I've been stung by these before; they're really poor quality & not worth buying.

There definitely cheap but I wouldnt put them in anything I was bothered about. Are they zinc chloride.

Yup. Two in a small torch lasted 6 minutes!!
(I got some 'B' size also that were incapable of powering a small motorised toy car)

Don't waste your money on these. i havn't found anything that they last long in. They lasted only a few minutes in a torch and less than a week in a tv remote, and the radio that i tried them in wouldn't even switch on, just no power.
They may be cheap but if they don't work they are very expensive as a bin filler.

Had these too and they are like using old used batteries. Save yourself £1.99 and pick your batteries out of the recycle bin at the supermarkets. There are plenty of other cheap decent quality batteries around such as kodak.

use rechargeables where possible

i've used these on my xbox controllers and they last for weeks. good quality

Judging by other peoples opinions.. your VERY lucky. From what i can see, your better of buying a play and charge kit - pointless buying batteries.

NO...............................

Must admit the money would be better spent towards rechargables, the new stay charged type can be recharged 1000 times and every charge would hold much more power than these......so 60 crap batteries for £1.99 or around £3.99 delivered for 4 high power batteries you can use 1000 times each?

There was some crappy program (gadget show, one show, type) on before xmas that was comparing the cheap stuff from cheapo shops with the leading brands. One of the tests was on batteries and they worked out that although the cheaper ones didn't last as long they offered better value for money as even if you changed them a few times per branded battery they still didn't cost as much.

I know the tree huggers won't be happy with that, and I personally use eniloop types, but it is worth considering.

I used to have to keep some normal batteries in the draw as my old style NIMH's were always flat when I wanted them, but the new style Eneloop/Hybrio style hold their charge so can be charged and kept.
