Yes a good deal if you want to dump dead batteries all over our land ...for £5 more you can get a charger and 4 batteries that can be charged more than a 1000 times...and it saves waste and is a far more efficient way of powering our modern toys...I rest my case

My fully rechargeable nimh 2300 would probably last as long as 10 of these batteries and they cost less than a quarter.
#3
20 x Duracell Procell's (Industry strength) = £5.16

Been using them for months and wouldnt use anything else. My camera is power-hungry and 2 batteries can easily last a holiday trip for me.

Unless the toy requires 1.5V per AA, rechargeable batteries only provide 1.2V which has left me on the hunt for good deals on alkaline batteries.

I'm sure that the 1.2V makes no difference and they work perfectly well in any thing that requires AA batteries.....they work in everything I have and that includes a whole host of items including cameras and mini disc players.

That may be the case for you, but that doesn't mean it's the case for everyone - I'm sure you've heard of Lego? The motors are particularly sensitive to voltage, with rechargeable batteries it's only getting 7.2v instead of 9v which means the motors won't run at full speed even on a full charge and the dropoff rate means the power to the motors is reduced shortly after. When you're trying to get the motors synchronised (the original mindstorms kit only used standard motors) it's virtually impossible with rechargeable batteries.

Hey mate... The Procell's a linked to are 1.5V ;) Number on the batteries are: "MN1500 LR6 1.5V"

Yes, inc. delivery it's 91p more expensive than Amazon, but:

1) These are FAR superior batteries
2) Amazon has a postage too in case you forgot ;) (Unless total order >£15)

He was talking about rechargeable batteries not the Procell's.

Also if you are only using 1 or 2 rechargeable batteries then normally you can get away with the lower voltage. If using more than that then you would loose too many volts!

I take your point...I've never had a device that uses more than 4 x AAs so can always use rechargeables.

Well, that depends on the application.
The voltage is (in the vast majority of applications) not the critical factor. Provided the required current can be delivered, the slight drop in voltage with 1.2V cells is not usually significant. Indeed, modern Ni-MH cells are usually better than standard alkalines at delivering high bursts of current (i.e. in applications such as digital cameras they usually perform better).

I stand corrected! Thanks BigAde for the info - eother way its hit-or/and-miss!
#13
Personally, I use both Ni-MH and disposable alkalines... depending on the purpose.

A short while back WH Smiths were selling off packs of 24 Fujitsu alkalines for 99p... so I got several packs :-D I use these in the kids toys and other places where I wouldn't use Ni-MH for safety reasons... Ni-MH cells can, if shorted, get very very hot or even explode. I've never had it happen to me, but just in case, I keep them away from the kids stuff.
For everything else, I use my 2100mAh Ni-MH rechargeables, which are just great.
