I usually buy the big packs of pound shop batteries but I've found if you leave them in something for a while without using it, they leak acid. So now I'm trying more expensive alternatives and any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated

All alkaline batteries will leak if left in unused devices. It's a chemical reaction - read Wiki.

No offense but my advice would be to start arriving in 21st century and use rechargables.

My comment was more in regards of getting the idea of stopping wasting money and resources on batteries. Nevermind!

These are super.

maplin.co.uk/p/m…3el

you can get 24 Energiser from Robert Dyas for similar price

Try the Duracell industrial ones same battery normally around £3 for 10.

Aldi own label. £1.99 for 8. Tested by Which? to be very slightly better than this Duracell variant. Lidl are the same price and still good. Just not quite as good as the Aldi ones.

Got two packs of these from B&M in Macclesfield for under £9. Not sure if that deal was national or not, but worth checking out!

Anyone know the difference between Duracell plus power and energizer max +power-seal? Just got some of the latter on offer at asda 10 x AA or AAA for £3.83 (half usual price)

Is it just me or are all batteries crap these days....buying online especially from seller's I'm never sure if they are genuine or not....bought Energizers and Duracell for low usage electronic safes and they dont last any time at all.

One thing which keeps these batteries necessary is the voltage. These are 1.5v versus most rechargeables which are 1.2v and some gadgets can tell the difference.
