good deal. how do i get free delivery on this?

Not a useful use of money, time and plastic (excluding the Tesco plastic bag) ! It is very user unfriendly to buy 1300 mah battery, it is low capacity since these days high capacity batteries are at least 2000 mah and my last order was for 2600 mah. 1300 mah is OLDE stock and the chemicals in them is stale and past the sell by date if they were food. I doubt if they hold any where near 1300 mah since after a while the electrical properties of them chemicals are less reversible during charging. Buy instead the onces which are fresh batteries and have at least 2000 mah capacity. With 1300 mah you will be charging twice as much, all too much work, the time is better spent surfing on hotukdeals! [SIZE="5"]At about 50p a battery you may as well buy ~ £1 for a NiMH Energizer that is twice the capacity![/SIZE] However where the sheer number of batteries matters rather than the capacity this is hot! And Energize is a great brand for batteries.

Nope, I have one of these and they are rubbish.

Fully charged I had them in my TV remote for less than a week before they started fading so I imagine in something that actually requires any energy this will die immediately.

If I put them in my wirless mouse the light won't even come on, as if you have fed it 10 year old batteries that have been long used.

Would steer clear

that is because you use it for wrong application... you are better off with using nicad battery... nimh battery is good for high drain devices... remote control is definitely not a hig drain device... nimh battery lose its charges over time... that is why it is useless for u :)
#12
OK if you need a cheap basic charger.

These are last generation batteries.

Hybrids are the all rounders. Useful for remotes too.

I never voted on this one.
#13
I agree with the people who are suggesting this deal may not be so hot... Not so much the batteries that really are old stock (although should still be ok) but the problem in my opinion is the charger which is well below par and will do more harm to your batteries than good.
Always invest about £25 (more if you can afford some of the better chargers) in a good micro controlled charger (should take 13hr to recharge not 2hrs!!) and you can be assured your batteries will last for years and years and exceed their recharge ratings :thumbsup:

LOL I am still using some 750mA AA's which are still fine for certain jobs...
#14
would these be good for an xbox 360 controller?
#15
**** batteries.
so so charger.
its cheap because its rubbish.
Avoid.
#16
I use the 2500mah version for my 550ex and I wouldnt go back to batteries like this :/
#17
This is a good start for beginning to use rechargable batteries - but the 1300mAh is well under 50% of what good rechargable AAs should have.

Rechargable batteries are only rated at 1.2v instead of the 1.5v of normal batteries, but good ones should be able to hold more power than their normal counterparts.

you should not use rechargeables in low drain applications such as remotes or clocks they are
1.2volts so may not work also they are designed for high drain equipment such as motorised items, that need constant battery replacement in that situation they will outlast alkalies by many times, though the ones in this deal are half the MAH of the newest ones available unless its a typo, Energizer rechargables are some of the best and miles better than the Uniross ones you see in most shops, also remember that rechargebles dont reach their full capacity untill they have undergone several charge /discharge cycles
#20
I use these in my wireless keyboard and mouse every day, work perfectly and need charging approximately once every month and a half.

Bought them about a year ago and still working perfectly today. Would definitely buy again (maybe a keyboard/mouse doesnt use much power compared to what you guys have been doing, mine seem to last ages)

Agreed!!! This guy knows what he is talking about. Ive seen better deals on argos come and go where they have a aaa and a aa charger in one with 2000+ mah and nimh should be the only viable option. If it was 1300 mah in AAA batteries, then this deal would have been much better. My 2 cents.

