Use rechargables. What more can I say?
#2
You have 4 rechargeables 2500mAh batteries, What's the cost of charge 4 batteries 6 times.?.. Less then £5.00 I believe, but how much exactly?

I don't have time to work it out at the moment, but I believe it only costs a few pence to charge 4 AA batteries. :)

**Edit: Ok I was bored :)..... my battery charger would use around 7p electricity to charge eight 2400mah AA batteries.**

Absolute waste! Use rechargeables, high capacity recharables can be picked up for next to nothing from 7dayshop.

oO Everyone's a bit grouchy this morning

The electricity you get from a standard battery is far superior to that of a recharged battery. You'll notice the difference in say an mp3 player straight away and if you don't, then frankly you shouldn't be listening to music. I also find my XBOX controller infinitely more responsive with regular batteries as opposed to recharged ones which helps alot in online gaming

Taking the rechargeable argument aside, it might be a better deal for these;

8(+4 free) GP Alkaline AA, £1.99 @ Home Bargains (instore)

And also before you start the discussion of 'Energizer are better than xxx' watch the Gadget show review of batteries last week and you will see GP came 1st.

Being serious again you should also look back for the 7dayshop deal where there was a big box of AA batteries for a very good price

Try a play and charge kit, had mine 2 years and it lasts many hours.

Sorry for going a bit off topic...but GP really have gone downhill recently. I bought about 3 boxes of 40 AAA GP Ultra to find about 10 batteries in each ruined due to leakage - they were stored correctly in a cool dry place and are well within the 'use-by' date. These are one of their top ranges and I'm also less than impressed with their customer service (no response whatsoever)

Sorry for the rant but I'd really consider buying GP batteries unless I'm just particularly unlucky

As a result I'd say this deal is pretty decent for an alternative brand!

You ( and all other battery posters) could say that this works out to 21p ber battery to save us all getting the calculators out too work it out. Now your deal can be compared to other battery deals on price.

LOL, are you serious? Can you explain how the xbox controller is more responsive or how music sounds better? It's all in your head, either the batteries work and turn the device on and it works the same as it would with disposable batteries or it won't work at all...
#17
To the above, totally agree, the music comes out, or it doesn't, the controller works, or it doesn't!

The rechargeable batteries they were using were obviously providing an unstable power source ie [email protected]! Had this with a home phone. Phone would cut calls/reboot etc. Replaced batteries - all fine.

From an (immediate) economic and convenience perspective this is a hot deal - though would personally pay a extra for good quality low self discharge rechargeables.
That said, there is the occasional device that doesn't like the ~1.2v output from rechargeables compared to 1.5v from disposable batteries.

yes , its like the difference between tap water , and bottled water.
My mp3 player really likes good electricity.

I don't understand what you mean by "alot" is it a word you've made up ?

BUT those figures are very misleading, because the higher internal resistance/discharge characteristic of disposables means the difference in practice is hugely less than the figures might suggest.

I think you overestimated rather!

Capacity of battery: volts * ampere-hours = 1.2*2.4 = 2.88Wh
Capacity of 8 batteries = 23.04Wh, which is about 1/40th of a unit, which is about 0.4p @ 15p/unit. Even allowing for efficiency losses of 50%, it still costs less than 1p to recharge 8 AA cells.

Buying disposables in this quantity is a seriously dumb thing to do.

so I suppose you have rechargeable batteries in every AA compatible product in your house?
using a rechargeable in a clock or tv remote just seems impractical to me.

I found the word in the dictionary of typographical and grammatical errors I own. It was close to the use of the word "its" as opposed to the correct "it's", being short for it is.

But if you dont buy them "in this quantity " then you wont get them for 21p each, and they are sure to have a shelf life of a good few years, ideal for emergencies... Hot

I see - so you buy more than you need because you can get them cheaper. Not much of a bargain to me. You must have an enormous number of clocks and remote controls.

These are useful for giving away together with children's birthday presents and for some of the devices at home. I have a few sets of rechargeable batteries but am a little stingy to give them away with presents. Ordered and heat added. Thanks.

Was joining to buy these, but just been round my mothers and she has about 25 unused batteries with a use by date on most of June 10 so i will take some of these instead.

But good deal

What a wonderful present it would be to a child, a charger and a set of batteries, along with whatever the batteries are for. Could change their attitude to waste entirely.

I'm getting seriously p!ssed off with all the landfill comments. Any retailer that sells, in effect, more than about 4 batteries a day has to by law have a recycling collection point for batteries.

Well, firstly, battery recycling points do not mean that most batteries won't still end up in landfill, especially considering the mentality of those who buy large numbers of the things when rechargeables are self-evidently the way to go is hardly conducive to making the effort to recycle them. And secondly, recycling still takes a huge amount more energy than recharging a rechargeable battery, so there is an additional disadvantage.

What a silly argument. Use rechargables for high drain stuff like cameras and put a pack of these in a cupboard for remotes, clocks, toys and all the other trickle powered stuff that you put batteries in and then forget about.
