Purchased today at Lidl, AA 2400Mah or AAA 950Mah pre charged rechargeable batteries. These out perform my Duracell rechargeable batteries of the same mah. Use them for my nikko RC cars and give much better run time.

Make me wonder, they alway say pre-charged but is battery every sold …Make me wonder, they alway say pre-charged but is battery every sold uncharged?

The useful part isn't just that they're pre-charged but that the batteries are low self discharge. Traditional rechargables lose most of their charge in just a few weeks of sitting unused, which is why they're always sold uncharged - even if they were charged initially, they wouldn't be by the time you bought them. This was a nuisance because when you pulled a set out to use them they were always empty and meant they weren't much good for low-power devices. These are designed to retain most of their charge even if you leave them sitting in a drawer somewhere for a year or so.

Eures GMBH on mine.
i saw these on sunday and didn't have my glasses, I read them as 1400Mah...gutted, hope some left tomorrow. heated
I saw these in my local but couldn’t see the charger unit? Is there a specific one or Can I use any?
Used lidl rechargeables for years never had a problem with them.
Be careful. These batteries are slightly fatter than standard batteries and can be a bit of a squeeze.

these coloured ones or the regular ones?
definitely the regulars are (fattest of all i have tried)
wondered if these were any different
Bought the AA and AAA packs this time last year and they are great.

I haven't found them fatter than others and they slip in as easily as anything else that I have used.
Quiet fat would not fit my Mario light box

These are slimmer than my Duracell and energiser rechargeables.
I saw these myself in Lidl. Arranged in a rainbow pack ie the battery colours form a rainbow. Not for me.

It's because they are festive colours, other than that they are these batteries, which Lidl sold a few weeks earlier.

Lidl sell an intelligent charger which is Excellent usually about £17/18 and it has a 3 Year warranty it has a few advantages over some other chargers, though you might have to wait a few months till they start to sell it again.
You can see it here on Maplins site for £29.99, identical to the Lidl one

Only just bought a load from Amazon recently!
Don't seem to be on the Lidl brochure.

When the battery info says things like 'can be recharged 1000 times', is that affected by the discharge state before recharge? I use these for LEDs but don't like much of a drop off in light output, so I recharge them sooner than 'normal' - will that allow more cycles because they haven't been so depleted?

Hi, for some reason it is not in the brochure or online, I was keeping an eye out for them online and thought they must not be sticking them again this Christmas, but went in yesterday and there they were, not sure if Lidl forgot to add them to the brochure and online or they have decided they would sell in-store without the need for advertising. There was plenty of stock in my local, at least 100 plus packets.

Not sure about the effect of discharge, but even if you charge them every other day it is well over 5 years of charging cycles.

bought one set as well, we'll see what they worth
32722828-nxpOa.jpg
Can anyone see these on the website? are they last weeks offer?
agree, many toys won't have them. Also I won't buy them anymore because they are rubbish. Every single one I had was disappointment. they do not hold for very long.
traditionally with NiMH batteries you will need to deplete them fully before recharging. Otherwise they will become weaker with each use - they will only recharge up from its last state - so if there was charge left it wont charge that element and you wont be able to use that. So those batteries become less effective if not managed well.

Some chargers have a trickle charge - sometimes called intelligent charging - option where they will do an initial full charge then trickle (slow) charge to make up for the memory effect so that the memory effect is minimised.

I have some Tronic (lidl) rechargables and they are as good as most rechargables. The eneloops from my experience are the best and keep their charge much better, however they cost a lot more.

Alternatives are USB charging rechargeable batteries, however hey have much small capacity due to the inbuilt USB element

I have the same Duracell charger, can be a pain sometimes as it refuses to charge fully discharged batteries and just blinks red, I have an old charger that I have to put fully discharged batteries in for 20 mins before putting them in the Duracell charger then it will accept them.

I never had any problems with this charger, never blinking before or something like that

OK, so best to let them discharge as far as possible.

How far can an intelligent charger (I have Nitecore intelligharger) overcome the memory effect? LOL sorry for asking but I have these running LEDs and I could do with almost recharging every week or two as that is when the lights start to get a bit dull. So it's not like I'm recharging every few months.
I've used Lidl batteries including these for years and can't fault them.. but Id agree other brand they use ain't as good so have stocked up today.. Thanks op as not in brochure I'd not have know otherwise as since I've become anaphylactic to tree nuts and they have loose ones.. I don't go in as often to limit the reactions I take.

thats balls, you dont get a memory effect
trickle charge is also nothing to do with memory effect its just a very low charge rate at the end of the charge cycle which just keeps it topped up safely
charge them up when you need to
every now and then you can run them out if you must but no need to go nuts at all

Thanks for the post managed to get some today, love these batteries now Contours seem hard to get at a good price.
My intelligent charger decided to keep charging one of my lidl batteries, till battery got very hot. Had to stop the charge. Had 2 AAs in the charger the other one stopped charging ok. Bit annoying nothing to do battery I guess
Ni-cads had memory effect - surely not Ni-MH ?
Try NOT to use a fast charger at all- no good for batteries.
Managed to buy some today - the Southend Progress Road store had loads of both AA and AAA.
