Ive just purchased a toy that will prob get a lot of use and go through batteries quite a bit.

Its uses 6 x D Batteries. And im looking for the cheapest/best way to run this...

I dont really want to go down the D rechargeable route as it would mean that i would need to buy a charger... unless there is a cheap one going.

I have found an A to D convertor but im not sure how good these would be, there seems to be two types. The first holds 2 AA bateries into a D size, and the second holds 1 AA battery into a D size. Anyone have any experience of these.

Comments welcomed.

Thanks and +rep to all that help.

I was going to ask if you've made a purchase from the Ann Summers sale :w00t:

There are a bunch of reviews on the Rayovac universal charger here

I'd say don't skimp on cheap batteries from poundland or your other local discount store.
Batteries are one of the items where the brand and price does relate to the quality of the product.
I recommend Duracell (Plus if you can) for normal single-use batteries.
I don't really have any experience with rechargeable ones but you should start with using a single-use set, see how long they last (eg. a week) and how often you'll need to buy the batteries (eg. every week). Then you'll be able to see if you'll benefit from buying a recharging kit, which will have a large set up cost but may save you money in the long run.

I have tried these AA to D battery converters from Maplins (L65AQ) and they are rubbish, not because of the converters themselves but the problem is the capacity of the AA batteries.
I ran a ghetto blaster needing 6 Ds on them and they lasted less than 20 minutes.

The dealextreme ones look a bit better taking 2 AAs.

I personally would get rechargable Ds, Aldi and Lidl do them sometimes for about £2 per pair and a charger/discharger for £4, but you have to get them quick when they have them as they are popular.

£2 for a 4 pack is pretty good!!! cheapest ive seen. Did you use rechargeables in them or single use?

SVP is worth a look - best value is Memorex alkalines for 38p each, they also have Duracell alkalines for 75p each, Fujitsu alkalines 64p each, Verbatim alkalines for 50p each and Fujitsu zinc-chlorides for 23p each but the memorex are clearly best value for money...

Rechargeables, 1700mAh NiiMH AAs bought from Aldi the last time they had them on offer @ £2.00 for 4
