Nice find, heat added for the price! Personally I'd rather go for the Ikea ones...
Varta are a great battery manufacturer.
Varta are well known for car batteries. Those have GOT to be good. So you can buy these with confidence.
Im waiting for the rechargeable ones to drop in price..had some before found them to be better than the duracells i had in terms of life

Apologies voted cold by accident!
I have moved to rechargeable batteries 10 years ago and saved hundreds of pounds.
I've never used screwfix before, and the Chinese characters make me suspicious that it will be shipped from UK... Has anyone used them before?

I use normal batteries in my flash gun. They destroy re-chargeable for some unknown reason. To much hard work i think

My radio controlled wall clock takes 4, also have three remote controls. I'm not going to put in rechargeable batteries in every kids toy.

If using rechargeable batteries in everything works for you then great, I'm a big fan of start charged rechargeable batteries, non rechargeable have their place too IMO.
Not sure r.e. Price but these are also available in your normal b&q stores (not just trade point), they were fun to stack. Iirc screwfix is under the same group as b&q etc

I hate using rechargeable batteries. They don’t work as well after a period of time. And not a long period of time either !!
Worth having some around for those "batteries not included" gift moments.

I usually use pre charged rechargeable batteries in basically everything, i'll use non rechargeable ones in low powered stuff if they come with something (which is fairly common to be fair) but I never buy them. I have rechargeable batteries that are up to 10 years old that still work perfectly to 90+% of their original capacity (a decent charger helps) so for me I feel long term they do make sense. But not everyone wants to mess around with charging them which is fair enough. When you are only charging them say annually it would take a long time to make it worthwhile though.
Varta batteries are great.
If your rechargeables aren't up to spec you are probably using too low milli amp hour rating. (mah) you need it to be over 2000mah to be comparable to something like a duracell battery.

Aldi used to sell yellow ones which were brilliant.
Also 7day shop have really good rechargeables. Like these
Since I converted to using Eneloop rechargeables havent looked back. Still gr8 price for these.

"Rechargeable batteries are great for moderate to high use devices that drain batteries quickly, but they are not cost effective for low current-draw and/or low-use devices — and it is the low current-draw devices that tend to make up the great majority of battery-driven products in the typical home."

If you're near a Clas Ohlson (soon to be closing sadly) they do 8 'Made in Germany' AA's or AAA's for £1.99, works out as 24 for £6

Not saying they're made by Varta but should be great quality and there's a good chance they are...

You get a lot of mA/h power per £1 with the Poundland Fusio Max batteries (4 x AA , or 4 x AAA, or 2 x AA Rechargeable, or 2 x AAA rechargeable - all for a £1 per pack). I use them a lot. They lasted longer than Duracell in independent tests. Apparently the weight of the battery is a good indication of its real mA/h capacity. A lot of those batteries on eBay are fakes.

How about remote controls, surely you dont use rechargeables in those?

Are you using cheap rechargables or low-discharge ones (i.e. Eneloop)?

What an awful article. They don't even have offer any evidence or any substantial argument other than "the payback period is 18months". Demonstration that you can find anything to back up any viewpoint on the web

Good batteries but for the same money you could get 70 ReadyCells from Home Bargains which is much better value.

Are the Home Bargain ones you mention Alkaline or Lithium? If Zinc then a waste of money.
Aldi sell 8 off Alkaline for £1.99 which are decent.

The Home Bargains ones are on the graph above, ReadyCell Alkaline 10 for £1. Also Poundland Kodak Xtralife Alkaline are 6 for £1.

I haven't personally checked for the ReadyCell batteries but someone on a previous thread mentioned them (I will look at the weekend). I did buy a few packs of the ones in Poundland though to go with cheap LED lights last weekend.
