Good price & save the planet!![SIZE="4"]:thinking:[/SIZE]

A good price. Hot!

I am very happy with the same type of batteries purchased on ebay by 'vapextech'. Instead of 'hybrio' these are called 'instant'. He sells them for £5 for 4 AA or AAA delivered. (for those of you not close to an asda)

These type of batteries are apparently only manufactured in 3 factories. Panasonic, Sanyo and someone else, so even uniross are may be just labeling someone else's product.

These 'hybrio' type are better in most situations as they lose charge so slowly, they can be charged up now and used in 6 months. Most rechargeables will need another charge after 6-8 weeks even without use.

Good one thanks, I will pop in my local Asda this weekend and see what's available. I think it will only be a year or so before hybrio/eneloop type batteries almost completely replace standard NIMHs :)

4 x AA 2500 mA for £2.99 delivery adds a bit so you will only save if you need a lot.

these are not the new hybrid type and also very poor quality. Bought some a while back and failed after a little while

£2.99? Add delivery, plus maybe some burnt furniture, and godforbid, personal injury.

Do not try to save few ££ and risk your lives in the process. Rechargeable batteries are potential explosives - do not trust unbranded stuff!

i know i think the vapextech ebay seller has made a mint out of me as ive bought well over 200 batteries from them (initially as the young son was throwing them away :w00t:!! so lost about 30-40 batteries)....the instant ones are slightly lower capacity, 2000mah rather than 2900mah but they do hold the charge alot longer....i can vouch for that

wow thats not good...i have over 200 from vapextech plus a very small number from maplin/uniross, never a problem...when my son was 5 he showed me the powerful 6v battery from his radio controlled transformer type item bought in Hong Kong, all leaking!!...rushed him straight to the sink and washed his hands and cleaned his hands with medical cleanser...then binned the battery. You have to be careful what batteries you do buy

2100mAh is fairly low capacity, I guess they are clearing stock to make way for more modern ones.

What batteries are you talking about? I have never heard of Uniross Hybrio batteries failing in a short time.

BTW: 7dayshop.com rechargeable batteries and their chargers are excellent. I have been using them for the last 3 years and not one of them has failed. Their delivery charges are a rip-off though.

I've must have a dozen+ 7dayshop batteries. Never had a single problem. Very good value. I would fully recommend them.
#12
I've also never had a problem with any of my 7DayShop rechargeables, however, that said, I really want some Hybrio/Eneloop batteries for my Camera, they are soo much better than the standard NiMH batteries.

ibiza, 2100mAh is about the current limit on Hybird batteries, I know it seems a lot lower than you can get from standard NiMH, but they are a much better technology.

What's the better performer, a 2.5l People carrier, or a 2l sports car? Don't always just go of what the numbers tell you.
#13
so can anyone confirm if this offer is nationwide? thanks
#14
asda also have 2 for £1 on bottles of pop such as Lilt so maybe worth a visit to ASDA!!!!

It's on in my local. Thanks OP. Picked up a few packs this morning. They have AAA for the same price too (hardly seems fair, but seems to best price for these little ones too).

oops corrected my post, meant to say NOT hybrid. I was talking about the 7dayshop own brand. Bought a few of the AA type and they soon gave up the ghost and refused to charge. Guess I could have been unlucky with a rogue batch. I still have the Sony CyberEnergy ones that went for steal from Play a couple of years back and they are still going strong depsite numerous discharges/recharges.

I've got 2100mAH in both hybrio & ni-mh, yet the hybrio lasts longer & seems to cope with high current demand better, almost as good as alkaline.

Ive just gone and bought 2 packs of these. Thanks :-)

Does anyone know how to work out how long to charge them for?

About an hour with my energizer charger.

That doesnt really help me :?

My charger doesnt switch off automatically, so I have no idea how long to leave them charging!
#21
Homebase have UNiROSS Hybrio batteries at £4.99 for 4 AA 2100mAh and the same price for 4 AAA 800mAh . They also have 4 AA 2100 mAh batteries plus a mains charger for £9.99.

There is a good article in Wikipedia on Ni-MH batteries with lots of information on this new type of Ni-MH battery.

If they are like most NiMH, you must give them an extra long (up to double) initial charge, or they will never reach full capacity on all future cycles.

They're designed to be used straight out of the pack (since they hold their charge better than NiMH, they can be pre-charged by manufacturer).
