watch out these aren't the full strength ones, they are basic version. get yourself 10 of the Duracell procell ones full strength and around the same price

I remember saying something similar about the England players during the World Cup.

My guess is that these and Procell are exactly the same (i.e. both equally crap) apart from the packaging. Having used Procell and Duracell at work and at home for years, they seem to perform roughly the same - although I've had many more Procell batteries leak than anything else, but that might just be coincidence.

Not a bad price if you want Duracell but batteries have moved on and these days Duracell offer poor value for money and rely on the premium brand name without delivering a better battery than anyone else. IMO, the best shop bought deal is currently the Kodak batteries in Poundland. The IKEA ones aren't bad either but more expensive than they used to be. On-line, Maplins are pretty good (100 for 14.99 delivered).

Voted hot as I doubt they are cheaper elsewhere on the high street.

nope not the case, Procell are the industrial (no idea why they call them that :)) version of the normal copper top ones, these are the simply ones new cheap version.

Yes, these are the less powerful Duracell batteries. Now sold in the pound shops.

Simply Duracell
Duracell products: Simply Duracell batteries

Provides the quality consumers can expect from Duracell at an affordable price. Best used in low to moderate-drain devices (radios, remotes and clocks)

On second look, I took the word 'simply' as part of the description rather than the name of the product - my comments were based upon comparing Procell to regular Duracell rather than 'Simply Duracell'.

Looking on the website they seem to have changed the name recently - I think Procell are now known as "Industrial by Duracell". IMO, the Procell ones I used were still crap though. Ruined my expensive to replace TV remote and a couple of my kids toys... Originally used them because I could buy them ridiculously cheap through work (about £2.40-2.60 for 10) but turned out to be a false economy. Didn't have the same problem at with acid leaking when using at work as they were changed daily.

tl;dr - you are correct but I still think Duracell are poor

First got into the procell ones after seeing them on here used about 30 without issues but the are slightly more expensive now normally nearer the £3 mark and find they last better than the ultra versions.

With all of these things nowadays they are even faking batteries have to be careful where you get them from, Amazon sellers or ebay with high feedback, not saying yours were fake just adding for anyone reading. :)

Bought through NHS supplies so hopefully not fake... but didn't realise this was a thing oO - will have to watch out.

Have used literally thousands of Procell AA and AAA batteries at work over the years - mainly in medical devices, for example 24 hour BP monitors. Each monitor takes 4 AA's and they must be renewed every use (i.e. every day) as patients get quite irritated if they have to repeat the test because the batteries ran out part way through.

Flirted with rechargeables for a while but had too many issues. We use the Varta equivalent of Powercell now - very happy with them, no leaks and about the same price. Tend to use Ikea or Maplins at home.

The 4 packs of simply duracell were in poundland, pound world and 99p store last time I looked. They are no better than any other cheap alkaline battery. So I would save money and either get the 6 packs that the poundland /home bargains sells or the 8 packs that are in Halfords for £1.
#21
Think you will find only 8 for 2:99 so crap deal cold very cold for false info
#22
Not a deal as poundland have 8 Kodak Xtralife for a £1 which have been proven to offer around 40% more life than these.
