2 X AA Rechargeable 1000mAh PowerCell batteries £1 @ PoundWorld

Found 2nd Jan 2013
Decent mAh, considering Duracells would be around £4-5+ for 4, these seem good value.

Don't know how good they are in the long run. I have not used these myself yet, but the packaging does not suggest they are pre-charged.

Decent mAh



No.
Picked some up (as they were the same price as the AAs - so why not get rechargeable!)

...Only pain in the bum... Unlike other rechargeables - these ones came *UN*charged

I was a very unliked parent on Boxing Day when everyone had to wait around for batteries to charge
Uncharged 1000mAh NiMH AA batteries for 50p each are NOT a good deal.

For comparison charged 2000-2400mAh NiMH with stay-charged technology can be had for around £1.50 per cell (search Sanyo Eneloop as an example on Amazon).

Those alternatives are triple the price but will have near to triple the capacity, will endure many more years and will hold their charge for upwards of 5 times longer.
Only a pound - I wonder what else you can get for a pound at poundworld.

No.



No.

It's so "No" I had to repeat it.

Thought I'd ask seeing as I was reading this thread anyway but why do AAA batteries seem to have half or less mAh?
I need some AAA and couldn't decide what to go for, still can't.

Extreme AAA Rechargeable's

They are just about half the mAh and just about the cheapest AAA's I could find (didn't look too hard), but they seemed to have twice the mAh of the Sanyo Eneloop that I was looking at from your suggestion.
Just wondered which would be the better battery for this size??
Thanks

AAA's are physically smaller.

I couldn't find the Sanyo Eneloop's for the price you stated, the only equal 1000mAh Sanyo's I could see were either £2.30 per battery or £3.99 for 2. The higher mAh Sanyo's were around £5+. Am I looking in the wrong place?
7dayshop.com are usually good quality batteries and good value. I've had their ones for years now - some have died but others are still going strong.

General rule:

AAA's - Don't go for below 800mAh
AA's - Don't go for below 2000mAh

Pound shop batteries aren't worth spit IMHO. The only 'bargain' batteries I would recommend are the Tronic Batteries from Lidl. At around £2.99 for a set of 4 x AA (2500mAh) or 4 x AAA (900mAh) they represent great value and are lasting well. I use them all the time in XB controllers and they last ages before needing a zap!
These pound shop rechargeable batteries aren’t completely useless. I have a couple of 800mAh sets I use in a Microsoft wireless mouse and they last well over two months with daily use. Usually these are super light too so they’re ideal for use in a mouse.

Excellent point about the lightness. I gave up on my logitech wireless mouse as it was just too heavy with a pair of rechargeable AA's in it. Will give these a go.

yes - you're right about that. UNLIKE maplin batteries, these actually do have the capacity stated. My maha charger is pretty good at picking up on made up mAh figures
