I know it's cheap and I love 7dayshop who are brill, but buying cheap batteries was one of the most expensive mistakes I ever made. Each to their own but not for me, neither hot nor cold.

You must live a very low risk life if cheap batteries were "one of the most expensive mistakes I ever made". Do you trade in batteries on the commodity market or something?

No actually I don't trade in batteries in the commodity market. Cheap batteries leaked ruined some very expensive electrical items I owned.

Sorry to disappoint.

I bought a pack of Costco's own brand Kirkland AA batteries last year and a few of them leaked. Stick to well known brands if you are using them in expensive equipment.

never skimp on batteries and coffee... its not worth it!

OK, I know this is a pretty cheap price per battery, but unless you have a desperate need to use all 40 batteries at the same time, you would be far better off buying these rechargeable Sanyo Eneloops for £6.99:

Or, if you need more than 4, get two packs of these Good-to-go rechargeables for £9.18:

Either option would work out much cheaper in the long run, would last longer and would be better for the environment!

i';ve had a couple of boxes of these batts before and non have leaked. seem to provide a decent amount of life too. had some in my 360 controller for a few months now. granted i dont play an awful lot but i'm sure they've lasted longer than some high capacity rechargables i have, which is saying something for "cheap batteries"

Just go to Poundland and get 11 Kodak AA for £1

44 for £4

These are alkaline batterys, the kodaks zinc chloride one's will take longer to put in than the amount of time they last in anything but very low powered devices like remote controls.

Taken from poundland website see "for low power products"

I've used a lot of Kirkland batteries in the past and never had a problem and find they give pretty good results. Am switching mainly to rechangeables now though.

mymemory have a 3 for 2 offer on UNIROSS batteries. (AA & AAA)

2.79 for pack of 10

got these when they were under £8 a couple months back. great alkaline batteries.
I use them for high-drain devices (like camera flash) and once they're too low for those devices, I stick'em in low drain stuff like remote controls or wireless mice - to ensure they are proper dead before getting rid of them - this makes sure I get the most "life" out of these non rechargeables.

How much does it cost to recharge batteries? Use rechargeable AAs in the wii and 360 stuff but never really given it much thought

I've got a couple of chargers and I tested their power consumption out of curiosity. One of them uses 5 Watts per hour and the other 6 Watts per hour, which works out to well under 1p to fully charge four batteries.

All I know is that some cheap Kodak batteries I got along with something else to be able to get free delivery ended up leaking and ruining my PS3 blu ray remote, after that I decided to only stick with rechargables. Not voting either way.

I beg to differ, slightly, you might feasibly get a nice bottle of cheap red but you must *NOT* scrimp when you buy white. Cheap white is like paint stripper.

BTW +1 more who has had the Poundland Kodak batteries leak, it's a false economy.
