Already posted - but good reminder.

Batteries and instant coffee arn't things to cut costs on. Its just not worth it! I have no doubts that 4 of these beasts wont power a digital camera for more than 3 mins

a couple of these last a good month or two in 360 controllers, so i think that's decent enough.

voted hot, although i'm sure this is the normal price they've always been for years.

Reasonable assumption but wrong! These are decent alkalines, not like the hopeless poundshop ones. As per previous post on these, IKEA batteries have come out very well in independent tests and were shown to be best value at former price of £1.99. At 99p they are exceptional.

rubbish better than poundland tho

No, they were £1.99 for years.

There's a lot of ill informed, misleading opinion being expressed in this thread.

you mean batteries and coffee

bought these before and would NOT buy again. so there!

Bought these yellow things about a month ago. Utter garbage, would not even power up the wii controller.

Be warned these are REALLY crap batteries - definately no good for wiimotes and xbox controllers as you'll get 2 weeks max with infrequent use. I popped 2 in my digital camera and the camera shutdown after taking 8 pictures! It's always better to spend a little more for reliability and get Duracell's etc as there are lots of offers i.e. 2 packs for the price of 1 at this time of year and remember, when things are cheap it's always due to a reason - in this case very short lifespan! Whoever said you can get 2 months usage out of an xbox controller with these is talking out of their ar$e!

Even at 10p each these are phenominally expensive compared to the equivalent in rechargeables - and that's before factoring in the trips to Ikea to get them!

Will still stick with Duracells.

Ok for remotes and not a lot else, bought some awhile ago, lasted a couple of pics in my digi cam, moved over to rechargeables now and the worst of those are better than these.

I don't understand why everyone is being negative - I have used these in many gadgets and never had a problem. (wireless keyboard, Wireless Mouse, Wii remote, wii balance board. Remote control Helicoptor....

Just popped out to get three packs as I am not far from Ikea in Leeds, perfect for all Christmas toys I will need them for

I'm being negative because instead of "just popping out" to make a special journey to buy batteries at 10p a pop, you could have stayed in and recharged your rechargeable batteries at less than 1p a pop!

I have to say that in spite of owning about £100-worth of Rechargables (including Hybrio-type), I keep going back to Pound shop Alkalines at between 16p and 25p a pop and find they last longer than a rechargable and do not go flat when they are not being used! Admittedly, I've never bought these Ikea ones before but got 20 AAs and 20 AAAs on Friday. If they're crap then I'll never buy them again - but I'd be surprised if they have a tenth of the life of a Duracell costing a Pound.

I don't know why there is so much negativity towards these. I have been using them for years in all manner of applications and found them to be rather good. At this price they are brilliant!
