Procell batteries are not as good. But the 16 Duracell Plus offer from various reliable Amazon marketplace traders is frequently available at below £4.50. (I paid £4.40).

They are the same, made the same, packaged differently, and advertised less.... ah well, guess you wanna buy what you wanna buy.....

Massively overpriced when compared to rechargable!
If you are likely to get through 24 AA batteries you might want to consider buying rechargable batteries and a recharging unit, I've been using the same set of rechargable AAs with a recharging unit for years and each recharge costs a few pence, though I recycle my non-rechargable batteries many others end up in landfill.
There is a greener and cheaper alternative so its pretty difficult to make an economic case for non-rechargable batteries at any price...

You can get 8 enloop rechargeables for similar money which will last hundreds of charges, have similiar capacity and maintain there charge for months when not used.

It makes no economic sense to buy non rechargeables aside for being terrible for the enviroment.

If you dont care about the enviroment fine, but try and show some basic common sense and save some money, quite alot of money actually over the life of the batteries.

Would either of you two care to provide some links for good re-chargers and batteries? I'd quite like rechargeable but haven't got a clue which sets to go for.

Voted hot as i love instant disposable batteries and hate the rechargeable brigade

Great deal. Thanks.

You can't really go wrong with 7dayshop Good To Go - these are the hybrid type (like Eneloop/Hybrio which are fine as an alternative). Any charger that does that sort of cell will be fine but I don't recommend the super-fast ones which claim to charge in less than an hour. As a good starter, just get this - four cells and a charger for exactly the same price as the heap of chemical waste which is this deal - you'd be idiotic not to.

An alternative is the AA Energizer Ultimate packs of 8 @ Argos for £2.29.

Do you have disposable batteries for your mobile as well?

Suggest you read my post again lol

Forgetting environmental concerns why pay 50 times or more for something than you need too ? Makes no sense to me but then some people would argue water is not wet.........

I personally prefer rechargeable batteries. I think the Energizers are pretty good. You can buy them from Home Bargains for around £4-5 WITH the charger which is a great price.
I'm buying these Duracells as sometimes you can run out of charged batteries and these are good for emergencies. Sometimes you just can't wait for hours just so your battery can be recharged.

The brand name isn't important; the type of battery is. I'm assuming the ones you refer to aren't hybrid. Invest in some slightly more expensive hybrid ones, and you won't have to waste your money on disposables even if you leave them for months before you use them. If you mainly use rechargeables you shouldn't need to be buying this number of disposables.

Is the charger & batteries you mentioned on 7dayshop good to use in a camera? Im fed up of buying betteries for it.

Yes - just use these batteries the same way as you would any other. As they are the hybrid type your camera will also still work if you haven't used it for months without charging them.

Disposables should be banned.

I get fed up of this argument every time! I love my Eneloop batteries, but I'm not going to waste them by sticking them in a remote control or a clock. Disposables still have their place for me.

Oh I don't disagree; what I don't understand is how you expect to use this many disposables in such applications before they pass their sell-by date.

Think i saw a stand of these in asda 2 for £5

My maths may be bad, but i got (from the same supplier) 16 batteries for 4:99 - seems like a better deal
