If you wanted more than 4 you can get 8 @ amazon for £14.99
#2
Don't you have to spend £15 to get free delivery with Amazon though?

I think it's £14.97 for free del...

The AAAs are only £6.63 on amazon if anyone needs those :)

I prefer to buy things for potatoes. Buying things for money is just too bizarre.

Is that supposed to be funny? :roll:

duracell supreme 4 x aa £7.99 @ argos


Are these as good as the Eneloop ones though, which everyone seems to rave about?
#10
I can feel an argument brewing....much like the last time someone posted the £9.99 Amazon for 8 eneloops earlier this year! eg Eneloops aren't powerful enough, etc, etc
#11
Anyone tried an eneloop in a 15minute charger?
#12
The Uniross equvalents are available from Amazon (see this post here) http://www.hotukdeals.com/forums/showthread.php?t=89559&highlight=eneloop

for £2.99 for two AA cells and a charger so only £5.98 for 4 AAs and 2 chargers.

I have some Duracell ones, and they haven't been too good, that's why I was looking at the Eneloop ones, especially as Montala says, everyone is raving about them... :thumbsup: Personally I'll be trying the Eneloops... ;-) I'd rather pay a bit more for batteries that last a lot longer...
#14
So essentially these are the new(ish) hybrid batteries but, they can be recharged 1000 times unlike most which can only be recharged 500 times. Sounds good to me. What amperage are they though? I can't see this information anywhere.
#15
The main point about the eneloop batteries is that they last longer, because they are made differently. I don't now the details, but it appears they don't lose their charge over time like others do. Basically they are better... ;-)
#16
I can wholeheartedly recommend these batteries. I use them for my wiimotes and they're absolutely brilliant. In fact I'm so impressed, I'm thinking of ditching the official MS rechargeable packs for my Xbox 360 and using these.

Just bought, thanks~

Its worth checking out 7dayshop.com for rechargable batteries. I just bought 3 packs of 4 x 2500mha AA batteries at £2.99 per pack. Delivery was about £3.95. They are re-branded though so I don't know what they're like yet, but the power rating is good and in general its a well established reliable site.

me too - hopefully they will be good in my camera.

More eneloop info here: http://www.eneloop.info/whatseneloop.html :thumbsup:
From the site:
How was the self-discharge reduced?
Modern Ni-MH batteries consist of two metal stripes ( anode and cathode ),
which are separated by a non-conductive porous plastic foil ( separator ).
These three stripes are laid on top of each other and are winded to a coil.
This coil is put in a metal can and immersed with a liquid ( electrolyte ).
Then the metal can is closed with a cap.

The self discharge of Ni-MH batteries is caused by three main reasons:
* the chemical decomposition of the cathode,
* the natural disaggregation of the anode,
* Impurities of the anode.

Now, how could the self-discharge in the eneloop been reduced?

The chemical decomposition of the kathode has been reduced substantially by the use of a new superlattice alloy.
As an additional benefit the superlattice alloy increases the electrical capacity of the battery and reduces the internal resistance, which allows higher discharge currents.
Another advantage of the reduced decomposition of this alloy is the fact, that less Cobalt is needed to stabilize the alloy.
The anode has been strengthened by another new material, which reduces the natural disaggregation.
Additionally the separator and the used electrolyte have been optimised for low self discharge of the eneloop.

There's an independant review here. Quite a long read but basically says the batteries are great.
#22
Will these Eneloop rechargables be ok to use with my wireless mouse as it seems to need new batteries every 2-3 weeks??
(and before anybody asks I use Durcacell not cheapies).;-)

Also can somebody recommend a cheapish charger from play as well to go with them.

tia.
#23
Hybrid batteries combine the long shelf life of alkaline batteries with the ability to be recharged. The Eneloop batteries seem a really good deal but, it is important to know their amperage as this indicates how long they will last before needing recharged e.g. how may photos can be taken with a digital camera before the batteries run out. So, does anyone know the amperage of the Eneloop batteries?

If you do a search for "eneloop" on Play or Amazon you will find the batteries with chargers too...
#25
I'm using Hybrio's and they are as good as all my other rechargables.
Haven't tested to see if they hold there charge when not in use and prob wont get to.

I think they are only available in 2000 mAh
#27
Cheers !

Just ordered.

I think you are correct... :p
#29
The selling point is that what you actually get after you charge them and let them sit for a few weeks/months is the batteries fully charged capacity, versus regular NiMH jobs that discharge fairly rapidly whether they are in use or not.

I've had **** batteries with higher rated mAh than these that haven't lasted a particularly long time, or managed many charge cycles.

Got 8xAA and 4xAAA for £3.99 thanks to that Amazon £15 DVD rental thingy, haven't needed to really put them through their paces yet.
