Found 1st Nov
Have been looking at deals for batteries and came across this, can't go wrong at that price with Christmas coming up and kids drive us crazy for their toys etc, can never have enough of them! These batteries are long lasting and ideal for remote controls, motor-driven toys, electrical gadgets etc & the best part is that they are 100 % tested against leaks!!

I've had more Duracells leak than any other make - they aren't anything like as good as they used to be. Nip down to Poundland and get Kodak Xtralife - 8 for £1

Battery comparison

Also, beware of counterfeits - very common on eBay and Amazon.

" the best part is that they are 100 % tested against leaks!!" Ok. It isn't leaking now so it never will? That's like saying you're alive now so you'll never die.

I have no idea why people buy Duracell AA or AAA!

Ikea £1.49 for 10 AA or AAA always good I find

We need to move away from single-use batteries, so wasteful. Buy NiMH rechargeables instead, they last a long time and you can get them pre-charged. It is possible to buy four for about £5.

I prefer rechargeables but there are still use cases for Alkaline, even ready to use NiMH don't seem to fair well over long periods, end up needing to be cycled etc to retain capacity, etc. Zinc Chloride should definitely go though.

Unfortunately rechargeables are lower voltage and won't work some devices (notably some DAB radios in my experience).

There's a pretty good chance that you're not immortal. And seeing as that's a bit of a downer for you, you might as well get it all over at once. There's no such person as Santa Claus. Isn't life

Totally agree when it comes to AA and AAA.

This deal is poor value by comparison.

My Roberts DAB radio runs exclusively off rechargeables. I use the low self discharge type, the ones that hold their charge for months without being used.

That's fine but I have at least one DAB radio (a Roberts) which struggles with rechargeables. I believe they are 1.2v vs 1.5v for disposables so that's 4.8v vs 6v for the four. In most cases rechargeables are fine but this is an example where it's not.

I find that Poundland only do them in 6 packs now.

So I'd go for the Ikea Alkalisk ones personally. £1.95 for a 10 pack and you get more mAh than the Xtralife ones.

Did anyone else get these and think they are fake?

Try Kodak's in an Xbox one controller and see how long they last
