Great deal Thanks Op. That should keep the kids at bay on xmas day.

I usually burn my batteries with my old tyres and engine oil of an evening so that it doesnt upset the neighbours.

Only joking my old engine oil goes down the drain im not a total animal.
If you have kids, invest in rechargeables and help save their future 🙏
Looking at the thumbnail on the main deals page, for a minute, I thought these were Lego under wear.

Why are non rechargeable even legal


Because for some low-drain purposes like clocks and remotes, they can actually work out cheaper and be better for the environment?

Decent price for a "get out of jail free" pack of batteries. Saves the grief on christmas day when you realize you didn`t get batteries for something.

Possibly because most of us humans live in the industrialized real world.
Eutopia doesn`t exist and never will until viable & affordable sustainable alternative energy systems are available for the masses

At least your doing something for the environment
Good deal. These were £8.49 when I bought a pack last week.
Only 50p I know, but...

Around 36% of all the world's energy is produced by non-fossil fuels, of which 26% renewable. I'm sure if the governments got involved more, it'd be near enough all by now. It seems to be one of the last thing people care about, hopefully I'm dead before the effects show signficantly

Thing is, some people are poor. So they need to live as cheaply as possible right now, so they and their kids can live right now. No point in worrying about theoretical kids in the future if we can't feed the ones now there won't be any in the future

LOL, i thought the exact same thing last night whilst trying to wash down my totally processed food meal of a big mac n fries with a milkshake through a cardboard straw no worries though I`ve got a stash of plastic straws in the house
Just got to hope the plastics police don`t drop round

True. We have a giant ball of energy in the sky, but until we find widespread ways of meeting the demand of a ever growing, demanding population, then nothing really changes.

Most of the time things like solar panels, wind generators etc are not really doing much/if anything because the power storage units have reached capacity. We actually need a revolution in the ability to be able to store huge amounts of energy.

Guru, you hit that right on the head
Whats the most common electrical energy storage medium ? Batteries.
So until the boffs come up with something the eco warriors need to pipe down or expend their energy more efficiently by channeling it into finding solutions rather than causing further pollution by holding up traffic.

Anyway back on thread this is a good buy

Got a link for rechargable kids?
If you're not going to buy rechargeable, at least try and recycle your batteries when they die. Various supermarkets have collection points, including Lidl and Aldi

Still, when (good) rechargeable can be had for about £1/battery, I can't see a good argument not to

Same reason the old fashioned internal combustion engine is money and the resistance of moving forward on to better and newer things.

Issue is cost - to move to near all renewables is going to require tax increases to fund help for people who won't be able to afford the high energy prices.
Does anyone even use D cells anymore?

Energy prices are heavily inflated anyways in the UK due to the monopoly, its why Ofgem introduced a price cap. We'd probably be paying similar price. Besides if done right, renewables can be as cheap as 3 to 4 pence per kilowatt to produce, with highs around 10 pence per kilowatt. It'll create jobs and what not too.
With proper execution renewables are now cheaper than fossil fuels in a lot of cases now!

Isn't there a higher carbon footprint for the production of, say, one rechargeable Ni-Mh AA battery, compared to the production of one disposable alkaline AA battery? I assume there is and that you would have to use the rechargeable battery X number of times in order for it to work out as better for the environment.

If anyone is familiar with the research on this I would be very interested to know what those ratios are approximately. With lots of low-drain devices, I probably only get through a couple of sets of disposables in the lifetime of a set of rechargeables.

For example, on a clock, I get around 5 years from disposables, compared to about 10 years lifetime for rechargeables. So the rechargeables would have to have less than double the carbon footprint to produce in order to be better for the environment (ignoring the environmental impact of the charger etc).

Edit: I suspected you had to use rechargeable batteries several times in order for them to be better for the environment, but it's worse than I expected. According to a 2016 paper that looked at the entire lifecycle (including manufacture, disposal, etc), rechargeable Ni-Mh batteries are worse for the environment if you recharge them fully less than 20 times during their lifetime. You have to recharge them fully at least 50 times to start getting a tangible benefit.

We've got ways of storing energy in vast quantities using various methods involving pressure, gravitional potential energy and others , renewables are now cheaper than fossil fuels in most cases for electricity, we need more of a push.

Never been called an Eco warrior for suggesting a very small way of reducing wasts. Also charging non-recharagable batteries is generally not recommended due to safety concerns and potential of leaks. Bit sad to take attacks on people who are just trying to encourage slightly better practices for the environment.

They don't leak? I heard leaks were a common issue
