Yes they "recharge," in a fashion, a few times. The chargers that do it are overpriced too :-(
There is still zero economic argument for disposable batteries, without so much as mentioning the effect on the environment.

I'll be long dead before the planet goes, so what I am really concerned about is the money - I don't want to be spending it on what I HAVE to spend it on, but what I WANT to spend it on! Disposable battteries are like disposable cash :-(

Hey, you throw your cash away if you want to, I don't deny you your right to do that, but I always get a bit puzzled at the effort needed to do it. There I am, sitting at home, I punch a couple of keyboard keys, then a few days later I get my rechargeables, delivery to the door included in the price, and I never have to so much as pass through the front door to have all the batteries I can use, for years ahead, almost for free after the fourth time I use them.
Yet you need to trek down to Somerfield and stand in a queue for the privilege of giving your money to the Co-op! I mean, it's not as if this offer is even particularly cheap for disposables in the first place!
If that's hot, then perhaps your thermometer is broken - maybe it just needs new batteries?:?

The power is there ok...... the power of ADVERTISING :-(

Good points, fairly well made - I don't agree AT ALL that people should have the attitude "oh well I'll be dead so who cares" - on a micro level, presumably you also think it's ok to drop litter wherever you go because someone else will have to deal with it, so long as it's not you that's ok and you won't be troubled by it? HOWEVER, absolutely right, I was thinking "hmm this sounds quite good" until you reminded me on 7dayshop's price. And there I was, about to buy an in-car USB charger for £1.99 from them and thinking "is there anything else I should buy whilst I'm at it..." YEP! More rechargeables cos the old ones we've got aren't holding their charge.

Of course not. quite the opposite actually , my working life was spent upholding exactly the opposite!

It's called pragmatism, and the cynicism comes with experience!
Probably based on years of seeing however you educate people, or even if you go as far as to force them, they don't give a Monkey's! Nothing truly works :-(
As can be seen on this site, and particularly on disposable battery threads, even when it clearly costs more to do the right thing, they just don't care!

However, as far as the planet in it's entirety goes, I will be dead and clearly by then won't care either. Nor is it specifically my fault, in the meantime, I don't go in for conspicuous consumption, mainly as I can't afford it even if I wanted to!

Thing is, the vast majority of people many of whom won't be dead by then don't care either, so it's not something I would recommend losing sleep about, as those people aren't and they won't, even when the waves are lashing around their ankles, and petrol is 35quid a litre at today's value!

Use hybrid rechargeables, they keep their charge for ages.

Britons throw away something like 600 million batteries a year, most go to landfill where they potentially cause more pollution than disposable nappies.

I refuse to buy disposable batteries any more, it's bad for my wallet and it's bad for the planet.

No I don't have any.
There is indeed a problem with disposable nappies, however apart from the waste of energy in producing them, that's more linked to the nuisance and public health problems people create with them - from the day they were developed, low lives just chuck them anywhere and everywhere, and of course they fill up landfill sites very quickly too.
Not the same sort of environmental problems as batteries, but undeniably a problem.

Of course I fully understand people wanting to use disposable nappies: Unlike disposable batteries which involve more effort than rechargeables; at least they ARE more convenient than the alternative of washing & drying towelling nappies. Not cheaper though, even with energy costs being as high a they are now, but they are certainly more convenient.

Great deal heat from me. I got something similar at Boots. Shame there is no Somerfield.

Back to the 'deal':

25p/battery is not especially cheap - about par for the course in fact unless you go somewhere that's going to rip you off at RRP.

Cool at best.

So if you use(d) disposable nappies, that then renders anything positive you do for the environment entirely useless then? :?

Variation on same bankrupt argument: find someone who's worse than you as an excuse to do absolutely nothing.

The particularly sad thing about this thread is that not only is it another one encouraging you to waste money on disposables, but the tremendous power of TV advertising has convinced so many people that Duracells are somehow special when there is absolutely no evidence that they are any better than any no-name alkaline cell.

Well they're a hell of a lot better than IKEA ones!

The Ikea ones are cheaper than even this "special offer" price on Duracells.

No I didn't. I stated that there's no evidence to say they're any better than any no-name cell.

Don't misquote - it doesn't help your argument.

not all products can use rechargables. Normal alkaline batteries are 1.5V, rechargeables are either 1.25V or 1.3V. If you've got a device that uses 4 AA's then that's 6V with teh normal batteries and 5V with rechargables - some products will just not work.

That's not the whole story. Non-rechargeables tend to have a higher internal resistance than rechargeables, which means that the voltage falls as current is drawn from them more than it does from rechargeables (and this increases as they discharge more). The difference is thus a lot less than you might think. In fact, I can't think of anything nowadays which won't work with rechargeables.

Well I'm offering the evidence - IKEA ones don't last as long!

I'll accept that some other premium branded ones may last just as long though - but which ones?

I guess Duracell is just the safe bet - but they're way over priced in my view.

Absolutely. :thumbsup: Now if there was a legally-enforced testing regime for these things like there is for appliance efficiency then the consumer would be able to make an informed choice rather than be duped by the legalised lying.

Or maybe not... judging by the number of people who still go on about washing machine spin speeds, for instance, when every washing machine has to have a rating for spin performance. :-(

What nonsense.
Get some unbranded batteries from your local cornershop and try them in your device.
Guaranteed they'll run out long before Duracell ones would.

Also; hot deal.
Sometimes I need disposable batteries rather than rechargeables.

Villa;7155487

What nonsense.

Sigh. What I meant was that there is no objective measurement to allow the consumer to distinguish between batteries, unlike, say, for appliance efficiency. So the gullible believe the adverts - if it says so on the telly, it must be true, right?

No, not guaranteed. And do you say the same about all the rest? The supermarket own-brands? The big-name brands? You're making very selective comparisons here...
