A 12 pack of EBL rechargable AAA batteries are currently £9.99. Don't get anywhere near as many of course but each one can be charged over a thousand times which even if you use them 24/7 and need to charge them every month they'd still in theory last a lifetime. Can't see people ever needing more than 24 AAAs at a time, so for £20 you have a lifetime supply instead of these which might last a few years sure but then you have to buy more and suddenly they already cost more. Even 12 is enough for many people so a lifetime amount can be had for just £10.

Mainly saying this for the environmental impact. At worst these 40 batteries will be a big chunk of alkaline battery metals corroding in the ground for 100s of years, or at best they get recycled which still uses 100x more energy and resources than just recharging one.

I agree a lot with what you say. I'm contemplating buying a pack of alkaline batteries however for things like LED candle flicker lights, PC keyboard and mouse, which will run for 6-24months on alkaline, but 1-3 on rechargables. Rechargable batteries just don't cut the capacity of alkaline cells and self-discharge too quickly for low power, long-term usage. Fortunately my place of work has a battery bank, so hopefully they do at least not end up in the sea/ground.

These are great for wireless PIR sensors for burglar alarms such as Yale. Can last between 18-24 months depending on how many times these get tripped.
Alkaline are best I have tried various rechargeable they don’t last anywhere near the number of charges stated on the pack, lose capacity over a year to like half of that printed on the packet most are garbage in low drain applications such remotes and lose capacity I am having many replaced by amazon at under a year old -they just send a new set.

Both come with battery cases to store them in when not used. The batteries in the second link have slightly more capacity so they don't need changing as much. You can get some cheaper brands but EBL is normally the best value, they're still cheap but they're still good quality as in they'll never really stop working. The Amazon Basics brand is pretty much the same too. You can get more expensive ones with twice as much capacity but I don't see the point since they're rechargable anyway, charging them every 6 months instead of 9 months doesn't matter to me, they're still going to last 20+ years either way.

You can get rechargables with the capacity of alkaline but yeah they cost like twice as much, so 12 for £20 which starts pushing it a bit. The discharge is nowhere near as bad now though, the EBL page claims 75% after 3 years of non use which is pretty much a non issue at that point even if they are exaggerating a bit. But yeah I know rechargables can be expensive to start with but I just bought an 8 pack at a time a few months apart. After a year I had 24 of them and have been set ever since. The only problem is remembering to remove the batteries of anything I give away lol, when they cost £1/each then you can easily be giving away £4 in a silly little kids toy.

I bought some Amazon Basics about three years ago. Was quite disappointed by them, although I do still use them. i found that following a charge, if I left them on a table for a month or two, when I came back to them, they didn't last very long at all. I assumed they were slowly discharging despite not being used.
good price very good batteries but too many of them

Ah fair enough, maybe they aren't as good then. Amazon mentions they're slow discharge but doesn't give an actual number. On EBL product pages they say 75% remaining after 3 years which is pretty good, and it must come kinda close if they're confident enough to say it straight up like that instead of amazons vagueness.

I’d love to only need 24 AAs at a time (my 12 Tado TRVs alone need that). Also many of my gadgets don’t run on rechargeable voltage, even need lithium to last any decent length of time.
