Waste of money.
Use these,

and on the 6th charge (or less!) you are into profit, just like using disposables, without any of the drawbacks of standard rechargeables

Spot on, agree 100%. Disposeables are dead to me.

Does anyone know of any tests on batteries, everyone seems to be putting +, ultra or super in front, but what are they like in real world applications i.e. camera, torch etc. I'm currently testing some NiMH stay charged batteries but I like to keep a few of these about for remotes and things.

I prefer rechargeable as well but these have their place for toys,remotes etc which have low drain and you do not wish commit rechargeables. So a statement like a waste of money is totally subjective (cost of a charger, electricity !)
BTW,how do you spend all that profit you make and I do hope you are declaring it to Mr Darling? :)

For the most part I use recahargables. However rechargable are only 1.2v as opposed to 1.5v of disposable batterys. This dosent appear to be a problem for most things but I have found the occasional device that wont work with recharagables so need to use disposables. Also as someone else has pointed out devices that have a low drain dont benefit much because of the natural discharge of rechargables (not so much of a problem with the newer hybrid batteries).

If you are buying disposables at a dozen a time... you NEED rechargeables.

Costs of rechargeables are so low now, the "investment" involved is pretty small, while the "return" is pretty high. I wish I could buy everything else as a one-off, pay just 5 times the initial price, then use it up repeatedly for years to come, without ever paying for another again other than a tiny fraction to recharge it! Imagine a petrol tank like that!

Mr Darling has already had his cut of what I am spending, that's why I want to spend less on what I have to spend it on, so there is more for what I WANT to spend it on.
