Rechargeable Hybrio AA and AAA, Energizer 2.5AH Nimh and torches all @ £1.99 Focus DIY in Store in Chippenham.

Various Energizer torches and rechargeable batteries, Uniross Hybrio AA and AAA batts., all at £1.99 in my local Chippenham store. These were on vertical hangers around the checkouts and in the clearance section, still plenty left. Not sure if it's in all stores, but they were all barcoded at £1.99 so could well be.

Whats so good about the Hybrio's anyway? The only benefit they have is they hold the charge for much longer? Whats the point in that hen the whole purpose is you buy rechargebles for short term use and to be recharged.

Not really, it could be a few weeks between sets of batteries if you use 2 sets. In this instance Hybrio are excellent.

"The only benefit they have is they hold the charge for much longer? " - this is why
they are so good, just try using ordinary rechargeables in a remote or wireless mouse/game controller or torch, they'd be flat in no time. These Hybrios still have 70% charge after a year and no memory effect.

This whole issue and a LOT more has been discussed to death on several threads recently, and most notably HERE:

Rest assured they are a great advance :-)

My local Focus (Glenrothes) had Hybrio batteries in the bargain bin at £7 for 4. I thought it must be a mistake took them to the till and they scanned at £7.

It has been mentioned on other threads, it seems it is very rare to find them at Focus now though :-(

I found them, in a bargain bin, in a tattered packet with a huge £7 sticker on them :?

The Focus in Chippenham is a very quiet store, never anyone in there, could explain why they have plenty left - although I bought the last of the Hybrio AA's on the way back from work. Plenty of AAA Hybrios and Energizer AA.'s 2.5AH left.

No Hybrios where I am :-( good deal had to try :-)
#15
good deal!

I think there is probably a website catering for that sort of thing, might be better than having to explain it all to the local magistrates. Not seen any deals on sheer bodystockings on here before either! :whistling:

In the meantime, you might have to pay a bit more for Hybrio ones, although Vapextech Instant are still a decent enough price!

Will try and look in my local tomorrow. Would love soem of those Hybrio AAAs if not any AAAs will do right now..

What a load of ##### I use standard NiMh in everything including a Sony RMAV3000 which is hungry and drains more than normal controls in standby and I maybe change them every few months.
The problem is mainly the chargers people use they often do a lot of damage to batteries (if your batteries heat up this is very bad!) and one of the first things to suffer is ability to hold charge and capacity.
It ISN'T night and day and certainly not worth sacrificing capacity just because the battery retains charge unless it really is a situation where the battery needs months without access. I cannot think of a single situation here but I will let people buy the new tech and get sucked in just like happened with flat tellies and robosapiens etc... :thumbsup:


I have to add this is a cracking deal for that pack of four tho so HOT from me :thumbsup:

Lucky you.

It isn't my experience, nor the experience of anyone I know. I have a drawer full of very low NiMH batteries at this moment, and not ONE of them hasn't been charged longer than 3 months! Some lose charge quicker than others, and some gear is more sensitive to the drop than others, but down they go.
The reason WHY people give up on rechargeables is because of this, and I can understand that, because until the new technology ones came along, I was buying disposables just about every supermarket trip despite having a LOT of rechargeables.

Roll on more Lithium rechargeables - we all have them in mobile phones, and some sizes are unbelievably cheap now, but more standard sizes are VERY slow in coming, but in the meantime the Hybrio type batteries are a dramatic improvement

Nothing to do with luck, everything to do with the charger you use and charging habbits. That's it!

I have a draw full and I can pull any batteries out and put them straight into something that needs them and they will be fine. My charger takes about 15 hours to fully charge batteries and displays capacity and voltage at the end but they always remain cool to the touch and always behave themselves. I never need alkaline batteries. In fact I have a draw full of Duracels from Christmas that I don't use, mainly because I am worried they might leak...

I am not having a go for the sake of it I am just trying to actually make people realise that perhaps their batteries are acting up for a reason not because they are no good! Saving people money maybe although lol decent chargers are not cheap I do wonder if a few months down the road these same chargers might be screwing these 'miracle' batteries up too?

Exactly as I charge mine, slowly and I have had some for YEARS now, but they ALL still run flat when not used, as even the manufacturers readily admit.
Figures of 4% a day is the sort of rate I have read about, and wouldn't disagree with from personal experience. Why yours don't drop off at this sort of rate is something I have no experience of, no-one on several battery threads seems to have mentioned this enhanced experience either, while several have mentioned the problems they have found with standard NiMH.
