Ideal in all your everyday electronic devices such as Toys, Audio and Home use etc.
Save money and the environment by using Uniross Batteries, each rechargeable will replace X1000 disposable batteries.
With 0% Cadmium and 0% Mercury these batteries are environmentally friendly

Seems a good price though not sure these batteries would be any good for digital cameras.

Oh and don't forget Quidco for a little bit off.

If I needed a charge and batteries for £5 I get this one - same price but you get 2500mAh batteries

1300mah isnt much nowadays.

That is a good find on 7dayshop NiceButDim. Maybe you should post it.

For info I have discovered the NiMH thing vs mAh isn't so clear cut - here's an exceprt from Green Batteries.com (http://www.greenbatteries.com/batterymyths.html):

'…AA alkaline batteries typically have a capacity rating of over 2,500 mAh and AA NiMH batteries have rated capacities of only 1,200 to 1,900 mAh. But when it comes to actually powering an electronic device like a digital camera, the NiMH batteries will often run the device for three or four times as long.'

I'm getting this for a wireless keyboard and mouse which should be absolutely fine with the 1300mAh as it's a slow but steady drain suited to the NiMH.

I would use good to go type batteries in that situation. very little discharge over time compared to standard nimh.

Thanks gavjbrown, however I need to use these for work at an environmental charity so these tick the enviro box as if I bought a load of standard alkaline batteries I'd be in trouble. What a fun world of batteries hey? ;o)

He means good-to-go rechargeables, like Eneloop, Hybrio, etc. They have typically slightly less capacity than the 2500 - 3000mAh stadand rechargeables (around 2000mAh) but will drain a lot slower when not being used, perhaps 10% a year unlike standard rechargeables which can be about 10% per day in some cases! Hope this helps...

The batteries I'm talking about aren't alkaline and there greener than standard nimh.

Below is the GP version.

Sorry for not explaining what I meant very well.

If you want to be environmentlat freindly, you should consider what i am waiting todo.

Solar usb (cost about 0.99+ £1.30p&p on bay), and a charger(99 + 26 delivery). Thou these only hold 2 batterys.
So might be slightly more expensive, but zero running cost and carbon free mind. :D

I dont have this set but it seems good considering it comes with good to go batteries.

... and that quote is possibly outdated now too, standard NiMH are usually even even higher capacity (to about 2700 PLUS mah), and LSD type although seemingly lower @ 2000 or 2100mah perform better than either!

For a start, 1300mah is simply ANCIENT stock they are clearing out - I think you would be hard pushed to find anything nearly so low capacity being made now, more like 2400 as a minimum in this type!

However, the best for this situation is LSD type, (Eneloop, Hybrio, Good2go, Infinium etc.) without a doubt. Keyboards etc. usually use little power, so the self-drainage will flatten them before you use their capacity, but the LSD type will last ages before you need to recharge them. (I use a set myself in a wireless keyboard & mouse)

Standard NiMH work best when you need higher power for a short period, such as HEAVY use with a camera over a short period maybe like a professional photographer would use. So much so that even ordinary occasional use in that situation you would be better off with the LSD type!
For most situations now, the low self drain of the LSD type means they are as convenient as having disposables.

...you forget to mention they will be so slow recharging this way, that most people will end up not using them, and end up buying disposables instead! As it is that's the excuse most people use for a reason NOT to use rechargeables, hence the LSD type meet everyone's expectations for convenience and ease, as well as lasting and using very little power to recharge

Wow, thanks for all the advice. I'm learning a lot about batteries here and there are some interesting products being linked to which I'll definitely look into.
Thanks people - you've changed the way I...er... power things!
