Found 23rd Nov 2007
With Christmas just around the corner, batteries are one thing that often gets overlooked. There's nothing worse than not having any on xmas morning, and little Jimmy not being able to play with his new toys!

I spotted these deals on Argos at thought they were quite good.

Works out 80p for 4 Philips ones and £1 for 4 Panasonic ones, which is the equivalent price of some of the own brand supermarket batteries that last 2 minutes. Hopefully these well known brand ones will be good!

The main link is to the Philips ones, and towards the bottom of the page has the link for the Panasonic ones.

Can anyone provide a comparison of battery life. Maybe from Which?

Best in class and last twice as long as the brand leaders apparently. Reviews here:

I'm gonna go out and get a couple of packs in a minute. I know we've got a door bell and at least 1 remote control that dont work because I havent been bothered to buy the batteries yet!

Good spot! Wait for the green brigade to start voting cold though!

Hot and Rep added. Cheers.

Cold because I've used panasonic batteries before and they last a fraction of the time of a duracell... ....or a good rechargeable.

Panasonic batteries are dreadful, the ones from poundland last longer.

not a hotdeal as this is standard argos price for poor batteries so voted cold

Did you know that non rechargeable batteries are one of the most expensive forms of energy you can buy? A quick calculation shows they are approx. 1000 times more expensive per kWh than the typical mains electricity cost! Maybe time to consider rechargeables?

This site has Kodak Max at £3.99 for 12 batteries + 12 batteries for free - a total of 24 for £3.99.
