and get good reviews


I can only see two of questionable quality, can you point me to any more? I once bought a large quantity of cheap Rayovacs on the basis of the good "reviews" and they were awful.

I'm always on the look out for cheap packs of decent AA's as emergency backups to rechargeables.

Buy Instant/Hybrio/ReCycko/Inifium new technology rechargeables that KEEP their charge, and you do not need the backups, save a fortune and stop wrecking the planet as a positive side effect.

Vapextech Instant are usually the best buy info at http://www.vapextech.com/instant.html

http://www.vapextech.co.uk to buy them £5.40 for 4xAA or less

Good deal for Alkaline's, but as the above poster says LSD (Low Self Discharge) rechargeable's make the most sense.

I can personally recommend Sanyo Eneloop and GP Recyko's a sgreat LSD's.

I would like to add another vote for vapex batteries - i have about 16 of these, and use them in everything from cameras to wii remotes. They are great for items you use a little, over a long period of time. Even after 3 months, they haven't discharged.

I bought a batch of Kodak batteries which were rated highly - but they turned out to be a load of cr*p

Slightly fewer batteries (16) and slightly more expensive (£2.50 for delivery makes it £6.49) - but you can get Duracell Plus AA here:

http://shop.eurobatteries.com/duracell-plus-battery-pack-plus-free-p-3057.html

Also - for those with kids (i.e. lots of toys with different size battery needs!) I also used Eurobatteries to purchase a few of these: http://shop.eurobatteries.com/pifco-battery-and-converter-kit-p-2748.html

It's 4 AA rechargable batteries with C and D convertors for £4.11 !

I also ordered some AAA rechargable pifco batteries and there weren't in stock so eurobatteries "upgraded" them to more expensive AAA rechargables at no cost. Can't argue with customer service like that :)

Not saying these are better than the current deal - just offering some alternatives to people.

They look like another hybrid battery clone.

I have about 80 Vapextech AA Instants and they are excellent. But it is always useful to have "throw-away" alkalines in reserve and there are applications where I wouldn't want to waste expensive batteries. For example in electronic toys that my kids have grown out of and I hand down to friends and relatives children or pass on to charity shops.

Vapextech are apparently a high volume OEM battery manufacturer who have now moved into also selling there batteries under there own brand name.

They have obviously licenced the nimh instant battery technology and I suspect, though I can't find proof, that they may make instant batteries for more well known brands. I think it would be interesting to compare the physical appearances of various makes.

hi guys, do you know if 2100 mAh is the max for the hybrio type of batteries still?

As far as I can tell.

Thing is, they perform better than original type 2100mah rechargeables, and barely behind 2800 ones I have, but with all the other benefits - so in effect I haven't found any drawback to this type, so for that reason alone I won't be buying any more standard NiMH.

As for comparing brands, the pragmatic approach serves me well in most things, and is usually how I sort out what I will or won't buy - they are half the price of some brands, and yet offer little VISIBLE drop in performance from brand names, therefore paying about twice as much for what may only be a small potential technical benefit doesn't stack up, whatever those technical measurements may be, they clearly aren't TWICE as good and the lower initial outlay adds up to something too.

ok thanks... yeh I have been buying hybrio type batteries for my logitech harmony remote control and they last about 4 months in there which is pretty good considering the screen on the remote.....

Cold - MX2 Kodak Max batteries are excellent and only £3.99 for 24.
