Buy rechargeables, avoid landfill!
+ delivery
Is there any code for free delivery? Shame that delivery charge goes up with the order value
No way to get around delivery but you can knock down the delivery to 99p by adding a free delivery item from here bigpockets.co.uk/fre…php hope that helps (HEAT ADDED BTW)
My turn to mention that 8 alkaline AA batteries are 95p at Wilko.

A good set of rechargables is £5 (7dayshop) to £8 (eneloops) for a set of 4. To buy 80 would cost between £100-£160.

That's why.


P.S. I only have rechargables
I use to buy rechargeables but kids kept losing them or leaving them in toys. Thanks OP!
You need to alter the price to £13.48

Who has enough devices to need to use 100 batteries at a time?

16 2000mah rechargeables are £21.99, good enough for 1000 charges so that works out far far cheaper overall than 80 of these for half the price.

I do. I have 40+ AA's in use at the moment

So you can buy no branded, more expensive batteries and you have to travel to fetch them?
Thanks for sharing that valued treasure of information.

depends on their use, rechargeable batteries are only 1.2v and not 1.5v so not ideal for certain applications e.g torches, radio's etc.
Bigpockets? Wow, now there's a blast from the past.

Ni Zi rechargeables are available rated as 1.6v for those kind of uses now.

at extortionate prices and questionably quality, I'll stick with these 14p a pop throw away ones for the time being
Wasn't aware bigpockets were still in existence.
Voted hot.

This is a fantastic bargain. £11.99 for 80 Energizer batteries and 90 Garcinia Cambogia capsules.

Thanks OP.

The Ikea ones actually come out very good in tests, better than some "branded" batteries, are marginally cheaper than the ones in the OP's post after delivery is added on and I, like quite a few people, live near to an Ikea. Of course I could buy them mail order and wait in all day for them to arrive. I will consider it. Considered, no thanks. Thanks for sharing your information.
The Ikea batteries seem to have a higher capacity than the Energiser by about 33%.

Ditto same here, packed in two's with not for resale printed on the battery, with same expiry date Mar 2015!
And the same here. Mine arrived in cellophane packs of two, some loose, and only one had the date stamp where it should be which was March 2015. The rest had an etched date stamp on the side, some of which were illegible but most of which were 2013. Not sure if they're even legitimate Energizers as on the Energizer website it clearly states that the expiry date will be printed clearly at the top of the battery. Most likely fakes.

Has anyone had any luck with a refund yet?

Still waiting for a response from Big Pockets, cant see any problem truly mis-sold.
You lot sound surprised. Big Pockets has a history of taking the peace out of customers. It has been in liquidation at least once, and has/had links with that other Boffer bunch of naughty chimps.

I hope you paid by Paypal, as it seems to be the only way of ever getting a refund (based on previous experience) - they will use every trick/excuse in the book (expect to hear "well, we didn't mention anything about expiry dates in our advert and the batteries still hold some charge. You purchased batteries, we sent you batteries. Now go away.")

And before anyone mentions Trading Standards, the Big Pockets / Boffer brigade will just laugh at you. Think of them as the internet equivalent of Del Boy, but without the personality, charm and charisma
Actually, the photograph on the advert showed an expiry date in 2018. They were listed as brand new with full manufacturers warranty.
have now for a returns label!
That's shocking. Truly shocking. Seem's they are trying to screw people out of money because not everyone would go through the hassle of sending the batteries back
BigPockets apologized and said it was an error at their end by sending old stock. They sent me a free return postage slip, asked me to return them and resent me batteries that are in date until 2017, all done very quickly too. I have to say that I can't fault their customer service, they sorted out the problem very quickly and without any fuss.

So they did their legal requirement and nothing more by sending the correct product - caused hassle to you (to chase them and send outofdate batteries back) and took extra time to deliver the right product.

Yep. Can't fault their service.
