Found 15th Jun 2011
Went into my local poundworld today and saw Sanjo AA batteries 76 pack for a quid! Also had AAA but only 32 pack..... go figure!

Going back for some tomorrow (queue was massive but had loads of packs and was in a rush so not bought them yet) and will post a pic of receipt and item when I gt in

Hope someone finds it useful, great for the ever running out kids toys!

At this price I don't think I could complain not the worse make.

I can imagine smaller store like ours (Ballymena) won't get them but heat anyway.

these might be toxic
I'd saty away from them

They wont be toxic, they still go through all health and safety checks to be safe for sale. They go through a process called 'jamming' when they are created, apparently these are so cheap because in the country they are developed the acid is left pooring into a mixer for days and various animals are showered in the acid to test for human burn. If they dont burn they increase the acid level... the optimal blend is where "it will burn a rat but not a cat" as stated in a recent press conference.

So in short, they are fine

Might be ok for TV remote but won't last long in a handheld games console or digital camera

Hopefully people will recycle these once used, as otherwise it's a hell of a lot of waste since these won't last long.

oldmanhouse, glad you commented, i was just thinking we needed the opinion of a qualified inspector of batteries......... They will work fine, dont be put off by the price, same as duracell these bad boys!

There is another good use then, soap for kids

I think 72 put together would produce the 1.5 volts a decent single battery would produce. But then it is only a quid!

As an apprentice I was employed to repair electronic goods. One common … As an apprentice I was employed to repair electronic goods. One common repair was remote controls where the owner had left in cheap batteries and they leaked. The test for a cheap batteries was this, if you can squeeze the sides of the battery and deform it, it was crap (Eveready anyone? ) If you use these for children's toys then you should seriously think about what you could be doing. WHEN they leak, the damage to the toy will only be a minor inconvenience. If you value your children's health, don't buy them.



Thanks Mrs Lovejoy.

nice deal shame there is not one near me we have pouldland and 99p shop but not this store

Can't see the point in these do yourself a favour pay the extra for some good ones that will last more than 20 seconds

Dont think the drain on these is as bad as the leaking. Remember in the 80's when all batteries were crappy acid "Everready" type and they leaked and ruined your device? I dont think they are worth the risk. Get decent Alkaline along the lines of the deals on Amazon recently.
