I was in the Norwich branch of Poundland this morning when I came across these regargeable batteries.

They are Ni-Cd 800mAh which probably does not make them very good for digital cameras and the like , but are more adequate for TV and DVD remote controls and other devices with a lower power requirement etc..

Apparently according to some recently added commments these are good for kids toys - but if anyone knows if the same applies to Adult toys then please add! ;OP

Hi jonboy. I've added the price and retailer name to the title, as this helps people whp are viewing from the forum to see whether they want to click through or not :)

not hot.

i can see this offer from last one year in Poundland.. If someone can find out same type of offer for AAA cells, it would be great.

Ni-cd 800mah, sorry but not worth the effort of charging when there are so many good priced NiMh's:thumbsup:
#4
These are great for things like remote controls and kids toys. Yes, they're not as powerful as NiMH, but at 25p each, you can't go wrong. Also - with an intelligent charger, they charge up in 45 mins.

Great deal Jonboy! Cheers!!!

Not at 25p each there aren't. Poundland have had these for several months now, they are good for low demand uses and cheap enough for spares for digi cameras if youb are desperate.

cheap. but rubbish for digital cameras and the likes.
#8
Only good for remote controls really, even then they'll end up being flat pretty quick as nicads don't hold their charge for very long.
#9
Believe me, yes they are a good buy for £1.00, but put them in clocks and very low drain uses and they will be fine, saves your good Ni Mhi for serious use. I have been using rechargeable batteries for about 30 years, these NiCd AA's @800mah are 20 year old technology. "simate" is giving good advice!!

And you would have too be:w00t:

Voted hot, been using these batteries from poundland for a good few months now in my Wii remote and they work great :).
#12
Possibly ok for clocks and other 'very' low powered items, but I would pay the £2.49 and get 4 * 2100 Ni Mhi from Aldi.
#13
These are good batteries for things that use only a moderate amount of energy, and over a short time-span. By that i mean they are pointless in a clock or remote as they will have self discharged before you would have the chance to use the energy stored. Likewise, no good for high drain things like modern digital cameras that need a lot of energy relatively quickly.
But great for things like:
Toy Remote Conrols, Walkman, Personal Radios, Things that buzz in the night, Walkie-Talkies and anything with a small electric motor.
You can trust me on this. Worked for the UKs No1 Battery Tester supplier. Bear in mind these are Ni-Cd and will have a "memory-effect". You should really run them till they are completely flat before recharging to prolong life and get the full benefit. 800maH isnt that bad, still better than an average zinc-chloride or cheap alkaline standard battery. And greener too (when recycled at the end of its life)
#14
stick these in solar powered outdoor lighting and they are well worth this money HOT
#15
One more thing, these will be 1.2V NOT 1.5V like a normal battery - so unless you want to be late for work - DONT PUT THESE IN CLOCKS PLEASE.
#16
I've been using these for a while, and would agree they are good for things like remote controls etc, but are dont work so well in clocks. They are good value for a £1, I think i've bought about 15 or more packs of these and had no problems. Just dont expect to get good performance when used in devices such as a digital camera.
#17
wait for the next Lidl deal and stock up on decent 2500 MiMH's for only 1.99.
Voted cold
#18
seems a reasonable deal, anyone recommend a charger to get ?

4 batteries for a quid

good deal
#20
Poundland have been selling these for as long as there's been a Poundland in Dundee, so at least a few years, they are OK, I put them in my Logi Cordless when my Ni-MH's die.


They are a lower voltage than a non-rechargable, but then that goes for Ni-MH cells too, there's no difference. The only rechargeable AA batteries that offer the full voltage are Alkaline jobs from Pure Energy and Rayovac, sadly these are relatively expensive and generally hard to find.

Got several packs of these and although they take an age to charge (a say) they are excellent for digicameras and the like. Lidl and Aldi do these on a regular basis and whilst the Poundland ones are okay, I don't put them in heavy drain items. Lidl did the AAA batteries as well
#22
Have bought a few of these packs and they are fine for tv,dvd remote controls,radios, torches etc.
I put some in a 7" LCD TV but the power goes down quickly.
For £1 they are good value.
Yes..the Lidl/ Aldi ones are better but then they're twice the price.
No way these are a Cold Vote!
#23
I use dozens of rechargeables , my 800 mAh ones were a first purchase from homebase before I knew any better. Now I only buy 2500 mAh( mainly from ebay) ones.

these are really cheap because they are rubbish.:roll:
#24
NiCad batteries lose their charge quite quickly, I don't think I'd bother putting them in remotes as they would need charging every month, wheras alkaline last for a year or more!!!

I've often wondered, where exactly are we supposed to take our batteries for recycling?

They charge in about an hour with my Uniross charger. The Aldi/Lidl chargers take somewhat longer.
