Not a bad price, for a lot of batteries. :-)

Good price for a lot of batteries. I've only ever had GP ultra, I wonder what the 'real world' performance difference is between the 'Ultra' and these 'Super'

Yes, bought a load of these from cpc a while back. A lot of the AAAs leaked so I wouldn't buy them again. As someone else mentioned, the maplin ones are decent and very reasonable when half price.

1. Millions are just thrown in the bin and end up in landfills

2. The energy cost of production + recycling has a massive carbon footprint.

Performance of rechargeable batteries vary massively between different makes/models.

95p for 8 in Wilko. Excellent batteries and that's their usual price.

​remotes need to be manufactured differently, so they can be charged with a usb. this is the case for a TV airmouse I have, and it is easier to plug it in than try and find working batteries, and it can be used while it charges.

For high drain applications any modern rechargeables are always better but for low drain applications use the pre charged rechargeable which are a special kind of low self discharge rechargeable.

Tripe. Rechargeables run out ridiculously fast, even the cheapest batteries last double treble time of rechargeables. Good ones last 4 5 6 times as long - and the extra you pay for rechargeables is not paid back by lifespan
