Screwfix's Today Only deal. I haven't used these so don't know how good they are but have good reviews on Amazon who are selling them at £7.27. Varta are a German manufacturer though and I know my car battery is Varta and exactly the same as Bosch.

DON'T BUY VARTA BATTERIES. Of you've bought give back. We use them at work just for a door bell and we charge them longer than we can use them. They are soo bad. We have tons of them.

Interesting. Are they the Stay Charged type? Odd that the Amazon reviews don't match your experience

Thanks. Looks like someone has kindly added it to the title.

Hot ! I've just reserved. Can anybody recommend a good USB battery charger for these AA batteries? I prefer USB rather than a plug in the wall type. thanks

Are you charging them correctly? You might have NiCads. These are Ni-Mh Which, strangely, isn't in the description. Some chargers have selectors for NiCads and Ni-Mhs, or you may have some kind of drain on your doorbell, causing them to discharge.
#17
It's there chargers supplied by them. I think you might be right after reading all this. Must be the doorbell. But it's like a standard rubbish doorbell wireless one. If they work for you then it's cheap.
#18
Thanks, ordered.

Excellent - ordered 2 packs at this price today - will pick up next time I'm passing ScrewFix as they hold them for 3 weeks.
#20
Lendu, Your comment do not buy Varta. These are the ready to use or LSD (Low self discharge) type. So there are Varta batteries and there are Varta batteries. I bet you have normal rechargeable could even be as bad as NiCd ones. Also probably charging them on a dumb simple timed charger maybe. That could explain the poor results you are having.

I like the Lidl ones but they are significantly larger than the disposable equivalents. There are a few devices that won't take the Lidl batteries and so I have a handful of Eneloops as well.

You probably have traditional NiMh batteries. They discharge quickly even when not in use. They're not supposed to be used for things like door bells, remote controls etc.

I have stopped using rechargeable batteries altogether for my doorbell (cheap Chinese one) for a similar reason. I worked out it was because there is no cut-off circuitry in the receiver when the voltage drops below a certain level. This results in one of the cells becoming so discharged that their polarity reverses and actually damages it. NiMH batteries are not supposed to be over-discharged.

I advise you invest in a decent charger that properly manages the charging cycle of batteries such as:

Two questions.
1 Why do you have tons of them if they are just for a Door bell.
2 Why do you have tons of them if they are so bad.

Heat added, was looking to get some Amazon basics or similar but for the price of these I got 2 packs. There is still stock in Hinckley, maple drive for anyone on the lookout.

Don't forget Topcashback on top!

Li-ion AA's (1.5v) are pretty new and about £20 for 4.

Well no; anecdotal data vs a larger amount of anecdotal data.

Voted hot - came here to post myself after bagging the last 2 in Exeter, as I need more of these.

This offer will only end in tears for the buyers! Because these are 1.2v batteries and normal batteries are 1.5v you will forever be charging them for a few minutes use. Most remotes and doorbells will function as they should for over a year on normal AA's. I'll bet the rechargeable batteries are in the bin by then. As for putting them in kids toys? Fine if you can put up with them calling you to recharge them umpteen times a day.
