You can get 4 x 1000mAh rechargeable batteries - AND a USB charger (takes 4x AA or 4xAAA) for less than the price of the batteries alone (which cost £4.99 as the lowest price on Google Products - compared to £3.99).

Play.com are selling the same battery and charger set for £6.99 - so 57% of that price here.

Why not get four sets to avoid paying postage and use your match voucher to drop it to £13.46 for 16 batteries and four chargers (enough to encourage a friend to start using them perhaps, with one of your extra chargers?)

Or handy on its own to get you over the fifteen quid free postage threshold.

The £13.46 price with delivery gets you enough AAA batteries to last the next five years and compares well to the 'best price on google' of twenty quid excluding delivery (from Misco).

The chargers are not great at all, but you could buy ths just for the batteries and give the chargers to Oxfam or something. Good deal.

Thats exactly what I was thinking too - why put extra needless power through your motherboard?

However - they would work in the many USB car charger sockets that have appeared recently - or if you go camping - you can get a quick boost in an internet cafe.

£1.49 delivered with Prime and HUKD voucher.. great price!

Can't find the vouchers.

Good post

1000mAh isn't very much... I wouldn't recommend these for any high drain devices like digital cameras

this was already posted some time ago...

Have to agree with andyroo, ... 1000mAh isn't that good for digital cameras ... don't know what you would use these for...

What about Wiimotes? :thinking:

Thats 1000mAh for AAA guys, not AA, so its quite a good rating

dont like those USB chargers though

What are you talking about that is a excellent rating for AAA batteries.

Bingo. Someone got me the charger set for Xmas (which needs AAAs) but I haven't got batteries yet as I already had AAs which I just used directly in the wiimote. Now I can use the charging stand AND these make a great filler for my £11.99 Classic Controller.

What are you talking about that is a excellent rating for AAA batteries.



So would 2 of these last longer in the same device (Wiimote?) than 2 1000mAh AAs? Or is it just the fact that it's harder to find AAAs with as much charge?

1000mAH is very good for AAA batteries. And most digital cameras don't even use AAA batteries so that argument fails.

I concur...there are a lot of misinformed spammers about....they really ought to check their facts before spouting off.

1000mAH is *EXCELLENT* for AAA batteries (note the 3 AAAs)

the reason why these are good in a wiimote is that wiimote charging stands ususally replace the AA batteries with AAA ones due to space constraints and 1000MAh would be good for that. I have mine on 750mAh and they've never run out of charge when needed.

1000mAh is currently the highest rating from any mainstream AAA battery manufacturer. Its triple A not AA/mignon that you are thinking about which currently has a max rating of about 2800mAh from a mainstream manufacturer (although you will find ones on Ebay probably claiming you can replace your car battery with them :whistling: ).

I have these batteries already - and use them in my...

bike lights
torch
PMR radios

They are high capacity but the type that will lose a lot of charge in a month if not used. So they are best for high drainage situations, where the power will be drained by high usage demand rather than time,

So they are NOT useful for things like...

clocks
calculators
vibrating razors
Braun 'humming birds'

...basically things where they would be drained by time rather than by usage.

For this type of thing you would be far better using 'eneloop'. 'ready charged', 'hybrio' types, which are rechargeable - but are charged when you buy them. This type can keep about 70% of its charge if unused for a year.

The best deal I found on this type is posted here.

If you want to use batteries for bikelights for a bike you dont use often, or with very low powered lights - then this is the best type to use.

Cheers.

I am in Scotland - there are none here - so I had never heard of them.

I replaced the ones in my Cordless landline phones. Ideal. They only had 600mAh in them originally.

Dooh... :thinking: You wont find AAA's in a camera. These are great spec. A typical panasonic corless phone would come with 750/850 mah, so great spec. Havent checked the prices yet, but seems a bargain.

Anyone know a good deal on a charger which will turn itself off once batteries charged coz i had one of these and i'm pretty sure i killed the batteries quicker than they should have lasted because i overcharged them.

Dunno about pricewise, but I have a Maha MH-C401FS and it is the best charger i've ever had. It has four seperate circuits and each one switches to trickle charge when full. It also has fast and slow charge modes. It's not cheap, but it isn't really very expensive either. About £35 if I remember rightly.
It takes any combo of AA or AAA, half drained or empty, it charges them properly.

If you look for one that says 'delta V' it does roughly what you say.

You may be able to revive the batteries if buy a charger that will condition them too - but these cost about 40-50 quid - they will also tell you on an LED display the actual numerical capacity of a battery.

The three main forms of protection in chargers for AA/AAA etc are temperature sensing - delta V - and timers.

Currently i think the best bang for your bucks for a AA/AAA charger is this...

You can also get about 2% quidco.

btw, I forgot to say. The only UK Maha supplier I found when I bought mine was Nevada Radio.

I am pretty sure the MAHA charger you refer to is also sold under the 'La Crosse'.

Additionally - I think at least one is also sold labeled as the Maplin Professional Charger.

There is also a supplier called 'component shop' who lists simliar chargers.

]http//ww…uk/

Their postage is pretty low - but some of the batteries they sell seem to have quiet enthusiastically claimed capacities.

However, I have wondered if, as they are selling chargers that display capacities bundled with these batteries - that the claimed capacities may be accurate.

Here is their La Crosse charger showing battery capacities...

OK, I didn't know Maplin sold the Maha/Powerex stuff. They didn't when I bought my one. Cool.
Proof that there are better options than Uniross (at a price)

You can get double discounts from Maplin - one lot from Quidco - and another discount by registering your email for their offers/deals/vouchers - which when the two are combined normally works out at a discount of 10-13% on sales over 30-40 quid.
