B&Q 18 for £5.98

This works out at about 35p per battery, which is fairly standard.

If you can find the Boots 3 for 2 deal posted here recently, these work out at about 25p per battery.

Cold, I'm afraid...

Boots deal was £7.58 for 24, which is about 31.5p each
Amazon deal is £6.98 for 20, which is about 34.5p each

stop!! just buy a decent spec charger and rechargeable batteries youll save pounds in the long run :-)
#11
Why do people not buy regargables they work out much cheaper ! These are not even that cheap. Should be banned !
#12
purchased 2 packs of 8 AA energizer ultra+ batteries for £5 at my local asda yesterday. 31 pence each. Not sure if they last longer than duracell plus batteries
#13
Rechargeables are no good if you require 1.5v per battery. Rechargeables are only 1.2v per battery.
#14
Bearing in mind you can buy a battery charger and batteries or about the same money, that will effectively last 25 times longer than this deal, its cold I'm afraid.
#15
12 pack for £3.99 at Home Bargains.
I have a battery genie which charges non rechargeable batteries. Saves loads of money.

I don't like the attached tags....i wouldn't want this for christmas, rechargeable batteries all the way

How much does it cost in electricity to re-charge a rechargeable battery?

Genuine question....just wondered if that ever gets factored in when people say "buy rechargeables, it's cheaper".

Heheh, I think that went over everyones head...very funny :)
#19
It's all about initial outlay too. A pack of 4 rechargeables seems to cost approx. £5-6. Now say the average household has 3 remotes (6 batteries), 2-3 clocks (3-6 batteries), a couple of kids with various toys (4-10 batteries). That's a good £20 in batteries before you have even charged the blighters. Then of course you have the fact that they run out and need to be recharged so what do you use in the meantime? Another £6 set of batteries? Or maybe you have some ordianary batteries for backup.................

In which case you should be voting on whether this deal for those ordinary batteries is a good deal.

This post is a bit tongue in cheek but does have a semi-serious undertone. The firgues I guessed at were extremely conservative and when I mentally count up the batteries I have in my own clocks, remotes, mice, torch, etc, it becomes quite staggering what the initial outlay could actually be and even if spread over time should still be costed into a planned switchover.

Rechargeables are no good if you require 1.5v per battery. Rechargeables are only 1.2v per battery.

But you don't require 1.5v per battery - your battery powered devices can cope just fine with rechargeable cells :?

Because rechargeables are *****. They last for about 6 minutes in any kind of electrical appliance, they then take 409 hours to charge.

Rechargeable batteries are good if you are

Have you tried a toy car that requires 4 x 1.5v (6v total)
I tried 4 x rechargeables 4 x 1.2v (4.8v total) and it did not work.

Yes you are correct, only 1.2v. That said I've only ever found one thing they don't work correctly in and that's my front bike light (Xenon bulb and LEDS, the LEDS work but the Xenon doesn't)

They do however work correctly in all my daughters electronic toys (Barbie horses, Handheld computers, etc), Remote controls, pockets radios, LED Torches, Clocks.
I put one of those ALDI deal power meters onto the recharger and it barely registered a charge; they trickle charge, so I doubt they cost very much at all to run. Add to that the fact that one isn't land filling a load of heavy metals and it's Rechargeables all the way for me.

I am a mental hippy!!! The rechargeable batteries I use last LONGER than regular batteries and work out less than 1p per battery based on expected life.

Pretty carp (misprint) toy that was then. Rechargeables have lower internal resistance than disposable cells, so when you draw a lot of current from them the voltage falls less. Hence the 1.5V vs 1.2V is less pronounced than you might think.

I was pleased to see on the original description does talk about clocks and remote controls - the only sort of things you should be using disposables in nowadays. And as has been mentioned, hybrid batteries (Hybrio, Eneloop) are making inroads there too.

Anyone who uses disposables in high-drain applications needs their head examined.

And the cost of recharging rechargeables is minuscule.
#29
ive been using duracells in a set of wireless mics i use for work. Normally get around 6 hours continues use from two batterys.
It says in the instructions only to use alkaline batterys which the duracells are.
what type (if any) of rechargables can i used instead?
#30
It might mean alkalines as opposed to zinc carbon (cheap and nasty) non-rechargeables.

Just try NiMH rechargeables. They won't break the mic if they're unsuitable; they might make any low battery indicator come on prematurely though.

Thanks for gving me a good laugh. Like the humour mate!!

BTW - Voted hot because, as a deal for what they are, which is what we should ALL be voting on (not what we prefer to use, it is very good. Unfortunately some people on here get into all kind of political/moral arguments and forget the point of the site....:whistling:

Stick a fifth battery in.
You might need a bit of gaffer tape and some wiring. Possibly a Stanley knife.

A mental...? I would love to meet who ever taught you English it's probably the same cretin you are getting the information from about rechargable batteries.

Yes, which in many cases is purely a waste of money compared to the cost of rechargeables - hence not a good deal.

And exactly how much better are they than own-brand alkalines where you are not paying for the TV advertising?
#35
On my CV, under "hobbies and interests" I've got "watching gullible idiots fall over themselves at DanJackson's posts on hotukdeals.com" :-D



Tis a delight to see you're still winding them up, bud. :thumbsup:

Just returned from Costco and they got buy 2 packs of Duracell and get 33% off. So 36Duracell batteries comes in at £7.07. Just for info.
#37
Can we just compare like-for-like?. Rechargeables have a place (digital cameras for example) but for everyday use, the are pointless and expensive.
If I had to buy Rechargeables for every toy my kids have in the house I would spend £100's !!
This deal is about Duracell batteries so can everyone stop talking about rechargeables! If you want a thread on them, go and find a good deal and start a new thread!:x

A fair deal but not hot.

We are not debating the value of buying a product, or not, on this site, unless I am very much mistaken. The purpose of HUKD is to highlight low prices on items, and as such, this fulfils that criteria - Is it a good price for this item? Yes, it is, simple as that.

Your voting should be done purely on that basis, not on the ground of conscientious objection, 'green' motivations, or anything else for that matter. Take for example the endless Blu Ray v HD-DVD debates that used to take place on here, completely sidetracking the actual purpose of the thread itself, which was to highlight a 'Hot Deal' (the site name is a bit of a giveaway really). Not to mention the Fanboy debates about PS3 v X Box every time a game deal is posted. Its tiresome, and this thread has turned that way. Nobody was asked to express a preference for rechargeables over alkalines, yet it turned into precisely that debate. Everybody has preferences for items, and has their own moral/ethical beliefs - This, in my humble opinion obviously, is not the place to debate them.

I stand by my original response, and the fact I voted it hot. Its is a good deal, and the sidetrack arguments on here do not make it any less so.

Couldn't agree more - Well said. See my post above to the same effect - This post has turned into a green ethics pressure group, completely missing the point of the post and this site.

Lets give it a break now folks, please. :)
