Buy, use and throw away. What a disaster.
New technology rechargeables are listed on Hot Deals.
Use, use and use again.
Must be better, for wallet and the earth !
No, I am not preaching, it should be a "No Brainer."

You can see it, I can see it and so can many others, but you will still find many argue against you, and disposable batteries are posted on here more than any other thing I can think of, despite now being about the most obsolete item I can think of that is still sold!

I think you will find it's a matter for personal preference. I've got plenty of C & D size rechargeables in all my kid's large toys, but when it comes to AA & AAA I really don't give a toss if I'm not optimising financial or environmental efficiency. There's just too many of them in too many different things in my house to bother about. I don't want to have to wait until my batteries recharge before I get things back up and running, and I don't want to have to manage a cumbersome stock of advance-recharged AAAs. I just want to chuck the old ones and stick in some high power ready replacements.
Given that people will always be willing to pay for convenience then I doubt single use batteries will become obsolete for a long time yet.

Well in which case, it is odd that you would even bother coming on this site, and not just buy the first thing that comes along.

I understand perfectly for those that don't know, but to actively come on here and spend time and read the efforts of others to then opt for the least financially and environmentally appropriate (and in this case, with new technology rechargeables it even involve less physical effort than having to repeatedly buy disposables!) is perverse, no, just plain bizarre!

Strange attitude nihcaj. Is this not where someone who wants a product comes in an attempt to find the cheapest place to obtain it? This is about hot deals, not thrift. Get down off your high horse!

These actually charge up quite well providing your in the same room when they are being charged.

Yes, it is about getting something cheaper.
I always thought that was being thrifty.

If making personal comments is the only argument you can make, what better confirmation of what I say.

Not on a high horse - I don't give a monkey's if you are determined to pay more and make more effort to pay more for something in the process - be my guest, but don't kid yourself there is any sense to it. Now that's strange.

So if someone buys an unprecedentedly cheap brand new Porsche, is that thrift? No, it's a hot deal for those who wish to buy a Porsche.
I've seen some of your other posts nihcaj. You're a serial high horser.

Good deal thanks for taking the time to post it. Please ignore the negative comments, without people posting these deals there would be no site. In relation to this item it is a good deal, rechargable batteries surely cost more in electricity to charge them up, don't they ?
#16
As the other person said they can be recharged. I have an evercharge charger which does recharge "normal" batteries a few times. I have lots of rechargeables but many more toys etc.

Depends where you are going to use your batteries. I use rechargeable all the time, but when it comes to scuba, I will only use alkalines instead, especially on holiday.

Different batteries for different hardware in different scenarios. Eneloops and other hybrids are certainly not the holy grail, and I think the less zealous among us realise that.

To blithely disregard the benefits of alkalines is equally hypocritical as wasting energy typing on your computer to argue about it.

Hot deal.

I don't think they are the Holy Grail, but they are at least the Ark of the Covenant. :whistling:

So few benefits of disposables over Low Self Discharge mean that it's nearly there. Perhaps if they had a little more capacity, then they would beat disposables in ALL circumstances, then that would be up there with the Holy Grail.

For sheer power, the highest capacity standard rechargeables win, but have the drawback of losing charge for other situations, so you need freshly charged, and that does have it's drawbacks.

LSD ones = nominally less capacity, but with the most basic of forward planning beat disposables into the ground. That planning consists of : recharged ones out of the kit, into the charger, previously charged ons into the kit. Remove the newly charged ones from the charger when ready and into the drawer, forget them.
This is where it fails for a tiny proportion of people - It seems this is the most difficult thing in the world to achieve for a few people, despite being far more simple and takes less time than making a cup of tea, which oddly enough most people manage to do without so much as a tiny bleat!

Unless you are miles from electricity, even on a holiday I see no way that a small charger and a set of rechargeables + spare set would be more convenient, as it means carrying more! For a week on holiday, if you use a set of 4 a day, then 8 cells plus small charger beats carrying 28 cells. Financially a lot of saving too - as the alternative to carrying them, buying buy them when you are there to save carrying, then odds on you will not be buying disposables at a good price, so the cost is even greater that buying them before you go.

If I turned off my PC after everything I used it for, and it was off for many hours during the day, after that, then I would be using a little more power, costing a tiny amount. However, it's not even that much, as my PC needs to be on for other things, so the extra power I am using now for the minuted or so I type this is so small, I wouldn't even waste my physical energy to measure it.

If you can't see that, that's probably explains why you can't see the benefit of rechargeable batteries!
