4xAA JCB rechargeable batteries, 1200mAh NiMH - pre-charged at Home Bargains for £3.99

Went to Home Bargains and came across these JCB batteries.

4x AA's with 1200mAh capacity, and a low self discharge "Holds power after 3 years of standby" apparently.

Been keeping an eye out for some to replace the crap NiCad's in my cheap solar lights in the garden.

1200mah capacity on AA rechargeables is just laughable now.

Yes, I have some 2400 li-ion at home but this is for a set of solar lights which currently have 400mAh nicad's in them, also only £3.99

Well that's strange, I searched for 'batteries' 'rechargeable' and 'NiMh' and only came up with 1 result for 850mAh batteries? I try to check before posting but if you could send me the link to the batteries then I can have a gander and get some

pointless putting these in solar lights, they will never fully charge. better to get the 2 pack from poundland.

I thought you could charge at any time with Nimh? Is it only Li-ion? If so I'll take a look at poundland, just need to get some damn lights on int he garden

They were more likely AAA, but even they do 1000. The AA's go up to at least 2900 as I have some.

When I search I get a good few hotukdeals.com/sea…ble

The ones I found on here were 850, I know they do more powerful, I thought this site was about the price and availability?

I'm sure I've seen 3200mah in aa.
I got the 2300's from lids 8 pack for £5 which is obviously a better deal although not on now. Usually I average around £1 per battery but wouldn't buy 1200's for that

they will fully charge in a mains charger, but the solar cells on those lights will only give you so much charge per day, then drain at night when they come on. That is why you only ever see 600mah in these solar lights

No just a far better one from 7dayshop.

These are great batteries for kids toys, remote controls, even emergency Xbox controller batteries. I have stacks of them in the house for kids stuff. Cheap, so not the end of word if they get thrown out by accident, charge in no time (probably in part due to their low capacity).
These are no Panasonic eneloop extreme but then they are also not £10+ for 2.

They are £3.99 a pack. A quid each and will last years.
