you try telling children, you are doing them a favour to wait hours before they can use there presents on Xmas day.


Or just charge them up the day before Christmas so you don't have to tell them that!???

This throwaway and convenience lifestyle is exactly why we have such a waste problem. Batteries aren't exactly the easiest thing to recycle either.

I know that's why I said nimh and lithium. Lithium for slow drain devices used over a long time like remote controls. Nimh for kids toys etc. The only batteries I have in my house that aren't rechargeable are in the smoke detectors.

These dont last very long. Bought some last year and everything I have used them in, dies in about a quarter of the time compared to Duracell.
Probably on par with cheap Panasonic batteries.

You'd need a lot more than 4, (unless yours are able to charge instantly?) Then not the same price at all...

Over time I have built up a set of Sanyo Eneloop Pro rechargeable AAs and AAAs.
Sure the initial price was way above any alkaline batteries, but they last very long and it also saves you 2 hassles:
1. If your battery runs dead, you don't have to go the shop or order one, just recharge it. In devices like XBox controller I don't even have to take them out.
2. It saves you from recycling the old batteries. You are supposed to recycle via special containers, which used to be a hassle for me.

Ummm... Because they can be re used up to 1000 times, they work out cheaper. The only real debate is over convenience, unless you're using dozens of batteries at one time and can't afford the up front cost, but you're not saving anything buying new batteries every month if so

think your missing my point, rechargeable batteries are not 1.5v so are not great for certain applications, they do make 1.5v version but they're very expensive and not widely available.

Alkaline batteries barely produce 1.5V for long - performance is very quick to decrease. What has the requirement for 1.5V batteries?

Not that much. Cheap aa batteries are a false economy most are very low capacity 800 to 1000ma . You can get a pack of 4 2900ma batteries for a fiver. They can be charged up to 500 times. I have some I've had for 8 years. Been charged hundreds of times. They last longer almost 3 times longer in most cases. A charger can be had for as little as 6 pounds

I've always got them from this company. Have really good customer service. If you have a failure of a battery they just send you a full pack free of charge. I use them In high drain applications for photography in flash guns. I've got some batteries that have been used and charged weekly for 6 years. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/371200334529

They also do a good cheap fast charger too. Which will charge 8 batteries

Most devices are fine with 1.2 volts. As a battery drains a 1.5v battery will drop below 1.5 volts. The cheaper a battery the lower the ability to hold a voltage. I'd be very interested to know what sort of device you are talking about which is so sensitive to voltage drop?

Which 1.5v batteries are you using that don't degrade below their nominal voltage as they discharge? Unless you have the kind of use case that's specific enough that you should really be leading with it, it's highly unlikely that this matters.

You are right I don't have children but I do have experience of Christmas day. I had rechargeable batteries in my toys back in the late 80s and early 90s. I learnt that I had to wait to play with my toys that needed batteries. It made playing with those toys special and I looked forward to playing with my radio controlled car etc. You choose to buy toys that need batteries you choose to give instant access to said toys by constantly providing batteries. There is another option. Yes rechargeable batteries take some time (2 hours) to charge and yes they cost a bit more up front but they pay for them selves many time over within a very short time. Plus batteries don't need to live in a device or toy. You can swap them about.

I realise a 1.5v battery will drop but so will a 1.2v battery, its just a 1.5v is starting from a higher point to drop from.

At the end of the day it's just advice. No one is forcing you to take it but I thought I would try and help people as I've a long history of use of rechargeable batteries. I see buying cheap batteries in the same way as weekly payment stores. A massive waste of money.

The trouble nowadays with toys is the batteries are normally screwed in pretty tight behind their access doors with poor quality odd shaped screws so its not always a 5 second job to change around batteries.

If you are serious about torches aa batteries are not going to deliver great results. The best high power torches these days use 18650 lithium ion high current cells which are able to be charged up to 4.2 volts and provide over 1000 lumens.

I'd get your self an Anker battery pack from Amazon. They do 20100ma pack which is useful to charge phones run USB powered speakers etc. I use them all the time when travelling with work and camping. Will substantially extend the life of my bose soundlink mini when camping.

I hear what you are saying. When my mates kids were young I would buy the most annoying battery powered toys available and made sure they had difficult to access batteries. Many of those toys would get 'lost' when they tired of hearing them. Easy solution was just to buy a set of security screw bits like these. http://www.screwfix.com/p/titan-security-screwdriver-bit-set-32-pieces/1445H?kpid=KINASEKPID&cm_mmc=GoogleLocal-_-Datafeed-_-Tools&cm_mmc=Google-_-Product%20Listing%20Ads-_-Sales%20Tracking-_-sales%20tracking%20url&gclid=COiu3_f98NACFcO37QodaX4Muw

Eneloops will maintain 1.2v a lot, lot longer than these will maintain 1.5v.

If torches are your go to example, you might even find that the rechargeables give you a brighter torch over time, even if the disposables start off brighter.

Regardless, if you care enough about torch brightness to get the right batteries, they probably won't be AA batteries in the first place.

Ha Ha 2900mA, next you will be telling me that a fully grown elephant will fit in a phone box. Seriously, the absolute upper limit to fit NiMH into an AA cell is around 2600mAH. Anything that claims to be above that will either be lying or will have such thin insulating material that after a dozen charges will be totally dead.

Search ebay for "instant aa rechargeable 2500mah". These are low self-discharge rechargeable batteries which means they will not go flat after a year of lying around like normal rechargeables do. Also they have higher capacity than other low self-discharge rechargeables. They are as good as the best the leading brands have to offer, like Eneloop Pro, but are a lot cheaper. Four batteries are £5.50. Eneloop Pro cost over twice as much but battery capacities are the same.

I invested in a smart charger and rechargeable AA and AAA batteries 11 years ago and they are all still in use. I have bought more over the years as the need arose and now generally have a few of each ready charged for when something runs down. I have never found anything that works with disposable batteries that doesn't work with rechargeables although sometimes the battery compartment may be a tight fit as rechargeables tend to be a bit bigger.
