Yes, I've ordered via them as they have a better rating.

Maybe I've wasted a penny?

Depends what your putting them in, most rechargeable AA and AAA batteries do not do well in higher current applications.

Rechargeables are usually only 1.2volts, these will be 1.5 volts. As stuellis replied - depends on what you want to use them for.
rechargeable batteries are a pain in the ****,did used to go that way but not worth the hassle anymore.

I have 'Jones' wall clock in my kitchen which despite having a quartz movement, has a sweeping second hand rather than one that ticks. Didn't even realise there were different types of AA battery but bought some on a special offer here on HUKD a while back, and when the battery died in the clock, put in one of these rechargeable ones.

Turns out it's got a lower output than a normal non-rechargeable AA battery and as a result the clock runs but loses time quite badly!

Something to bear in mind. Never knew there were different output AA batteries.
good price if genuine Duracell. Duracell batteries are one of most faked batteries going.
I box £10 worth of industrial 9v from Amazon and none of them f'n worked.

which seller? did you complain to amazon?
These are fakes..got some from same seller last year,so lasted 3X less than old ones and leaked too...
It is true, that every 3-rd Duracell battery sold in the UK is a Fake!
Using rechargeable Eneloops now and see savings already.
The Ultra/plus power batteries are better than these according to data sheets. Not so sure with the Simply as data given is different. Also B&Q are doing Varta high energy AA batteries @ £5 for 20

Even bigger savings by buying Eneloops under a different name!

Also available.. 30 for £6.23 with free delivery
why does price change to £2.95 @checkout?
I normally go for the GP ultra ones which come out close to ProCell/industrial on batteryshowdown.com. Last time I paid 23p each for them from CPC (prob on offer again but haven't checked)

Screwfix currently have 30 for £7.99 = 27p each. Worth checking CPC offers though.
I use the readycell AA's from home bargains- 6 for a £1.
Good reviews here:

I'd go with the Varta's from B&Q 25p each. Much better. Alternatively look out for the Argos clearance on Panasonic pro's. Often get a pack of 8 for £1.50

I only use batteries for my remote control and door bell.
Rechargeable batteries are an absolute pain in the back side.
Some of them don't charge, while some only a few days before the remote intermittently stops working.

Non rechargeable batteries, tend to last me about 1-3 years, without any issues.
They are truly plug & play.
So for the cost of around £3....its a no brainer.
These have an excellent rating (if genuine) in the comparison charts, but IKEA are better and so are the Costo ones (which I have just bought 48 of).

You can recharge them up to 10 time using smart charger

​Yes I usually get the IKEA ones, half the price of Duracell and just as good/better.

They won't charge Alkalines. Tried this crap 2 years ago- bloody hell!!!! Alkalines( 2 Duracells and 2 Energiser) leaked and ruined my alarm clock and weather station.
DO NOT DO THIS!!!!

Too late for me. I did not know that those Fujitsu are eneloop. Otherwise, I would buy some.

I have been using Eneloop for 5 years. I like them a lot as I do not have to change batteries so often compare to other batteries. My child has so many toys, using other short-lasting batteries can be a pain.

Look at lloyton battery charger on eBay item no 400982272164
You can charge alkaline battery up to 10 times !!!
PS, the Costco batteries are made by Duracell.

I have used these batteries (Duracell industrial) for a few years, but they have suddenly stopped working with the Harmony remotes. I don't know if the ones that I have are fake, but I have had to move to Lithiums and now both remotes work fine.
I bought these and was disappointed that they did not last any longer than my Ikea bateries

Agreed. The recharge on them tend to last about a quarter of the time a new set would last, and get worse every recharge. I stopped a long time back
