This is a clearance deal instore at TESCO kingsway dundee.

Dunno if store specific, but tesco dundee has them. lots of them

Kodak Batteries Pack of 8 reduced to 50p but scan at 25pence.

Im going to get people moaning that kodak arent good but if you can get me batteries better than kodak for 3 pence each, then fair enough.

very well done, i didnt say it was online, i hate idiots on this site, this site is very good aswell and spoiled by idiots. If it was say free at welgate centre dundee would it be a bad deal because there is only 1 welgate centre.

How do you know its store specific anyway, it took you 2 minutes from listing it to vote cold. at the end of the day i couldnt care care less, just doing what this site was designed for and posted a deal that i bought lots of.

calm down lol, the product is rubbish hence the price, i found that they didnt last long compared to even the Panasonic batteries which you can purchase for a pound, yh i know they are 25p but in my opinion they aint even worth that
#5
Well I htink this is great! I have a 2 year old with lots of toys that need batteries and I bought these in Tesco when They were 75p! If I can find them I will get a load as Christmas is coming which means more noisy toys!!!
#6
They have these in poundland, my brother bought some for his camera and it would not even turn it on lol.

These batteries are only good for remote controls...
I used them in a LED lamp (very low power) only lasted one night (on Duracell it lasted for weeks)

Don't waste your time...

I just knew people would moan straight away for no reason, if people realised batteries are made for certain reasons, its all to do with the mAh that it holds. you get rechangable batteries fore £1 but they are useless for cameras etc but great for clocks. dosent mean they arent a great deal. Specific batteries do specific things. When people realise this, they might stop moaning, im sure this deal is hot and should be. genuine fellow HUKD ers will speak the truth.

I put in title im not sure if store specific, may well be but i doubt it, every store i know have sold these at some point
#11
Sorry but they will no doubt be zinc-carbon and are pretty useless and can always be bought very cheaply.
Buy alkaline or ni-cad don't waste your time with zinc-carbon.

You obviously do "care" if a product is rubbish it really dosent matter what the price is.
#14
This is maybe a good deal if you have a clock or remote that needs batteries right now, but for everything else I wouldn't bother.

Zinc-based batteries have such a short shelf life (maybe a year from manufacture - and this is old clearance stock already) that by the time you find a clock or something they will work in that needs batteries, they'll be dead anyway and just end up in the bin.

Kodak aren't good batteries - they leak after use, thus ruining devises if they are not removed when they go flat.

Only use them for low value items, or items where you are very quickly aware of them going flat.

Excellent comment !!!
Good find - HOT
#18
Yeah false economy load of junk you use 4 of these to one half decent cheapo brand.
#19
It's amazing how some people on this site are just duped by headline low prices, and really don't engage their brains but vote hot regardless. Tesco must be laughing at this: you're basically paying it to dispose of its toxic waste.

These batteries are rubbish and it's a prime example of buy cheap, buy twice - or buy millions of times if you're not sensible enough to invest in rechargeables instead.

If you showed that you understood the subject then your comments might be taken more seriously. These cheap rechargeable batteries of which you speak are not great for clocks at all, because of their self-discharge rate. No standard rechargeable batteries are great for clocks; it is only since the advent of hybrid types that they have been suitable for this application.

Oh i love the banter, some people just DONT get it. The purpose of the post is so that if people want to buy cheap batteries , then this is a good deal for them. It suited what i needed them for which is fine. Heres an equivelant for the people who dont understand, why do people drive old second hand cars. Its cheap at the time to buy it but costs more to maintain in replacing parts etc depending on age. A new car costs a lot more but lasts longer but not everyone can afford a new car. This is the whole point. Not everyone wants to pay £8 for a set of rechargable batteries that get lost by the kids and not everyone can afford to buy 8 packets of £8 batteries at christmas for the kids who will only use the toys they got for 30 minutes and get bored anyway.

Totally agree with you !, we always have a stash of 'cheapo' batts for kids toys, remotes, air freshner thingy, clocks etc and these are ideal for that and i was also sick of my expensive rechargeable ones for digi camera getting used and then 'accidently' getting thrown away ( i blame the hubby for that one ! ), so yes a good find and hope they have them in our store when i go tomorrow as i will stock up for xmas ,;)

Voted hot btw

This is quality mate coming from someone who buys cheap toilet rolls from lidl and then has the audacity to tell everyone online on HUKD he uses it, wasnt that a poor buy, £1.99 for the loo roll and £2.99 for anti-bacterial wash to clean where your finger went through the paper

Thank you for the positive comment, very few on here for any deals. If you can buy something and sell over 100 packs at 4 times the money at the boot sale, then surely a good deal aint it. wish i had time to do that but i dont , so i phoned a few folk that do have the time, they may not last long at our local store

Why does it require "audacity" to say I buy toilet paper from Lidl? I've never had a "finger go through it". And if I did, the washing of my hands that I do anyway would deal with it - I wouldn't be duped into buying "antibacterial wash" by the glossy TV scaremongering aka advertising.

To leave such an impression on you that you remember it for so long (how long exactly?) and feel the need to bring it up in a completely different thread is extremely odd and points to you having a very weird fascination with bodily functions. oO
#26
Not voted - for most apllications these are merely land fill and priced at 25p for a reason. Just because its cheap doesn;t make it worth buying - some on here definitely don't understand the concept of value for money rather than just cheap
#27
i will second the comment about them being prone to leaking.
not worth the hassle and will never buy again!
