"This pack of 50 Industrial Duracell AAA batteries is an absolute bargain!
The batteries are of course original Duracell batteries.
The only difference is that the packaging has been designed and packaged for wholesale and professional trade customers (or battery eating households as mine)
You receive a big box with 5 smaller boxes of 10.
These Duracell Industrial AA alkaline batteries are ideal for any busy user by providing the best performance and durability at only 0.24p per battery."

Thanks OP for taking the time. It may well get hot as people see Duracell and click "Hot".

However better-rated batteries can be found for 12-15p per cell (normal price) on the high street, so this is NOT good value for money.

You are paying 10p for the cell and 16p extra for it to have Duracell printed on the side.

Brilliantly written. We'll get the message through one of these days. It's amazing how supposedly savvy HUKDers get seduced by the word Duracell.
other seller selling for 11.95 if you are not in priime and can wait.
Better to buy from a manufacturer which does not lie and charge over inflated prices.
Would you buy from a company which sold snake oil
Handy if like me you've got 10 different remote controls - all just to watch the telly.

Hi Nujol,

I confess I normally get these for all those gadgets that I did not need but came up on HUKD!, but did not know about other batteries a lot cheaper, could you guide me which ones.

Many thanks

Often a certain report gets quoted on here which when you try and Google it only shows up the research company no other information about how or who they are or their links to the battery companies.

What is right for one application may not be right for another, what I can tell you is for what we use batteries for these ones last longer than IKEA, pound shops and other big makes. Now what will happen is I will get criticised but like mpg you can only see what happens in the real world conditions not in a lab

One watch out, make sure you buy batteries from a reputable source, you wouldn't think so but batteries are one of the most faked products out there.

I used some cheaper (sony, panasonic, kodak etc) batteries for example for my weather station and I had to replace​ them after about 2 weeks. I bought and started using these two monts ago and they are still as good as new. I paid £2 per pack of 10 discount in plumb center

​nomatter what you say. op changed the price from 13.49 to 11.95. . choice is urs now.
I believe these are better value batteries as they are 100 percent legit from Energizer, and if it's your first Ryman order, then you can get 20 percent discount, meaning 24 AAA batteries for just £4 if you subscribe to their news letter from the home page.

You can pleasure yourself a lot cheaper in the long run by using rechargeables.
Cold. Here is the battery benchmark chart where you can see non-branded, supermarket and poundshop Alkalines performing better than duracell, for half the cost. http://www.batteryshowdown.com/static/images/mah_large_1000mA.png

Always gets posted that but as I said earlier where can we see if it's truly independent, if you use batteries try them yourself and make your own mind up. Lab tests are amazing at showing what you want to see, just look at mpg

I'm afraid that's the sort of thing I'd expect to hear from Michael Gove: if the answer isn't what we want to hear, dismiss it as invalid.
Just remember guys, a lot of these are fake... Even from trusted sellers etc.

I've been returning loads lately to eBay and Amazon

How have you determined they are fakes? One way I'm guessing is to weigh them - I know a lot of cheap cells contain air and you can prove this by squeezing them.

But I can't be sure they're not being paid by Poundland, Wilko, IKEA, et al! And, as for your comparison with mpg, I'd rather have some sort of comparative analysis than having to rely on "what I can tell you"!

As I said one report doesn't prove anything as for who, the best ones are a major manufacturers and most of the big companies make batteries for other companies, even Duracell. You can rely on your own judgement on batteries what you use them for will be different to others and the drain may be different as on the lab tests.

This looks like a lost cause to me!

We are trying to help you, but first you must help yourself

Go on, try out a range of cells that are half the price and outperform Duracell / Energiser-branded cells and post your results, then, in your specialist applications

I think what is sad is that you've had to try so hard to find something so insignificant to use as a reason to rubbish that site.
Been buying procell for years and find them to perform very well for the money... I like the reassurance of using a quality product when putting them in say a £80 torch; haven't had one leak on me yet.

Cool... And obviously you've recently tried out the identical/proven-to-be-better alternatives... Nothing to do with the double-the-price charge for Duracell being printed on the side...?

Just trying to help the masses recognise that the word "Duracell" does not affect the performance - these are chemical products, commodities even, when the brand makes no difference to the product (unless fake or not Alkaline).

Comparable to eg buying branded or own-brand sugar. Identical stuff.
PS as predicted in Post #1, despite being a poor deal this has ended up hot!
the only bad experience of alkaline batteries were when I used Halfwords alkaline some years ago, different sizes leaked within their best before dates, something that I've never had with any other alkaline batteries. Alkaline rarely leak even if years after their date so no idea who Halfords bought these from

Kids can be taught how to use rechargeable batteries - they pick up on things quickly.
