Some good picks to be had for rechargeables these days. I go with whatever is on offer when I need them.

Amazon basic 2500Mah served me well, got a bunch when they were cheap. The Lidl Tronic 2400 cells were not quite as good- doesn't mean they were bad. For the price (£1 each, often less) they are the best if anything.

Eneloop Pro very good, but rarely on offer. Heard good things about these Duracells, these 'ultra' ones in particular. £1.75 per battery sounds ok.

Might have got lost in the blurb but don't forget Topcashback too
I think these should be the ones made in Japan by FDK (of Eneloop fame) but you'd want to check the packaging. More expensive than IKEA's £5.50/4 if you visit their stores.
Not a bad price, but I prefer the Varta ones from Screwfix, 4 for £5, with some luck you find them cheaper when on sale, or the Lidl ones, again cheaper.
However, voted hot, the price is decent.
Anyone know what the 'Extra Value' is?

Think it just means it's cheaper when buying 3 packs mate.

Picked up 2 packs of the Lidl ones today for £2.99 /4, great value for using in kids toys which are less demanding. Use the Duracell in something like RC toys which need more umph!
They are not so good, loose runtime over time. Amazon ones much better only beaten by eneloops.
Going to buy eneloops pro for my line laser which is a high drain device.

Lidl ones are not reliable as others have pointed out.

Never had problems with mine and yes, like with everything else, some people are happy, some others are not, but on the whole, IMO the Lidl ones seem to be the best value considering the price. This does not means are the best, but in my case these served me well.

To be honest most of the time it's probably down to the charger. I had a "smart" charger and it was shocking at reporting my batteries fully charged when they weren't. However I've used these (or variants of) duracell for years and they've always been reliable so I'm happy to pay the extra ££'s

Amazon's batteries are exactly the same as Eneloop if you get the right ones. There's only one manufacturer of these low self-discharge batteries in Japan, FDK, and they make them for a lot of companies.
Can anyone advise on the average life of this type of battery if used in an intermittent or low drain application? Are they likely to last several years being charged a few times a year, or is that likely to kill them?

I recently read that traditional alkalines need 100x the energy to produce them that they give out. This has prompted me to look at rechargeables instead for things like lights, torches, milk frother and so on.

I have used all coloured Amazon ones and found eneloops to be very slightly better probably because of the difference in generations. Eneloop pro are considered to be the best with marginal difference with other rebranded eneloops.

They are designed to be better at discharging slowly sat on the shelf, so in low drain applications they will last a long time before they need charging again. I used a few cheaper ones in remote controls which is kind of overkill but I never charge them more than once a year! The AAA type in a couple of my remotes are at least 5 years old and still work fine on that cycle.

If you're only charging them every 6 months for example then they could last a very long time before they degrade significantly. The guarantee here for these is 5 years so you should be able to expect at least that, potentially it could even be a decade.

Sounds promising. I used to use a lot of rechargeables but most NiMH ones died after a year or two. I had some early enloops and rechargeable duracells and they didn't fare much better. More recently I've been using so few batteries that it seemed more sensible to just buy single ones, that is until I read how inefficient they actually are.
Pair this up with a Love Honey deal and watch it go through the roof
The IKEA ones are superb. Last for months in my wildlife cam. Charge up really quickly in my Philip's charger.
Fantastic for Xbox one controller. Lasts longe than the play and charge kit and can be swapped out instantly with a fresh pair. Also recharged rapidly using the Duracell charger.
bit of pot-luck as to whether these are Japanese fujitsu cells or the cheaper chinese cells.

These batteries are incredible and pay for themselves in no time. I've got 12 and will likely buy more for friends and family use.

Just make sure you recycle them properly when they eventually die

I start using Nickel-Zinc for some equipment , these give more oomph as it is 1.6V.

the ones on Amazon..?
i was looking at those yesterday, was wondering the same..
Would these be any good for solar lights. We have 2 mounted outside our front and one of them is not as bright as the other. Any advice would be appreciated

It could be do to placement. One not getting as much sun so not charging as much through the day. Unfortunately these batteries would make little difference especially this time of year. They'll run right down each night regardless.
888eyeball03/11/2019 10:42

Have got that experience too. But even with them failing soon-ish compared to others they're still a hell of a lot cheaper than buying normal batteries.
Can the Amazon Basics charger be used with these?
Not a fan of the Duracell’s as I have quiet a few as some are not holding charge now or charging fully unlike the Fujitsu or enaloops, Just got some Panasonic hybrids from B&m to try out but I’ll no they be top notch
charged both and as per usual they charge higher than rated.

Another vote for Ikea... can be ordered online.
Great find thanks
You'll be mad to get anything other than the Lidl ones at £3 a pack, provided you have a Lidl nearby

Which make was that ?
I bought a Nitecore SC4 as it had the option to charge on 12V. I havent used it that much so far, but it has a resistance test which also says poor or good. Last night i reset the charger a few times & resistances were changing quite alot each time which i thought was weird ?.
Its a 4 channel charger, & i put in a 18650, 2 AA's & another 18650 - after an hour i realised nothing was charging so it obviously didnt like different battery types being mixed together (Maybe i should of put them in as pairs - i really need read up the instructions again )
Thanks

It was a none brand amazon cheapie charger. It never charged a battery right. I have an ansmann charger now and it's much better but not without its faults.
