Great batteries, i have used the same Hama's for over 4 years now, (2500's), with no leakage or serious charge loss, wish there was a store near us! Great find.:thumbsup:

What a weird thing to say.

The purpose of the batteries you mention is to retain a charge longer - so they are better suited to low prolonged drain like - clocks - calculators - remotes - or anything that is unlikely to be used often. They manage this at the cost of only having two thirds the stored energy of normal rechargeables.

Normal rechargeables are more suited to anything that would be likely to flatten the batteries in a far shorter period of time - such as cordless phones - bike lights (if used often at night) - kids toys - PMR radios - battery extenders for USB charged devices.

Hi ibiza,

Sound like you know a thing or two about batteries. I'm thinking of buying some along with a re-charger for my Wii remotes. Here's what I've shortlisted:

As per main post
"In store offer

I'm all for rechargeables, but the problem that I have with them is that they drain far quicker then disposables if you don't intend to use them pretty much straight after charging them.

I've found that they're not a decent substitute for things like remote controls and smoke alarms.
#12
What's so good about Hama compared to other makes of Ni Mh batteries?
I'd go for the Hybrios previously mentioned at £3 for 4
Surely a better deal?

I've been using a Uniross 15 minute charger for a couple of years without any problems. Although it does seem to get the batteries very hot and I suspect that it's fried a couple of them.

These batteries hold their charge and you can use them straight out of the packet.
Good price
Voted Hot



Yeah, but hold their charge for how long? I've used all of the top brands and have found that they're fine holding their charge for however long you want to short term use something like a digital camera over a weekend or something like a remote controlled toy, but they just aren't suitable to be left in a product long term as they drain far quicker then disposable ones. That's fine if you're happy to keep on recharging and replacing them, but like I say, they're not ideal for things like remotes - so i've found that I can't use them for everything.

Put these in a remote or a smoke alarm and you'll be lucky to get a few weeks out of them. Use disposables and you'll get a year+.
#15
We use them with the Wii remotes and they're great
#16
Haven't used this particular brand but my Uniross 2700mA NiMH rechargeables have become essential in my life and saved me a fortune. I only buy AA powered gadgets where possible. My Canon Powershot takes 4 of them, and these 2700s last months as they (NiMH) have a very slow static discharge rate.

My secret is that right out of the packet I label up the batteries and dedicate them to a particular job eg. Canon A, B (two sets of four for my camera), and X360 A,B,C. This ensures that they theoretically discharge as a set and I never end up charging completely flat batteries with partially charged ones. Even if you can't find a particular application for them, just label them A,B,C,D in pairs or fours etc.

Maxpayne - the 2700mA should be better for you. I'd see if they have the Xpress charger rather than the super fast. Charging batteries in 15 minutes is a sure fire way to shorten their life span.
In other applications, charging batteries at 1C - or one times their rated capacity is considered a good safe maximum charge rate. 1C is roughly one hour to charge... 15 mins represents a charge rate of 4C! The slower the charge the longer the life expectancy of your battery.
This one might be a better bet. One hour charge. £12.99 with four 2700mAh AA. Play.com
Or this one. Takes up to four hours. £11.99 with smaller capacity 4x 2500mAh AA. I have several of these and they are great.

I dont know anything about the Wii - so my answer is a bit vague round that.

Both charges you showed are the same - its only the batteries that differ. They also can only charge two or four batteries at once - you cannot put one or three on charge. So if the Wii takes three then the charger is of little use to you - but if it takes one - you could charge from two handsets at once.

Chargers that can only take two or four batteries at once average the sensing of charging over the two or four batteries. This means if you could accidentally put a fully charged battery in with three flat ones - and it would receive the same charge - so the best chargers are ones with individual charging circuits for each battery.

I have a charger that is similar to this in that it only charges 2 or 4 - but its kept in the car so I am not stuck with flat batteries when I am out or if I go camping (etc).

I also have both sets of batteries in the chargers you showed - and cannot fault them. Which is now generally the case with most modern branded batteries.

Again returning to the Wii - I dont know the rate they use batteries - or how often you would use them. But as an analogy - I cycle a lot - so in winter standard 2700mAh rechareables are best - as my lights are used often so the battery would flatten through usage rather than time. However, in summer the Hybrio type would be best - as my lights might only be used for a short time a couple of times a month.

If you do get the options you suggested - you could be left Wii-less while the batteries charge - so for not much of a difference in price I would suggest you get...


http://img301.imageshack.us/img301/6339/lidlbatterychargerti1.jpg


...this charger from Lidl (which is still available in some stores for a tenner - and has six individual intelligent charging circuits for AA/AAA batteries - but can also charge four C or D batteries and two PP3 (9v square betteries) eaqually well. Being individual charging circuits - you could even charge (as an example) three AAA, one AA, a C and a D at the same time as two PP3s.

I am fairly sure it shares its components with an Ansmann charger at four times the price...


http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/209682/lidl-battery-charger-under-a-tenner/showthread.php?t=209682


...and that thread shows its specs and the arguements for and against it being the same workings inside. I have been using one for over a month now - and my only complaint would be it charges slightly faster than I need - which in turn will slightly shorten the battery life. Although as each battery is being monitored individually, I would guess it will not be as much a problem as it was on older chargers where monitoring was grouped.


Sticking to your original £16 spend - this would let you buy two sets of Hyrio AA (8 batteries) that someone mentioned above in this thread from Asda - and also means you can start using it to replace other batteries in your house as you realise the savings.

Lastly - think of a pile of batteries twenty wide, by twenty deep, by ten high. That is the number of batteries you would both buy and have disposed in a landfill, for the same price as a pack of four rechargeables.

Hi mugi,
Thanks very much for that. The xpress/smart chargers from uniross charge 4 2700 mah AA batteries in 4h 30m, which I guess is well below(over) 1C.

Thanks very much ibiza.

I'm sorry I should have gone a bit more in-depth explaining the Wii remotes (simply assumedd you'd know about them).

A Wii remote is basically a wireless games console remote and uses a standard alkaline battery in about two months given an average use of one hour a day. Each remote takes 2 AA batteries. Although I have two remotes, I usually end up using one, unless some friend comes over for multi player action :-D

Yep, bought them last week in Chapeltown (Sheffield) Asda. I assume that it's nationwide because the price ticket was a pre printed one with "was/now" price marked on the shelf. They only had 2 packs left & I bought both of them.

I don't tend to post in-store deals because of the very nature of them being in-store only deals. This one seemed a bit like the Currys/Pcworld ones priced at **.*7p where hardly any stores have them left. If there had been more stock on the shelf I would probably have posted but as there were only 2 left there was no point. It would have wasted peoples time and petrol making specific journeys.

If you are going to Asda anyway, it maybe worth having a look but I wouldn't make a specific journey just for these. The potential saving would just be eaten up in travel expense.
#22
Popped in to Asda - Eastleigh, Hampshire Store. No HAMA batteries and asked about them, none been in store at all ! Shame as I made a special trip for them, so I guess this is not a general offer across all stores.
#23
just been to my local Asda and could not see any Hama or Uniross Hybrio batteries :-(

If anybody can get the Hybrio AA 4 pack for £3 from Asda, I am willing to pay the cost + postage (2 packs please). thanks.
#24
none in my local store of Blackwood....never as been. Voted cold.
#25
Neither Hama or Hybrio in Asda Govan tonight.
