Pack of 4. Economical and environmentally friendly, ready to use batteries. Rechargeable up to 500 times, and compatible with any standard battery charger. 5-year battery life.

These are the type that retain their charge if not used, so 800mAh is about the norm.

A far better buy than the misery types on Ebay - or the dubiously rated BTY brand that appears to claim twice the battery's actual capacities.

There are 120 Screwfixes distributed about the country for you to pop into to buy these - but if you do decide to have them delivered the postage is a rather prohibitive fiver on sales under fifty quid. So its only really worth visiting to buy these or to use them to up an order over the free delivery threshold. If you do - then there is quidco at 6% too.

I gave the rest of the rechargeable batteries on their site a once over - and there are no others that seem a good price to save you looking.

To be fair they are like mobile phone batteries - and you need to give them about ten charges before they reach their real capacity.

I am buying them for bike lights over summer - as I only need them a couple of days a month - so they should be able to last all summer on one charge.

If your local Asda still has them in stock, then they are £2.99 for the AA and AAA 4-packs. I'm sure it's been posted elsewhere.

My local Asda (Trafford) has a higher price on the tab, but they scan at £2.99.

Nice Find Ibiza Thanks! Been Looking at these and the cheapest I found them was £1 each AAA I need 10 for my walkee talkee's so three packs it is added to my latest screwfix order Voted Hot when I find the Button....:oops:

£3.15 last time I bought some at Asda.

The best batteries you can find unless you always drain your batteries in a couple of days.
#8
anyone know where I could find some good C type rechargables, I need like 8 and a charger..
#9
Cheap but good charger anywhere?
#10
Need 4 AA's like this and a charger for my 360 controllers :O
#11
Sob, I wish I saw these earlier. I paid "half price" at Maplin for "ordinary" 4 x Uniross AAA 1000mAh batteries.

Would I need a different charger for these charge retaining batteries? I have a Uniross "Ultra Fast" charger which takes about 3 hours.

You're welcome.

Wandering a bit OT - i was thinking about getting another set of walkie talkies - and the Binatone Terrain 550 s looked a good bet - have you any knowledge of them?
#13
Got these in Asda about a month ago for £2.99. They had both AAA(800mh) and AA(2100mh). It says on the packaging that they can be recharged using any charger.

C and D type batteries have never really been taken as far as AA and AAAs with rechargeables - although its possible to get two with decent capacities for 15 and 20 quid respectively in Maplin with a capacity of about 5000mAh.

All the other C and D types seem to have lower capacities than the recent high charge AAs, and as a result of this normally a battery converter is used to change an AA into the C or D battery. This is basically a big case the shape of the C or D cell that the AA fits inside.

These tend to go for sill prices seeing they are just plastic tubes with a metal contact at one end - but a set with a pretty **** charger and NiCad rechargeables is available for about 8 quid - which you can get quidco on - but I think about four quid postage - so only worth it if you are getting something else.

Its worth mentioning this is only 4 x AA and 4 x AAA - but with 4 x C and 4 x D converters - and a charger.

Details

includes the following:
- 4 x AAA 250mAh Ni-Cd batteries
- 4 x AA 700mAh Ni-Cd batteries
- 4 x C size converters
- 4 x D size converters
Product Codes

THIS IS A GOOD BUY FOR THE CONVERTERS - THE BATTERIES ARE Ni-Cd (not NiMH) AND ABOUT A THIRD TO A QUARTER OF THE CURRENTLY AVAILABLE CAPACITIES - ALSO THE CHARGER HAS NO OVERCHARGE PROTECTION

Is the Asda deal still on? sounds like a better option

These are pretty ideal for cordless phones by the sound of things.

Could be what I am after.

These batteries are fantastic!

I use them in my Nikon SB-400 - a flash gun for Nikon cameras - and the same pair of batteries have been in there since I purchased them around 3 months ago. I've fired off well over 100 shots with the flash on full power (bouncing the flash or using a sto-fen diffuser) and they're still going strong! The flash recharges so quickly with them in. With regular NiMh (2400mAh) batteries, as I was using before, I'd had to have charged them before every shoot (around 4 times over the period) and that's only if I'd remembered to in advance! When i used regular NiMh I'd have to carry around a pair of Nickel AAs as a back-up in case the NiMhs had drained since last use.

