AAA. AA. C. and D rechargeable batteries from Lidl for £2.92

ibizaibiza

THE SPECS ON THESE WERE GOOD FOR THE PRICE LAST TIME

Rechargeable Ni-MH Batteries

* Choose from 4 x AAA, 4 x AA, 1 x 9V block, 2 x D or 2 x C
* Price per item/pack

AA are 2500mAh
AAA are 900mAh
C are 4000mAh
D none left in the three shops I was in
PP3 200mAh


You should get at least 500 charges out of these, and the cost of charging them is virtually nothing, so comparing to normal batteries you are looking at paying under a penny a charge, counting the electricity and the cost to buy them.

Even the cheapest traditional batteries cost many times more than that - and these will save filling landfills with a shoebox size of dead batteries for each pack you buy.

    to be honest i wont advice you in buying these batteries. They are very quality and last less than a year. They also occasionally leak and will destroy your beloved gadgets! A Negative for me really!

    Not had ANY rechargeables leak up to now, and I have been using them for about 15 years plus - in the days of very low power NiCds! Some are Lidl too.

    I won't recommend Lidl ones due to poor-ish performance of ones I have had there before though, and I am no longer buying any [COLOR=Red]standard[/COLOR] NiMH batteries in any case, (I have a good number already) as the new technology (Hybrio/Recycko/Infinium) type ones are SO much better, and keep their charge far longer, therefore get round many of the complaints that people have when relying on rechargeables. [The only situation where the extra power might benefit, is for high power situations, eg. camera flashes, but this means needing regular charges, or a fast charger, to be sure they will always be avaialable, instead of the advantage of the new type charging on a cheap charger, such as the one Lidl is selling here!]

    I currently buy from http://www.vapextech.co.uk/ these are NOT the ordinary ones, get the NEW TECHNOLOGY green colour ones! Also Panasonics from this deal: http://www.hotukdeals.com/forums/showthread.php?p=4239724#post4239724 They are not as cheap as these, but the benefits are dramatic, and are as convenient as having disposables. The bigger sizes don't seem to be so available in this type though, although some 9v ones DO exist if you look around, and pay a bit more :-(

    Pretty low power for standard NiMH now, if you must use standard ones, (and there is not much argument for this type now) then 2700 to 2900 ones are easy enough to get. The new technology hybrio type ones are this low, but have the benefit of good power retention, which these won't have.

    Ive been using the Lidl and Aldi ones for years and the first AAs I bought in 2007 have just died so 2 years of recharging is a bargain for £2. People that say these leak and die quickly are obviously charging them wrong as ive got about 30 AAs and 20 odd AAAs from Lidl and Aldi and they have never leaked or died within one Year of charging.

    I do accept that there is an element of luck and circumstance - I am no particular fan of branded ones for the reason that they have never performed much different for me, yet some of the best ones I ever had were from 7day shop about 2.5 years ago, and have gone on and on, yet some newer ones form there have failed early!
    I don't use a fast charger, so can't comment on the performance of any type with one!

    When I say failed, I am also referring to individual batteries, generally they fail as odd ones, not in full sets, hence the value in checking them all after charging, and getting rid of the occasional substandard ones that will not take a charge after a couple of attempts as they drive you mad when a set runs flat prematurely due to one low powered one draining the rest!

    don't bother with these **** batteries pay the extra and get some infinity's from vapextech (same as endeloop, hybrios)

    Its a positive vote from me, I've got lots of these over the last few years from Aldi and Lidl, and the early ones are now getting to the point where they need to be replaced. I've never had any problems with quality or lifespan, and I've never had one burst or leak. As stonedste said, that sort of damage is usually caused by inappropriate charging, for example regularly leaving them overnight in a quick charger.

    The prices are going up though, Aldi added a pound on to theirs a while back. Still far cheaper than any others I've found.

    And the post is also good timing, I need some extra AAA's!

    I've had bad batteries from Lidl, and would be very sceptical in buying any batteries of any kind from Lidl.

    I notice they are also doing the intelligent charger. Anyone had any experience with these?

    As the previous poster has said... get some eneloop/hybrio type. You will wonder how you managed with this type!

    Probably a mistake to use a NiCad charger.

    These have certainly gone up in price.
    The packs were £1.99 last year, and I bought a 9V for £1.99.
    Not voting cold but Aldi offer better value.

    Lidl batteries are rubbish. I have bought loads in the past, they leak they discharge far too quick and they're generally best avoided.

    Better to spend your money elsewhere.
