They are £1 from pound land for x2 AA or x2 AAA. So cold from me.

50p a cell is unbelievably cheap for low discharge batteries, my guess is they'd either be very low capacity, or standard budget rechargeables miss-sold as LSD, or absolute crap, or all of the above.

Not tried aldi ones, but the Lidl ones are good.

These claim to be 2,400mah for the AA, and 900mah for the AAA.

If these claimed ratings are even 20% less than stated its still a good price. Hot price especially for high street.

Great batteries had some last year, still going strong (the C, AA & the AAA)

Before mindlessly voting cold are you even aware that the majority of cheap rechargeables have very low mah capacity therefore making them false economy.

What's important is mah.
Aldi AA is 2400, not bad. Pound land are a lot less.
No use to me though, have an energizer charger

good for you !

Those are 800mah and NiCd so may be ok for your remote controller

Can these be used in solar garden lights? - the ones which came with the units are now kaput.

you're best with poundland batteries. they'll closely match the low capacity batteries that came with your lights.

i have an energizer charger also. why are they unsuitable for these batteries?

Not even good for your remote control, cos they'll run themselves out over time

How do these compare with the Lidi Tronic eco ? They seem to be same spec

I think the lidl ones are £2.99 when they do them?

You're right, probably won't have them 'till October though :- hotukdeals.com/dea…265

So how do you actually get these? Do I have to keep going to the store or can these be ordered online from 9th?

They - and the other 50 or so items that are available FROM that day "while stocks last" - will be in the Aldi stores at opening Thu 9th (and maybe during last 1-2hrs of Wed 8th depending on your store's procedures/staffing).

All batteries are not equal

Showing as £3.99 on Aldi website

I bought some 1000mah from ebay for £1 for 4 and they seem fine for the cordless handsets for the house phones

What devices will these Aldi batteries be best for?

Any good for Xbox controllers for instance?

Actually 1800mah x 4 aaa from Ebay sent from Hong Kong for £1.20 delivered

Of course they may not be really be 1800mah...

Cordless phones are on charge most of the time, so low capacity, non-LSD are perfect. These are good for cameras, kids toys etc.

Bargain. Pound shop are only 800 mh.
Maplin have sale on with 12AA batteries 2000mah £14.99 which equates to £1.25 for each battery.
So the Aldi ones are better value.
These are useful in digital cameras as the more mah the longer the battery lasts before it goes flat/needs recharging. Providing the voltage is correct your device only takes the power it needs , so the more mah the better/longer it will last.

Do Aldi sell a decent charger though?

Which one do you have? I have the large 4 cell one with led display for each battery. If I use anything other than energizer, it flashes 'bad'
Think its racist oO

It's all about the mAh ;). I've got some lidl ones which are similar capacity maybe slightly less. Think it took me a about a week of fairly regular play to drain them. For £3, I think they're great. You get 4 so 2 can always be charging while you're using the free pair.

The Pounland Powercell AAA are rated at 900mah and always found them to be good but have been using Palocell 1100 mah for £4 for 4 from Amazon and get 2 days use on my Roberts personal radio,the Aldi ones are good value if you need slow discharge ones.

ha. i have a 4cell one that has a green led for every 2 cells, it lights up when the batteries are in indicating power/charging/cooking/you have forgotten about these haven't you

Rechargeable batteries that hold 2,400mAH ( 2.4 amps ) have the same capacity as a good Duracell disposable battery. Chargers that have a timed cycle - usually 2 hours - do not charge these cells to capacity. When the cells feel warm to touch then the charging cycle is complete. Remove ASAP before they get hot. Most new batteries have a better capacity after being charged / discharged a few times in a torch or LED light. Then you can get more photos from a set of NiMH AA Batteries.

Last time the Lidl ones were on I bought a few packs of each, and I'll probably never have to buy another AA or AAA battery. Why do people wet themselves over Duracells?

Duracells are a brand we're all familiar with. So if we say they are worse than... or better than Duracell it gives us a bench mark to work from.

Not the impression I get, unfortunately, which is that people have been so duped by the TV advertising that they will pay anything for Duracells. But my main point is that people buy disposable cells in large quantities at all. As well as being inconvenient to have to keep buying, and a phenomenal waste, they are the absolute opposite of a hot deal.

When advertising gives us "household" names like Duracell, Nescafe, Tetley and Heinz people are drawn to make a safe purchase of a known brand. Like the many contributors to these pages who are brand snobs. They don't believe you can get something just as good for a fraction of the price. Which is why this forum exists. People need to be educated about rechargeable batteries. But with contributors recommending Poundland its an uphill struggle.

Can these type of batteries generally be used with garden solar lights?

Yes you can - but the sunshine in the UK will never give them a full charge.

Got these last night - using in portable phone and 1st time it ever fully charged - (ie shown as stop charging) will see how long they last on full charge.