These batteries are perfect for devices like cameras where you will go a long time between uses and don't want to have to charge the battery every time.

This price isn't amazing, online prices are there or thereabouts (before delivery) but the fact you can just drop into a screw-fix if there's one near you means not having to pay for or wait on delivery is a bonus. I think I'll get myself another 4 AAs tomorrow! I have 4AAs and 4AAAs already.

I've got C & D type adaptors for my rechargable batteries so I've never bothered to buy those sized batteries. You just slide an AA battery into the adapter and hey presto the size you need without added expense of lots of different sized batteries.

I got my adapters a while ago in B&Q of all places but they are cheap enough on ebay.

Here's an ebay link to D type batteries

ok the url's are not working and I've no idea why, but if you search for battery adapter converter they show up no problem.


and to the C type batteries adapters

Can I also just add, I've never used this seller, it was the first link I found with the adapters in for illustration purposes only - perhaps those a bit more techy minded can put pics of the adapters up for me please (Thanks).

Aldi have size C rechargeables, not sure about D. THink they were £3 for a 2 pack, 3500mah.

Been out of stock at my two closest ASDA stores for a long time. I think this deal was possibly just to get rid of the stock as they're not popular batteries and I'd guess this is because no-one knows much about them or their benefits. Even when I was set on buying them I still didn't know if I could use any old charger or if I needed a special one from the little info I could find.

I've charged Hybrios on my 7dayshop 15 minute charger with no problems.
Hybrios now been in a LED PIR nightlight for about 2 months when usual NiMH batteries give up after about 2-3 weeks.

those 15min and 1 hour chargers scare me, how can it do the job of the overnight chargers in so little time?? :o


great if it does work, and i will look to invest in one

The faster the charge the more they shorten the battery life - so you need to work convenience and damage into the equation.
#29
ah ok, so there is a downside!

i was wondering why they dont just make all chargers the 15min type
#30
This probably deserves it's own post but I will add to this thread but got these today. http://www.wilkinsonplus.com/invt/0229826

I went into Screwfix at lunch time today for the first time ever. I didn't expect an Argos-style catalogue shop!

Anyway, had a thorough look through the relevant sections of the catalogue and didn't find these batteries amongst the others :-(
#32
If you want AA batteries hey rechargeable as well, you cant go wrong with these http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.487 .Ive been very happy with them they just last forever!!!
#33
I've a mate who bought some of them AA Hybrids at Wilkinson's recently .. £4.99 in-store.

Personally I've bought a few packs of these months ago and have been very happy with them (Sorry, not Hybrid, but thought worth a mention):
Rechargeable Ni-Mh Battery - AA Size (2500mAh) - Pack of 4 in FREE Case! - £2.99
http://www.7dayshop.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=777_3&products_id=100592

Also have the AAA from them at similar price. Work 100% fine for me.

I got mine with some nice hard plastic see through holders... (were a few pence extra for me at the time tho), holds 4 batts ... A tip FYI: what I do is leave a small slip of paper in it. On one side I have "Full" .. the other "Empty" ... this way I can tell which ones are charged or not. Just turn it as needed and leave ontop of them :thumbsup:

If you quote the web item number 52426 then they will get them for you next day saving the postage.

Hi, Have been trying to find these batteries, telephoned the Eastbourne Asda which is a very big store, went through to consumer services, they had never heard of "Hybrio Rechargable Batteries by Uniross.
Told them their stores stock them at £2.99 for Four, sorry never heard of them!!! So it was a blank draw.
Will have to go into a Screwfix store and pay 100% more at £3.99 still cheap!!!!! heh,heh.
#36
Homebase was doing 4 x AA Hybrios with a chatger for a fiver instore only.

I think they have all priced dropped by 10% this weekend - so it might be worth a visit.
#37
Went into Screwfix in Eastbourne today to order these batteries, the girl there had never heard of them, gave her the web number she still could not find them. Came home went into Screwfix.com, there they are, phoned Screwfix, but they cannot send them to the Easbourne Store as ordered products in my name for me to collect. Never heard of such nonsense they can only send them to Eastbourne Store not reserved and as soon as the store receives them they might be sold to someone else, you cannot reserve items!!!!!!!.What nonsense, they were most unhelpful..
#38
That seems crazy - its annoying - as they clearly still have stock and its a good price.