rechargeable batts are good for that, yes, but not these ones, pay a bit more for a higher capacity version (2000mAh +)


but definitely get rechargeable

Thanks for your kind comment. As an incentive here is what I bought very recently from 7dayshop and [SIZE="4"]few people are aware of these batteries as alternative to the similar Hybrio and Eneloop, [/SIZE]I may start moving to these batteries. Since best quality batteries can last for 10 years, well worth the extra pence per battery. I found that because of ease of use the lower quality, the lower capacity and cheaper ones that I bought in the past just get left behind in my drawer. My other favourites batteries are Panasonic NiMH 2300 mah and Energizer NiMH 2200 mah. Both types could be recharged in 15 mins from flat in my fast Energizer recharger and they tend to hold their capacity for a week longer than the cheaper batteries when left in my camera. The reason that I am trying this is because it is so inconvenient to find NiMH batteries flat just when you need them and need to go out doors soon (although this problem was largely removed by having the 15 mins fast charger whereas before this I used to have to carry a pack of AA alkaline as spares). And I agree with a previous guy that it is well worth the extra few £s for a decent micro-processor controlled charger or at least a self switch off one as overcharging batteries shortens their life expectancy. Again a competent charge will last for about a decade on average for vast majority of people.

http://www.7dayshop.com/catalog/images_resample.php?image=pana_infinium.jpg for £5.89 + postage (any quantity of items for £3) so it is £1.25 a battery.
Panasonic's revolutionary INFINIUM battery answers the demand for greater convenience, stability and reliability.
INFINIUM: are the latest generation of rechargeable batteries which are supplied charged and ready to use for improved convenience. Additionally (and perhaps more importantly) Panasonic Infinium batteries will retain their charge for longer than standard Ni-Mh batteries with up to 80% of its capacity remaining after 1 year.

• Ready to use: The Infinium batteries are fully charged at the factory. The Infinium batteries can be used immediately after purchase.
• Over 365 days Standby Power: After one year of storage, up to 80% (1) of the battery's power is still present.
• Battery for life: After 1000 charging cycles (2), Infinium batteries keep their ability to store power – this could be a battery for life!
• High reliability: Suitable for all appliances where long-term stability and reliability are a priority from remote controls to digital cameras.

Got to agree with the other less positive comments, these are cheap, but they are also very low capacity. If you can afford it then the new hybrid batteries are definitely the way to go. If you are constantly using rechargeables and so recharge them once a week anyway, then ordinary NiMH batteries should be fine, but you'd want a higher capacity than these.

Not voted either way as these are cheap IF you really need 8 batteries and a charger and have very little money to spend, but you can get MUCH better for not a great deal more expense.

Agree with this, these ones are just manual chargers, you have to place the battery in and manually time it, may be fine if you are charging a fully flat battery, but what if you just want to topup? How can you accurately calculate how long to place it in for?

Spend a bit more and get an auto cutoff charger, much less hassle.

No charger but if you have a charger as yet invest a few £'s on a really good one with electronic controlled charging and cut off.

So you have told us about the best batteries and im sold on them, now please recommend a great charger too :thumbsup:

This is a good price for what it is, but honestly why would anyone buy 1300mah AA batteries? You'll constantly be charging them. Better by far to spend a little more buy some of the new type that hold their charge over time.

Those Low self discharge batteries are all similar AFAIK, Sanyo Eneloops are apparently the best but are quite expensive.
There's a list of the different brands names here wikipedia

These Low Self Discharge batteries can be charged in normal chargers.

Can anyone recommend AAA rechargables to use in 'walkie-talkies' (PMR446 two way radios) that we intend to talk between cars with, and to keep intouch with over short ranges while on holiday?

Or even a car charger for the same?

Wasted in a wireless keyboard. Apart from the fact that 1300mah (or whatever) is too low when 2600 or 2700 are available you should be using normal alkaline in a keyboard. I have Duracell in my k'board and they last about 2 years !! Use rechargeables in the mouse (2600) and they last about 6-8 weeks. For nicads & nimh I've always used 7 day shop. Spot on service & good prices - no connection!!
#36
I have found using ones with cords make the batteries redundant - and the ingenious idea of attaching input devices to the machine prevents their getting lost.

I had a cordless mouse once - which i attatched to the PC with a bit of string - as i was always misplacing it!!! :whistling::whistling::whistling:
