Never! tis the season to get wasteful
Thanks - reminded me to order some.
Get some re-chargeables.
Anyone used these batteries before?
Any codes for free p&p?
Free p&p if you spend more than £6.00. And I use these batteries all the time without problems.

Yes. Both AA and AAA. I don't think they are all that good, they don't seem to last as long as the GP batteries I usually buy from CPC (and which don't cost a great deal more).

Funny, on another CPC thread (about batteries) someone didn't rate the GP batteries!

I should definitely have read the description better this morning on the OP. Thanks - ordered aaa plus cable ties.

I have no experience of either brand, was just pointing it out, as I'd actually like to know if these are decent!

They're supposed to have a 6 year shelf life and I imagine they'll be a mid range alkaline battery, most alkaline batteries are fairly similar in performance in day to day use so don't expect these to be much different. So many battery brands don't actually make the batteries these days it's hard to know what to recommend.

These aren't GP batteries, but to be honest GP Ultra batteries get a decent review and I've not had issues with them. I don't know who actually makes these Pro Elec batteries though, that is a CPC brand name they use on their own products.
It appears that these are not bad, but are subject to wide performance variation:

Interesting, thanks for that info.

Interesting, thanks for that info.


Also interesting is when you click that graph above and get to reading, there's a bit where the author mentions cost per mWh (with another graph) and a specific mention to the Proelec Ultra that if bought on sale ( as he said he did) then it "would jump to first place by a significant margin on that alone"
