While 1700mAh is not the greatest, it's not bad for the price. Originally selling price was 9.99 although I thought I saw them in Sainsbury's Bude last week for £4.50.

ok for remotes maybe, but something like a camera that would take all 4 batteries - wouldnt last long at all.
#2
A good price this. I get about 2-3 weeks running of my wireless keyboard. These will make a useful backup set.
#3
the ones from sainsburys are 2000mah and retain their charge so a better bet
#4
not heard of this store before? they good?
how much are the ones in sainsbbury?
#5
Blimey you lot are so knowledgable, what is MAH and is it important. I thought these were a good price; I would be using them for my camera.
#6
Would these be suitable for my rechargeable cordless phones at home?
#7
Any good for Wiimotes?
#8
i wouldnt bother with cameras - try something with a higher mAH - at least 2700
7dayshop.com usually have some good sets, and they last ages.

Anything that doesnt constantly need the power - should be ok for these. I use 1600s in my sky remotes and they last months.

mAh stands for milliamp/hours which means 1700mAh will either power something that uses 1 milliamp for 1700 hours or something that uses 1700 milliamps for one hour. The likelihood of any of us mortals powering something that uses only 1 milliamp is completely out of the question (unless you believe what the government say about the Toyota Prius!), therefore most cameras/mp3/remotes/whatever else uses AA batteries should last a normal amount of time under normal usage coditions with (in this case) the added benefit of being able to recharge them.
Hope this helps.:thumbsup:

It does and thanks.

Are these the same sort of technology as Uniross Hybrios? (ie, keep their charge for years) - or are they bog standard NiMH's ?

No they're bog standard - they would be shouting from the rooftops if they weren't.

Exactly the opposite actually - these are no good for (ordinary) remotes because their self-discharge rate means they will go flat in a few months. They're better for high-drain things like cameras.

I'd take the stated capacity with a pinch of salt - it seems to bear little reemblance to reality, and dismissing these for cameras because they're not "2700mAh" is a bit silly.
#13
Are the Sanyo eneloops any good? I need some basically for the lantern and torch I use when night fishing, also my bite alarms or will these be fine.

Thanks
#14
Eneloops (etc!) have no greater capacity; they just self-discharge over many months rather than many weeks. So if you're used to charging batteries up before your fishing expeditions then the extra feature will be wasted on you.

Cheers matey :thumbsup:

I've got the Uniross Hybrios and they are great. Use them in both my wiimotes and every six months when I actually have something to play on the WIi, they are still going strong. (Joke, I love my Wii). I have some Sanyo's in my Panasonic camera and they never seem to last that long. I thought the 7dayshop own brand were reasonable but I have had two die on me recently after only a dozen or so charges.
#17
Just ordered, i'll give these a whirl.

Could someone recommend some 9V and AAA.
#18
If you are not fussy about the make, Aldi has four own brand (Tevion, I think) AA 2300mAh rechargeables for £2.79 if I remember rightly. No idea who makes them. There were plenty in the Brownhills branch at the weekend.

Not a bad price for the Duracell name if you have low drain equipment.
banned#19
1700mAH capacity NiMH rechargables hark back to the age of dinosaurs - especially when used with high-drain equipment. For low drain use, most cheap £2/4-off] rechargables will do. Accept nothing less than 2300mAH for around £3/4 - Fameart, Energiser, UniRoss - so long as they are within £3>4 for 4-off mark. For higher capacities like 2500, 2600 or even 2800, get the cheapo ones. When it comes to rechargables, luck plays a lot. Should a good source be found, stick to it. Of course, [Japanese made] Panasonic & Sanyo are OK but you pay mucho for "jest a little more of the scent".

Don't buy Sony unless they've been discounted drastically A better Japanese "Chsoen Few" will not be found. They play the "fashion" game to the hilt - give the cheapest and "pheramaone-priced" 'em until the donkeys are almost breaking their backs. Why? because you are also carrying [and paying for] the weight of the logo printed on the product. That's why, what others classed as "standard" Sony , costs the Earth.

Those who think that "made by others" fashion branded items are better quality than the stuff crushed during "counterfeit" publicity stunts need not retrieve their brain from the deep freeze. Why? because then, their brain are serving a higher purpose - by not letting them loose upon humanity. The problem with fashion-selling is not what they sell but how they sell it. The former cultivates self-respect whilst the latter removes one's self-respect/valuation. The aim of fashion is to damage through the cultivation of worship and worship is about saviourship/saviours and little else. Especially not about the quality of the product that one is buying. Branding and being branded across one's forehead.

no, not silly. I use a lot of point and shoots, they eat batteries like you wouldnt believe.
If you take a camera out on a day trip maybe.. 1700mah batteries would struggle to even get to the end of the day. Especially with something powerful like a Canon Powershot.
It seems a 'bit silly' to buy batteries that offer almost half the amount of charge, when you can pay a couple of quid more and get 2700/2800mah's
#21
True, IF you believe the capacity figures. But they can be exaggerated to a greater or lesser degree. For instance, the 1700mAh Olympus-branded batteries I got with a camera once were FAR better than the 2100mAh Uniross ones I bought as a spare set.
#22
Plus use 365odw code for furthur 5% off at check out
#23
The bigger the number for the mah the more charge it has if it is a good brand, the longer it will last. I normally got batteries that have more than 2000 mah, the ones under 2000 do not last so long if it is not a good brand.

Before you get to keen you can get some encore batteries (4x2700mah) + charger on the bay for £5

There's no threshold like that - the time they last is directly proportional to the mAh figure "for a good brand" - but what is "a good brand"??

Dead right.
Unfortunately the hot votes are getting like liquid rock - people with no idea voting - proving once more the "value" of excessive heat :-(
#27
They're voting because it's "Duracell" which is a nice big cuddly brand which they recognise. All that TV advertising leaves its mark.

I suspect you are right on the mark there :-(

I have 'AA' 700 mAh NiCd batteries in my cordless phones which need replacing as they no longer hold a charge for long.

Can I just replace them with these 1700 mAh NiMh ones?
#32
sold out....:(
