Non-rechargeables are just not good money sense any more, regardless of cost.

I woz gonna purchase these last night when i recieved the email from the 7dayshop
Now, thought about it, bit i tend to use rechargable batts all the time, and only time i use the normal ones is in Clocks and remotes etc
SO, goto the pound shop in your local high street and pick up a pack of 16-24 for a QUID.
Do the maths. if anyone is gonna use batts all the time, BUY RECHARGABLE ONES...
Just my 2 pence worth :whistling:

Why is it irrelevant?

The remaining reason argued for NOT using rechargeable batteries all the time now no longer exists, and you can use them in almost ALL equipment, they remain charged for LONG periods, just like an alkaline battery, so you can just get them out, and use them - and per use, they cost a TINY amount, saving something like 35p of the cost of each of the batteries in this "deal" without a single drawback.

I save many tens of pounds, maybe hundreds a year on all sorts of gear - now to me that is ENORMOUSLY relevant. It also saves huge amounts of landfill and polluting chemicals into the environment, and even that is ENORMOUSLY relevant.

Not everyone has been aware of the changes to battery technology, and they remain ignorant to the fact that the new technology rechargeables are now at least as good as Alkaline batteries, maybe BETTER, affordable to buy, with inexpensive outlay for a very basic charger being enough - PLUS they save a fortune in a very short "return" period! That is pretty relevant too.

You know, rather than spending this sort of amount of this deal, it is probably possible to buy enough new-tech rechargeables, say 2 sets of 4, and a charger for near enough the outlay on the batteries in this one deal alone, and not have to buy any more for YEARS! Certainly not a lot more cost, anyway!

I only wish I could think of a few more things so relevant to saving the sort of money it saves me now!

Yer but all i buy the non-rechargable batterys for is umm remotes... thats about it the rest can have rechargable (im not getting into the debate) just stating i dont care about a slightly better performance... i would rather walk into the shop and get 16 alot more then enough as i dont use them often,

Well you are incorrect, the new Eneloop and other low self-discharge NiMH batteries do not correct the fundamental issue that affects some appliances; the fact that they have an open circuit voltage of around 1.2v compared to the 1.5v of zinc chloride or alkaline primary cells.

its irrelevant as its a topic about these batteries not a topic about which batteries represent best value for money in a given application.

'Everyone' knows rechargeables are cheaper after a few cycles so to tell people something they already know is unneccessary.

go to poundland to get batteries for remotes then why waste money on duracells at all?

dataload - you got 100 duracell ultra for 9.99? if not then its irrelvant to this topic.

mikerj - I rememeber my minidisc used to say not to use rechargables and to use 1.5Vs also.

"irrelevant" and no not duracell ultra but i got 60 more batteries for less money and they probably last just as long.

I got some of these recently for same deal, they have expiry date 2015 on them. The cardboard box they came in was all broken inside the jiffy bag but none had come out of the bag. I bought some Kodak £1 for 10 or 12 from Pound shop and tried them in the LED Christmas lights, didn't last anywhere near as long as Duracell's which didn't need replacing either.

This is incorrect. The voltage of fresh NiMH cells is indeed lower than alkaline, however Alkaline start at something like 1.5v and drop down fairly rapidly.
NiMH begin at 1.3-1.4 and drop slower around 1.2v, so you actually get more time around 1.2v from nimh.

There really isn't much difference between these and any other alkaline batteries - maybe 25% longer life and a couple of years extra shelf life. Has anyone actually received these so they can say what the shelf life is? (There is a good chance they are older stock and won't have that long a guaranteed life anyway)

Personally I don't think 37p per battery is that good, you can often pick up alkalines for well under 20p each at supermarkets in smaller quantities, so voting cold.

This is a bargin for anyone that gets through a lot of disposible batteries or anyone looking to prepare for a power outage. While they don't have the shelf life or energy density of lithium batteries, they're a damn sight cheaper on a per unit basis and generally do the job as well (if not better) than any high-end alkaline battery.

I get through a lot of disposible batteries because I usually end up having to change them in my camera during concerts. I don't want to use rechargables because although the camera is tethered to me, the batteries aren't. It's not uncommon for them to be knocked out of my hand while I'm taking the old ones out and/or putting the new ones in. I don't want to be losing £2 worth of lithium or £2-4 of rechargables, I'd rather be losing 80p of disposibles.

I recommend keeping a stock of batteries at home in a cupboard along with some battery powered lighting. A bad power outage and you're going to be without lights at night for who-know-how-long? If it's due to a storm, that's one of the worst times to be without lighting.

Wandering briefly off topic, I'd suggest keeping some tinned food and water at home (because if the power's out and it's a BAD storm, Asda isn't going to be open and chances are you're going to be without clean drinking water for a while). It'll cost you £5 and will last you a year or so and you can eat/drink it when you replace it a year later. But back to the deal, heat and rep added.

yep, I agree as there's 2 completely different things to look at here and this is quite a wide margin. This is hot if you compare like for like but value for money (VFM) nowhere near. Personally I'd vote cold as why spend £15 on 40 batteries when you could spend £15 on rechargeables and get 100's times more use? :?

it would be good if Hot Deals changed the voting slightly as you'd see 2 different scores for this post , one price comparison and another for VFM :-D

if you voted cold then how can you agree?
The criteria for being a hot deal is if its the cheapest for the product not if its apparent value for money.
post a cheaper deal and then you can vote it cold
else how can anyone ever post a deal other than a single type of rechargable batteries or a single tv?
cheapest price is fact, VFM is opinion.

I'm pretty certain those won't have been the Duracell ULTRA M3's, these have a blue band around them, unlike the plain old ones which are just copper and black.

There's a huge difference in price and battery life.

EDIT: Also, the debate about rechargables is pointless! I used to go through as many rechargable as I did disposables. They get lost, damaged, lose charge much sooner than stated. Are inconvenient, even lose charge over time even when not in use.

I agreed as it's irrelevant as most should know that rechargables offer better VFM over time, the same goes for energy efficient light bulbs I suppose. I said I'd vote cold, not voted, as I think it's too harsh to vote cold as it is still a good price

this site voting system is apparently about VFM from what I've seen posted by members including moderators etc so if I had to vote then as I said it would be cold as it's simply not VFM as there are batteries out there that work out far better VFM and that outweighs the price IMO

cheapest price is fact, VFM is opinion.


that's my whole point, ideally the system needs 2 votes :thumbsup: as people currently vote using different factors. Some use cheapest price, some use VFM or some use both cheapest price & VFM. That's where the problem lies

if I post a £10,000 TV for for the cheapest price of £8,000 do you think it would get the same amount of HOT votes as a £1,000 TV for the cheapest price of £800? same price reduction of 20% on both TV's but the VFM factor is completely different for most people but some will use the VFM to vote rather than the 20% saving and the fact it's the cheapest price for that product

Can you get these cheaper,if not then it must be hot!
Stop driving people away from posting deals and just stick to the point of is this the cheapest deal for this product or not!
I will now go back to lurking as you can`t please some people!

I didint realise there was an SLR that took Pencil batteries?

As a photographer these are good batteries, but not really that great for your Flash unit's.... you would be MAD to be buying these amounts of Batteries for your flash unit.

And rechargeables, not that great.

Great for you pocket cameras and for the Kids toys... Voted HOT from me.
