Yes, and they are a quid, so they will do for whet i bought them forie powering high power useage kids toys.

No they wont do - they are low capacity so wont last 5 minutes before needing to be charged up

A waste of a £1

I have used these before and they work well for the price. Plus at this price you can afford to buy a couple of extra packs so you can continue to use items while the others are charging.

Considering good quality batteries are around £4-5 for a four pack and these are £2 for four by the time you've bought a 'couple of extra packs' wouldn't it be better just to buy the decent ones in the first place for about the same price? Just a thought!

I have 4 of the AAA batteries in my Keysonic keyboard
They work OK and have give good service over the last 6 months.

That said - they cost £1 for 2 from poundland - so £1 for 2 is the standard price -not a HOT deal!

Depends on the mAh of them. The ones in poundland tend to be around 800mAh which is very low power. Great for TV remotes, but not for anything high powered. Bought some 2900mAh ones from 7dayshop for just over £4 for 4 and they last for ages powering stuff that drained Duracell Ultras in a few hours...it's a camera in case you're wondering

Nah, no NiMH batteries are really ideal for TV remotes, standard ones (like these) self discharge too quickly (c. 1%/day) so need charging too frequently. Low self-discharge NiMH (Eneloop etc) batteries solve the problem but then due to the cost of them you'll probably die before you've saved the cost of the equivalent disposables! Alkaline all the way for low drain applications!

You'll die before you've saved the cost of the equivalent disposables? That makes no sense at all. Eneloop batteries aren't that expensive! Uniross do a version of them too think they are branded hybrid or something, bought 4 of them from mymemory ages ago for a few quid. Even eneloop are only £7-8 so two packs of disposables and you're even. Lmao

The AAA ones are 350mAH - one third capacity of typical AAA rechargeables. If the AA ones are similarly low relative to typical AA capacities, then they will be similarly crap

I think these are low self-discharge though not very powerful ones - it says 'pre-charged ready to use' on the packet also i've had some in a remote for over 6 months and they're still working.

Where the heck are you buying disposables for that price, can't believe anyone on HUKD would pay 4 quid for disposable batteries!!!! Personally I stocked up on these over a year ago:

http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/philips-alkaline-aa-batteries-4pk-4/639722

(obviously not a current offer but good deals on alkalines are frequent enough on here), averaged 34p/pack of four inc. postage. 7DayShop have Eneloops for £5.35 which is a decent price for them and so for that money I got 62 alkaline batteries. TV remotes usually take two batteries so I can change them 31 times if they last 3 years each (rather pessimistic I've known remote batteries last as long as the appliance they control). So that's 93 years worth then, yep odds on I'll be dead in 93 years time! ;-) (OK I cheated a bit as a it's a four pack of Eneloops so you'd have two spare to use for something else but if you take into account buying the charger, electricity costs, the fact you have to pay 'up-front' and the point still stands).

looks gud offer..... but skeptical about its working....

The double A ones are 800mAh.

Pretty good price for disposable batteries. I stand partially corrected, partially because I would just like to ask one further question - What is the expiry date on the batteries you stocked up on for the next 93 years?

Heheh like your thinking! The expiry dates are in 2013 (although alkaline tend to outlast their expiry dates quite well) but as you can probably imagine I do own more than one thing that takes AA/AAA batteries so I can use my 93 years concurrently!
