Perfect for my wife's toys. Thanks OP
I bought these batteries and used them on my nephew's birthday toy. They are completely lame:- the toy wasn't even remotely battery hungry! Swapped with another set, looked a complete Tit Infront of the family. Returned the present and told the shop it didn't work. Wife suggested another brand of batteries on a replacement. Fine, put the old ones in from Screwfix. Dead.

It would seem not, judging by the last few comments, no good for high power use

What do 9yr olds play with these days?
These are cheap ...but I didn't find them to be very good. They don't last as long as some other alkalines.

Had a similar experience with Diall batteries. Ended up putting the lot in the bin.

Edit: The batteries were used in a Fluke 389 multimeter. It's not a high drain device, when a set of Duracell Industrial batteries last 4 or 5 months used for a couple of hours a day.

Old stocks?
Purchased, checked UKHD to see if someone had beaten me to listing.....well done OP 🔥🔥 🏼
Cheap price but are they worth it? Sounds like similar performance to the Kodaks at Poundland.

AA and AAA :O Small toy bud
So I suppose not the same as IKEA ones, I find those really good and couldn't find any other brand that offers such good value for money.
Was going to buy until i read all the poor review comments.

+1 for the IKEA ones, which I have a few of. But would like to start moving to rechargeable ones soon

The IKEA alkalines I got were very hot and miss in terms of quality, will give these a go.

I have rechargables however they aren't suitable for some applications, including putting them in toys for gifts or wall clocks or remotes.

Not a problem really, she's used to short bursts
Great deal - just bought 1 of each for the kids toys. Needed to stock up now my Maplin supply has almost gone. Never have a problem with Screwfix and just over road from one and always sort any issues for us - thank you

I use the IKEA branded LADDA batteries – Cost £5.50 for a pack of 4 with 2450 mAh capacity. They're likely rebranded "eneloop" batteries made by Panasonic, they go for £20 for a pack of 8 on Amazon!

Have found them to be excellent and fantastic value for money, they've got a lot of juice and work in quite harsh conditions (I use them for a lamp outside in my shed, wireless thermostat & clocks).

Wouldn't hesitate to recommend. The only thing to note is that they have a 1.2 V output while disposable batteries generally have 1.5 V. In real life I haven't found this an issue and find the LADDA batteries work in anything an ordinary non-rechargeable battery could power.
These seem a good deal, that work out a little over 13p a battery, however there are better batteries available for 15p each. Ikea ones are probably the best VFM. CPC sell large packs. I ended up buying rechargeable packs for all my controllers, remembering to charge them has become a new chore. Ah first world problems eh?
Heat added for the heads up, I was tempted, but I'll give this a miss.

That's also a good point, some devices can't use rechargeables they will think the batteries are dead alkalines, due to the lower voltage. I have a few devices like that, thankfully not many!.
How do these compare to amazon own brand ?
Pfft, just after I've ordered some AA! I went for the GP Super on amazon which were about the same price but for 24... seem to get good review though needed some quickly as seems batteries in everything all died at the same time!

The great thing about low self-discharge batteries is that they can stay charged for ages so I have a spare set and when my batteries run out I put them in the charger straight away and use the spare ones. Once they're charged they go straight in the drawer for when they're needed.

I use low self discharge rechargeables in all my remotes, and practically everything that takes AA or AAA batteries, only things I don't use rechargables in is the smoke detectors and also my wall clock, because I've got a load of flat alkalines that have still got enough voltage to run the clock for a year or two.

Lidl eco pre-charged batteries are pretty good when they get them in a few times a year £3 for 4, and Eneloop are probably still the best, hold their charge the longest and maintain a higher voltage during use.

Same here, I always look out for the Lidl eneloops. Great value.

Except I bought packs, not AA rechargeables...

What do you mean by "packs"?
How does this compare to the pack of 10 Kodak/Sony from Poundland? Effectively making it 40 for £4

The 10 packs are zinc batteries that don't last long and don't work well in high drain devices. These are similar to the long life alkaline you get in poundland at 5 for £1.
Reviews on screwfix seem ok but everyone on here is slating them, have ordered some but don’t know if I should collect them
