4. Funny how ONE joker keeps trying to expire this thread even though its still available.

Draw your own conclusions.....

PS Notice how the 'clever' comments are always made by n0obs with just a few posts? (generally all being negative comments)

No you haven't - get rid of the charger and with quatites like this you can afford to charge your batteries properly over a 10 - 14 hour period. They will thank your with years of trouble free operation ;-)

I suspect the batteries were not charging properly because the phone was designed for batteries half the capacity. Now I am fussy with batteries but I got me some so personally I think this deal is hot! ;-)

Hmmm spooky. I was in Maplins last week returning a faulty hard disk enclosure, I was surprised they had four guys dealing with returns and I still had to queue - Must have been a bad day :thinking:

yep you are right, I regularily visit Maplin and have yet to see anyone returning something!

There seems to be a lot of experts out there, but can anyone explain what is better. A high mAh or a low mAh please?

dr_aj,

The higher the ampage, the longer the batteries will last before being drained.

So, 1000mAh batteries will last longer than say 700mAH.

General rule is to buy the highest ampage for the battery size that you can.

maybe, but they did work ok for a couple of months so it appears they did charge. I will try them in my standalone charger to see if they work any better.

Seeing as I'm the only person who has posted that actually owns these batteries then I am speaking from experience. Obviously you have more posts than me so you must be the fountain of knowledge and my opinon is obviously worthless, and no I have 'NOT' tried to expire the thread, so you obviously aren't very good at drawing conclusions. Grow up, don't take offense when someone votes your deal cold.
