8 Kodak Xtralife Alkaline AAA batteries for £1 in-store in Poundland. 10 year in storage guarantee.

Found 12th Nov 2014
These batteries were already good value at 6 for £1, but today I got an 8 pack for the same price in Poundland. I bought the last pack at my local store, but check in yours as I imagine this is a nationwide offer. If not, still getting 6 for £1 is good value.

These alkaline batteries are not to be confused with the far inferior zinc chloride batteries that Poundland also sell in 12 packs. Alkaline lasts about four times longer so are far better value.

Of course, cheapest of all is to get decent rechargeables especially now the pre-charged low-self-discharge type are available.

Can't remember whether it was AA or AAA but this was on here a few weeks ago

So basically, all alkalines are pretty similar so there is little point in paying loads more money rather than these Kodaks.

Lithium are a better technology, but far more expensive.

this should be very hot ... people r dummies lol

I think people are getting a little confused and think that these are the Zinc Chloride batteries also marketed under the Kodak name (normally 10 + 1 but in some stores 10 + 6). Alkaline is much longer lasting and 8 for £1 is a good deal. I bought 3 packs of the Zinc Chloride (48 batteries) for £3 which, for occasional use in radio, were more suitable for me.

I think the graph represents AA batteries. What's on offer here are AAA batteries, but I guess you can apply the same concept to both.
Hey they are 8 X AAA ALKALINE batteries for a quid - come on guys what's there not to like, surely that aint so bad? PS - I love LSD batteries, but even I would probably buy a set of these to have in... It's a quid!

I got some of these saturday, a very good buy. They also have the Kodak Alkaline PP3 battery ( the square one used in smoke alarms ) This time only one for a pound but good value for Alkaline.

That's an interesting chart. I buy these regularly at 6 for a pound, but always presumed they were nowhere near as good as Duracell or whatever. Seems I was wrong and there's not much difference.

I saw the PP3 too, another good deal when you think Currys sell a Duracell for £3.97 and claim that is a special offer price!

Absolutely loads of cold voters, I am just waiting for them to post a better deal than an alkaline battery for 12.5p.

If these are the Alkalines then this is a bargain.

There was a battery deal earlier this year for some decent Alkalines at Asda. It got voted cold with loads of comments about zinc chloride batteries being rubbish. None of them had read the title where it clearly said alkaline.

I got a pack for peanuts, absolutely brilliant.

Good deal, well timed for Christmas. Heat added.

Yep, definitely alkaline. The pack says 4 free instead of the usual 2 free.

Have some heat, good price

thanks Mark

It's time Zinc chloride batteries were banned.
They are very poor and use up a lot of the
earth's resources when there are much better
batteries available at lower cost.
I will not be voting for the Green's though.

I think at least they should be made to label them honestly in the modern market. "Heavy duty" and "Extra heavy duty" are misleading descriptions for the cheapest type of batteries that last hardly any time at all. Even for smoke detectors I'd go with alkaline these days when you get get alkaline PP3s in Poundland.
