Cheap Battery range at SVP-all those xmas toys! Duracell Commercial range

Thought i'd share this with everyone, I buy all my batteries here, as do many others it would seem as they sell out quick!!

These are Duracell's bulk-packed batteries in standard sizes aimed at industrial users. Not readily available on the high street, they're suited to any power-hungry user and represent very good value. They go by the name of Procell. I've bought loads in the past.

Prices start from £2.21 for 10 AA size.

SVP are local to me, and I've always had great service from them.

Check it out, hopefully you can benefit too!

To be honest I have been very unimpressed with the procell range of batteries. I have used them in my cordless mouse and they have leaked acid on more than one occasion. Def not made aswell as duracell normal batteries.

Much prefer energiser.

The gadget show the other day rated the Morrisons High POwer (or whatever their called) as the best battery/£ if that makes sense. Tbh, I dont know how much they cost in Morrisons or how that compares to this deal, but I though I'd share.

I can't for the life of me understand why anyone still uses conventional throw-away batteries. NiMH rechargeables (the higher ma value the better) are much, much cheaper on an ongoing basis AND better for the environment. I keep a stock of about 6 AAA and 12 AA's fully charged and use them in various appliances- radios, mp3s, torches, zappers and as soon as any run out I put the empty ones back on charge. They do last about 80% of the time of a top of the range Duracell B4 recharging but that's a small negative.

Normal NiMH batteries lose their charge very quickly. Charging in advance of using them isn't environmentally friendly.

Voted hot as I have used these batteries and found them to be excellent.

Another reason for not using rechargables for everything is that a lot of kids toys wont work with them

very true, many toys, particularly radio controlled ones require 6v usually from 4 x 1.5v AA duracells etc.

Rechargeables offer 4 x 1.2v = 4.8v. This reduces performance and signal strength which could end up being dangerous.
