Hybrio rechargeable AA and AAA batteries for £4.98 instore only.

ibizaibiza

THESE COST WELL UNDER A PENNY FOR EACH CHARGE INCLUDING BUYING THEM IN THAT PRICE.

This is the best price I have seen for AA and the second best for AAA, but the best currently available.

Hybrio batteries come ready charged - so you can use them like buying new traditional batteries (primaries). They differ from normal rechargeables in that they do not discharge as quickly when not used - and will retain 80% of their charge after 6 months - and 70% after a year (their own figures from the packaging - but there is no shortage of people in the forum using them and no shortage of praise).

These batteries have only about 78-80% the capacity of new high spec rechargeable batteries - but will remain charged when little used - so are most suited to clocks, remotes, calculators, bike lights if you don't cycle often, torches, radios, or to replace batteries in cordless phones that are seldom used/charged. They will work fine in items with higher power requirements too - as their capacity is on a par with reachargeable batteries from about 18 months ago. But for things like this you are really better buying 2700mAh traditional rechargeables.

These are 2100mAh for the AA and 800mAh for the AAA. They can be recharged up to 500 times, so with a decent charger and at a fraction of a penny to charge them are a tiny cost compared to normal alkalines etc - so UNDER A PENNY FOR THE ELECTRICITY TO CHARGE AND THE SHARE OF COST OF BUYING THE BATTERY.

They also take up as little as 0.2% of the space in a land fill.

Lets be honest, you really need to be a plonker to not be using rechargeable batteries by now - and these come ready charged from the pack. There are extremely few things that only require traditional primary cells.

Its £1.24 per battery and a fraction of a penny per charge. Each time you use and recharge one - its costing less than a penny in power and to pay for the battery.

Got the message yet? Go for it!!!

You know it makes sense - or do you like paying a fortune for batteries?

Lastly, if there is something about this you would like explained then ask here or send me a message. People show intelligence by realising they need information when they don't know something - rather than thinking its easier sticking to what you are doing instead of looking at newer potentially better options.

    Duplicate post use forum search



    I have checked posts going back to last Christmas and there are no threads for rechargeable batteries from Homebase.

    There were two expired posts for chargers including batteries - from five and seven weeks ago - when funnily I got the last stock at Homebase.

    So if its a duplicate post - show me it in an unexpired post.

    Well show us the link then!
    People do try and check you know, but the search on this site is so hit and miss it's hardly surprising that people occasionally post duplicate posts.

    A search for deal posts for batteries at Homebase in the past six months only gave me three post results, this one and

    here at £6.99 not expired; http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/205892/uniross-charger-4-hybrid-aa-batteri/

    and here £4.98 expired, http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/211030/uniross-compact-charger-with-4-x-hy/

    I got the last stock in some Glasgow stores - so its a new stock and there is no post showing the batteries as being available.

    'Last stock' - 'Expired' - Its not coming up in a search on its own - it does come up in expired threads with chargers, but people don't generally look at expired threads from over a month ago for deals - do they?

    Geez!!!!

    Funnily - I was the last person to post in the charger and battery offer at 7 quid - its ten minutes to cycle there - and they had none when I got there.

    When are mods going to ban 'duplicate post' complaints on here, and just trust posters to try and avoid posting duplicates? It's getting ridiculous!
    If you've seen a deal posted before, then whoopee! Bully for you - go on to the next post. For every duplicate post you see I can guarantee that there will be people who missed it first time around.
    I'm sure some people just browse on here looking for things to pull people up over!

    Same price at The Range - must be a promo.

    Great batteries; I bought a few sets from Asda when they were £3.15 - http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/152702/4-hybrid-aaa-and-aa-rechargable-bat/
    It's good to see the price is coming down to a generally low price.

    what mAH are they then?


    AA - 2100mAh

    AAA - 800mAh

    Taken from the batteries themselves - and added to the main post.

    MAH hour is only important if you drain the batteries every few days.

    With these batteries being very slow drain they will outperform all other rechargeable batteries types by miles in all other situations.

    it's been a slow day ;-)


    By slow did you mean not much happened - or was it a reference to mental capacity - whereby you imagined a deal had been posted already?
    ibiza
    lumoruk
    Well the deal had already been posted hence why I bought a load of these a while ago, slow as in not much been happening on a horrible wet day



    Can you show the post, or does the weather prejudice that too?

    You can unexpire deals by contacting mods by clicking on the red triangle to the left, I've had my deals months old unexpired after the item comes back in stock. As long as someone posts on it to say back in stock, it goes straight to the top of the forum again.

    edit: If I report it, get it unexpired then post, this will become a duplicate and will be deleted.


    The deal you linked to is for a charger and batteries, and it WAS a good deal too.

    It has EXPIRED - but they still have them, sadly for twenty quid.

    So you could ask it to be unexpired - but that would be SILLY as the deal no longer exists.

    The deal I posted was just for batteries, not batteries and a charger.

    There has been no thread posted just for batteries when I checked going as far back as last Christmas.

    You suggested earlier I should use search. I did - and there were no threads from Homebase for just batteries and I checked back to last Christmas.

    Also - I suggest you take your own advice, and try using forum search too, before you post that a deal is a duplicate. Advising someone to use the forum search when clearly you have not done so yourself is called HYPOCRISY.

    DUPLICATE means the same - 'batteries' and 'chargers with batteries' are not the same, now are they? To help you here - has anything you run on batteries never worked as it had a flat charger?

    Accordingly - I also suggest you brush up on your reading skills prior to attempting criticism of others.

    I used capitalisation to assist with your comprehension here, that means the BIG letters.

    I saw that posted - but no Asdas I was in had them.

    I needed them for this week - so this was the best price I could find currently.
