Truly this site has become the advertising department of "Resellers" and their proxies, masquerading as, "members". "Eet was one penny cheaper than yesterday, you know !!!". Sweets and toots, we ALL know - only too well. When you ceased to be certain as to which is your left and which is your right, that's the moment for a right ole shafting of the naive, the unintiated and the addicted. "And every page is a bargain !!!"

Not a good idea to fast charge those.

Best chargers i've seen are from component-shop.co.uk

Their batteries aren't as good value as 7-day-shop, but the chargers are high quality and intelligent - they charge each battery individually and stop charging when they are full.

If you're not in a hurry, wait until they appear at Lidl or Aldi.
Price usually around £2.99 -£3.99.
Sometimes Maplins sell theirs for around £5.

Been toying with buying some of these batteries.
Looks a good price.

For that money, you might as well get the king of chargers Technoline BL700 from batterylogic.co.uk

I bought 7dayshop own brand rechargeable batteries ('normal' ones) in the past and they just plain didn't work. For the couple quid I paid, I didnt even bother returning them. Just learnt not to buy budget brand rechargeable batteries...

It depends which chargers. I bought this from them

7dayshop.com/cat…028

Well it looks exactly like this but this must be slightly different somehow. The performance was terrible and the instructions didn't explain what the buttons/flashing on the unit meant. I didn't realise how bad the performance was until I bought this instead

7dayshop.com/cat…598

Which never seems to be in stock any more.

7dayshop vet reviews. 3 times I tried to put a review up of the first charger I bought from them - which wasn't too bad as I only commented negatively about the instructions but they never put the review up.

When I got the new charger I was getting over 8 hours use from my portable DAB radio compared to less than 2 hours with the first charger.

As for batteries there is always a debate about whether these Good-to-gos are as good as branded types. I've never seen any proper test results for these so have opted for branded. I would be tempted to go for something like these :

amazon.co.uk/UNI…8-8

However, a decent charger will make more difference.

Bought a set of 4 uniross batteries of the same spec with a charger in Maplins Cardiff yesterday for £5. Had a few in stock.

Hi
For approx the same price you can get maplin.co.uk/Mod…189
which are supposed to be quite good.
I bought my charger from LIDL for about £12 so good I bought my daughter one, intelligent charger charges most sizes. BUT do yourself a favour dont buy the rechargeable Batteries from LIDL , absoloute rubbish, they only hold a charge for a day or so.

Ordered thanks! just what i was after!

I'd expect these to die after about 5 charges. Like my Fameart ones did...I'd only buy decent brands now. Energizer ones are 30p more on ebay and a higher spec. Still as strong as day one after a good few charges.

I agree with k9plus1 if you are going to be doing much charging, get the Technoline BL700. It does a great job of keeping your batteries in optimum condition and tells you how much charge each battery has taken.

My only gripe with it is that if a battery is *completely* flat the Technoline will not charge it, you need to put the battery in a non-intelligent charger for a few seconds to get some charge in it so that it is recognised...

The AA ones are £4.99 at Maplin.

It depends which chargers.

Thank you for all that - very comprehensive. Shame that 7dayshop vets reviews - I've had the same problem with dealextreme when I tried to explain in a review how electrically unsafe and generally fake and substandard a lithium cell charger from them was. I too am a victim of the "flashing charger" from 7dayshop - I thought I just had a faulty one.

The Energizers on ebay for that price are normal NiMH recharables, not low self-discharge like these. Likewise I think Fameart only do standard NiMH batteries too so think you are missing the advantages of this type of battery

As for dying after 5 charges, well plenty of people here have been using then for months and personally I find them every bit as good as the eneloop and hybrio - as others say whatever you go for I would recommend investing in a decent charger though, had problems with LSD NiMH in the past when using a fast charger. If you don't want to spend £30 or so on the BL700 (and you should - a good investmentt) then the Duracell CEF23 for about £12-13 (with 4 LSD NiMH batteries included) treats each battery individually, and as a bonus also works as a portable usb charger for phones etc when you are away from mains power which is great for camping, festivals etc

anyone knows if these one can be used to replace the batteries in the laptop batteries?

I'm using this charger. I think it's very good. You can charge individual batteries, which is quite rare among the chargers.

No. Best thing for you to do is to buy a complete replacement battery pack from somewhere like eBay.

That looks very similar to the dreaded "flashing charger", just in a different physical format.

If you are looking for a cheap charger then take a look at the Duracell CEF23 I mentioned (£11.49 on Amazon including 4 LSD NiMH batts or a quid more for one with car charger too)- it's got 4 independent bays, charging terminates properly, plus it has temperature monitoring for safety. Google it and you'll see it's widely recognised on other specialist battery/camera forums as an excellent charger for the price (particularly in the USA where they are discontinued and hard to find). The ability to charge USB devices on the move is a nice bonus too. From what I understand this is the only good Duracell branded charger though.

We've got the Maha MH-C9000 (which was about £50) & Technoline BL700 (£30) chargers at work which are superb and also highly recommended. None of them are fast charger though - if you want to get the most life out of your batteries then you need to accept you'll be waiting longer to charge them but with LDS NiMH that's not such an issue anymore as you can charge at leisure and store ready for use.

Does anyone know if there is much of a difference between the Duracell CEF22 which is £7.40 and Duracell CEF23? Apart from the usb and free batteries.

From what I remember when I looked into it ages ago the CEF22 is a lot bigger as it takes 8 AA at a time and also charges C, D and 9 volt batteries as well - however for some reason it never seemed to get recommended like the CEF23 so I'm assuming it's completely different internally. However that's just guesswork - I played safe and went for the 23 so never had my hands on one so can't say either way if it's any cop or not.

Yeah noticed that a lot on HKUD recently, people have been posting deals that are the same/almost the same within a week of each other. Wish people would do a search first before posting. Means the quality of the deals are getting less and less.

Thanks for the reply. I already have the CEF22, and charged batteries seem to be much cooler than those chargered on my 1 hour charger. Looking at the data sheet, they seem to have the same/similar features such as independent charging, auto cut off etc.

Before I bought the CEF22 I tried to look it up on Amazon.com so I could look at the reviews, but it's not on there. Maybe the CEF22 is not sold/discountinued in the USA.

Anyway I'm happy with my purchase, but looking at reviews the CEF23 looks like a good recommendation.
