Morrisons have a BOGOF offer on the Duracell range of Batteries but the 9V worked out less than half price in my local (North Shields store)

£2.39 x 2 = £4.78 less £2.89 = £1.89 = 94.5p each!

Yeh what you waiting for?!?
Im in bed while your sitting at your computer? Lol :oops:

Good price but don't forget it's far more economical to use rechargeable batteries.You'll soon recover the initial outlay for a rechargeable as it costs less than 1p per charge. With rechargeable batteries, you no longer have to remember to buy new ones.

15 billion ordinary batteries are thrown away every year, all of which end up in landfill sites. A thought for anyone who cares about the environment and reducing waste. :thumbsup:

Which is all very well but they're not exactly safe to use in smoke detectors.

Please don’t use rechargeable batteries in smoke alarm’s unlike these alkaline or even better 9volt lithium batteries ( lithium last 10 years), rechargeable batteries tend to discharge instantly at the end of the cycle and you may not get the telltale beeps that tell you the battery needs replacing.

Great little deal. Purchased a couple for the smoke alarms and paintball gun. voted hot and rep left

Rechargeable are okay as long as you get the extra capacity ones i.e. expensive ones, as yes normal rechargeables do give off less power than an alkaline. As long as you test it once a month as advised, you'll find the extra capacity batteries last plenty long enough. Take them out once in a while and stick them on your tongue to see how strong they are It's always good to have an alarm that uses two batteries as well.

Self-discharge: Both NiMH and NICAD are affected by reasonably high … Self-discharge: Both NiMH and NICAD are affected by reasonably high self-discharge. The NICAD loses about 10% of its capacity within the first 24 hours, after which the self-discharge settles to about 10% per month. The self-discharge of the NiMH is one-and-a-half to two times higher than that of the NICAD. Selecting hydride materials that improve hydrogen bonding to reduce self-discharge typically also decrease the battery capacity.



To put that in perspective a set of 4 2500mah in my camera when freshly charged will give 600+ shots. Charge them and leave them a month... 100 if i'm lucky.

So considering the meagre mah rating of PP3 rechargables, would you really trust your life to one?

3 people die each year testing if a 9v battery works on their tongue... apparently

morrisons maths bad in north shields def 2 for £1.89

Noticed something odd on my receipt, how Morrisons do this is scan in two products, in my Morrsions thats £2.39 each and then scan a third one at a minus price, so you would think £2.39+£2.39-£2.39=£2.39, but they have been scanning them minus price at £2.89 so it comes to £1.89 for two.:thumbsup:

Most supermarkets do that on BOGOF. They set the discount at a blanket rate of the highest possible price in the offer.
