For those that doubt the maplin quality, just look at the tests here:
http://www.batteryshowdown.com/results-lo.html

it clearly shows that most alkaline batteries are within a few percent of each other, and although the maplin ones are nearer the bottom in these test, they're within 10% of the top ones. Certainly not worth paing 3x, 4x price etc for a name-brand.

At full price, the Pro-cells look better, being around 20-25 quid for 100, but at 15 quid, these are a steal, as are the AAA versions also on offer.

If you buy enough today, Maplin have a £5 off over £50 and £10 off over 100, so stock up on batteries for Christmas and the new year!

Probably better off with Kodak Xtralife at 8 for £1 at Poundland. Cheaper and you don't need to buy so many at a time. http://www.batteryshowdown.com/static/images/mah_large_200mA.png

I saw some Alkaline batteries at Amazon and there was also a 'buy used and save' option for them,.

Couldn't resist - if you bought better quality ones you wouldn't have to buy them all the time :)

Voted hot.

Clearly you've never experienced any leaking. Kodak batteries are bad... very bad.
And you may well be trusting your £1 batteries in a device that cost 80x the price of the batteries.
Cheap batteries are a very good example of false economy.

Well, alkaline batteries are the example of false economy. Read that top chart and you will see that, apart from a bright first 10 minutes, in a bright torch you get a duller light and as little as half the run time as a modern rechargeable battery. Alkalines are OK for remote controls though.

IMHO this deal should be hotter. Less than 15p per unit (cashback), delivered to your door, for a "middle of the pack" performance battery is good value.
However, IKEA's own brand batteries are the same price and offer better performance, but you have to trail over to an IKEA for them, or pay £9 delivery.

Very true in respect of Kodak (I suffered the very same issue) - however I suspect those Kodak were in fact NOT Alkaline as claimed, but instead the older zinc carbon technology.

In part that's true - but equally to lithium and zinc batteries HOWEVER, it entirely depends on your use.
Unless you buy the newer even more expensive rechargeables, the shelf life is pants and for sporadic use, they end up flat in no time - useless.
Frequent high drain use - deffo - rechargeable
Occasional low use, alkaline
Rare but high drain when used (camera flash?), lithium are the best
#15
Nope, lithium rechargeable would be best.

I cant see the point of use once for any high drain gadget whatsoever. And the 100+ charges Enloop type can be found much cheaper than Lithoum.
