Thanks.

Thanks. Ordered a few.

Wilko sells 4 for 50p, which works out a lot cheaper. Not Duracell, but just as good

Not in my weather station. Procell 6 months others 4 months or less

Here we go again........

Ok, the data on Battery Showdown is for AA, but I doubt if AAA is much different. Kodak Xtralife from Poundland still look a better buy.

Sold out

Or Ikea Alkalisk at £1.50 for 10 if you're unfortunate enough to be in there for other reasons.

By opinions, I think you mean prejudices. Long experience of Duracell products in an industrial environment would suggest they're no more reliable/less prone to leaks than any other major brand.

I use these all the time for wireless mics! Heat!

12 for £2.50 at the local boot sale/market

These seem to have replaced the procell versions and are of the same quality. I use them all the time and have never had a probelm, though don't claim to be enough of an expert to compare them to other brands.

If you want to save money, rechargables are the only way.

Depends on the application. Low-self-discharge rechargables cost about £1.50 each (AAs - AAAs are a bit cheaper). So that's 10x the price of Alkalisk or Kodak, and in many applications it will take years before you've burnt through 10 sets of batteries.

In heavy usage devices which drain the batteries fast, so you recharge them every week or so and don't need LSD, then standard cheap rechargables certainly make sense.

Rechargeables are crap they only last x number of cycles, they're lower voltage so get thru their charge quicker.

I'm sure they're fine for low drain applications but they're still crap at anything else. Also are you factoring in the electricity used in charging them?

I use rechargeables in my xbox controller as it burns them up in no time. Been using the same ones for about 4 years now, no problem. You're obviously not going to spend money on rechargeable to put them in a clock or a tv remote, that's just common sense. I don't notice any difference between using fresh duracell to my rechargeables.

You can go with 'widely differing opinions' if you like but I'll be sticking with the actual measurements.

I'm not an expert either but, under the old name of Procell, these are the only modern batteries I've ever had that leaked. However, I suspect your experience of them depends on what you use them for.

We have gone through several thousand Procell batteries at work over the last 10+ years and a pattern emerged - they are fine in relatively high drain applications where they are going to be changed regularly (we used them in blood pressure machines without issue) but if you put them in something like a TV remote control then the question isn't if they will leak but when...

We've switched to Varta now - they cost about the same and don't seem any more or less powerful but they don't leak.

you will be telling us next you always get the MPG that your car manufacturer quotes, tests and real world never match

Showing as expired, probably because they've gone up to £2.91 but I still ordered 2 packs. Many thanks OP ;O)

Nowhere close

The point of these tests isn't to tell you exactly what you will get in the real world, they're to give you a way to properly compare things.

Third generation eneloops last something like 2100 cycles. I estimate that it'd save you at least £750. The electricity is negligible. Even if the charge is 10% less you're still saving hundreds of pounds, although it'll probably take most people years to go through 2100 cycles. It's also more convenient that having to buy new batteries.
