You can pick up the same charger but by Energizer with batteries in boots for £9.99 also.

Really good price but I've sort of 'seen the light' with the introduction of the 'hybrid' rechargeables now on the market (Uniross's Hybrio and Sanyo's Eneloop). I can only vouch for the Hybrios but they are superb and, unlike 'conventional rechargeables like these, lose very little charge when left dormant. I used to get very agitated returning to an appliance a couple of weeks after I'd installed a supposedly high-powered rechargeable battery in it, only to find it dead as a dodo and in need of recharging again. Amazon are currently selling a Hybrio charger complete with 2 2100MaH batteries (ready for use immediately) for the princely sum of £2.65. Buy 6 and for £15.90 delivered you have 6 chargers and 12 superb hybrid rechargeable batteries. Just my 2 penny worth.

These encore 2700mAH rechargeable batteries are the best batteries I have ever used. They last at least 16 hours in my wireless 360 controller and charge up overnight.

I'd recommend these to anyone.

How many hours does it take to fully charge these?

Cheers for the information, why are they so cheap compared to these? What's the difference between 2100 and 2700?

Ostensibly, the 2700 should outperform the 2100 by approx 30% in power rating. However, if you are using the battery for an item that you maybe don't use so often (maybe a digicam, for instance), after a couple of weeks or so of inactivity the supposedly high-powered 'ordinary' rechargeable will have lost almost all its charge, whereas the supposedly lower powered Hybrio/Eneloop will have lost approx 5% of its charge. Check on google, there are far more technically-qualified people than me singing the praises of Hybrio/Eneloop batteries. Here's a link to the £2.65 Hybrio charger/2x AA batteries:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Uniross-Hybrio-Charger-2100mAh-Batteries/dp/B000KG5G5S

Here's a link to the (admittedly far more expensive) Eneloop batteries, may be worth reading the 2 user reviews:

AFAIK they are 'normal' chargers. Anyone?

Edit:Buying 6 of the Hybrio chargers with the 2 AA batteries would cost £15.90 delivered from Amazon and a whopping £59.97 from play!

One difference seems to be that the Hybrio "Can recharge up to 500 more times" whereas the ones originally linked to are "Rechargeable up to 1000 Times".

Thanks for the info bellboys, must say that the hybro type battery is a clever idea and very handy for such as remotes etc where ni-mh has its only drawback of drain.
Win win situation as well get to save the entire planet and stop polar ice caps melting AND buy a new toy!! :roll:

one other question before i order
are these the same ones mentioned last week where
a lot of people said the chargers were a fire risk
i'm all for savuibng a few quid

Mine's fine as it switches off once the batteries are full charged. However, even if you don't use the charger that comes with them (these batteries will recharge in ANY recharger unit AFAIK), it still only works out at £1.33 per battery including delivery...

Yes, well spotted :thumbsup: In reality, has anybody actually lived long enough to recharge their batteries 500 times let alone 1000 times? :? :whistling:

I bet someone will have a database of all their rechargable batteries and how many times they have been recharged!!
#16
Eneloops can also be charged up to 1000 times.
#17
Like I hinted at before, I think it's a bit of a moot point. Seriously, anyone on here recharged their batteries more than, say, 100 times?
banned#18
I believe all rechargeable batteries lose their ability to hold their full charge, my Nokia batteries are quoted at having 107% charge? dropping from it's new condition of 112% charge. Work that out, the battery is a month old. I know Lion batteries are a different chemical.
#19
Brilliant, was just after something like this as the batteries in my Wii remote have nearly run out. Only problem is their out of stock at Play, any other retailer sell these at a decent price?

Thanks in advance

You are absolutely correct, the point to consider is how FAST they lose their charge. Both the hybrid batteries I have mentioned (Hybrio and Eneloop) lose just 30% of their charge in 12 months of inactivity. Even the most high-powered 'ordinary' rechargeable would lose ALL power within maybe a month.

According to an Amazon reviewer, this charger is a real slowcoach.

Thanks OP!

Still around.. thanks for the pointer 1parry :)

Still available at play.com but now down to £7.99 delivered. Site quotes next day delivery being 'usual'.

I looked for a charger in town plus 8 x AA batteries. Best I could find was going to cost me £30 and only 2500mah batteries.

Bought two of these chargers via this link which gives me 2 x chargers plus 8 x AA 2700mah batteries for just under £16 plus quidco cashback. 4 x AA 2700mah at play.com were £9.99 delivered so buying two of this offer saves me £2 and gives me a spare charger.

Appreciate it is a 'non-intelligent' charger but I find it no hassle remembering to switch the thing off and I also have a Maplin solar charger which will keep the spare set of 4 topped up ready for use. The solar charger cost £9.99 some time ago and has proved its worth as long as I can leave the spare set of batteries in there for a few days on a south facing window sill.

Thanks to Bristle Hound for the post.
