If you can't do the mathematics, then you keep believing that, but for those who can, have a look at Low self discharge rechargeables, (no, not standard NiMH) and see how much money you can save in NO time when you stop throwing these things in the bin, without any inconvenience:

I think it depends on the use. Rechargeable are great for high power devices such as digital cameras. But for low power applications such as a remote or a clock you are probably better of with normal batteries. Some don't even need alkaline.

So, if you need several sets of batteries a year, go for rechargeable ones.

morrisons have all their duracell plus batteries [not just aa] for £1.50

Ordered 10 packs (that's 80 batteries) for less than £15! Voted hot.

A good deal but still cheaper on Ebay. I have just ordered 20 x Duracell (Process - Professional version) for £2.43 delivered.

I'd say shop around people.....

Are duracell procell batteries really as good as the standard duracell battery?

Also, check the best before date when buying off eBay.

I agree sometimes rechargeable batteries just don't work out. I tried 3 in a lamp I rarely use and have now replaced them with normal ones as it was a waste of money tying up recharchable batteries in it.

rechargeables are 1.2v so 3 x 1.2v is only 3.6v. It might not work if the device needs 4.5v (3x1.5v)

£1.50 for a pack of 8?

Hi,

I spotted this the other night and ordered it - before I posted the deal on here I wanted to check what I got as the title stated you'd get a 4 pack but the description contradicted this and stated 4 + 4 and the picture showed that each pack SHOULD contain 8 batteries. Because they were also BOGOF I should have got 16 batteries for £3 - that would be an absolute bargain...

Unfortunately guess what turned up when I collected at store - a pack of just 4 (it wasn't a promotional pack with the four free batteries). I did get another 4 pack free on the BOGOF offer but this means I spent £3 to get 8 batteries.

You might get lucky as I guess it depends on what they deliver from the warehouse...trading standards should really be informed if this happens to everyone as it is very misleading if are showing a picture of the 4+4 pack but not delivering it... :x

I ordered some rechargeables from 7dayshop instead - better value in long run...

Speculator;7199219

£1.50 for a pack of 8?



No, for packs of four. So it works out the same, really. Both great deals. I am stocked up on batteries now.

This deal is £2.99 for hopefully 16 batteries so potentially 75p for 4 batteries.

Read the threads on here.
You are just so wrong now.

With a battery that DOES hold it's charge, and the "payback" in as few as 2 or 3 charges, with a life of hundreds of charges, even that argument doesn't hold water now.

Now long lasting rechargeables are so cheap, if that is "tying up" your finances, then you really do have problems :-(

If you are going to argue a point on a technical issue, at least quote something specific!

It has been discussed at length on here (and elsewhere) and I couldn't be bothered to look for it when it is widely known that in practical usage, low self discharge rechargeable batteries work in just about everything, so far I haven't found anything they don't work in, (nor can remember anyone on here coming up with any either) whereas standard rechargeables do fail to work in a fair few gadgets.

(Perhaps someone will remember the specific discussions where this has been aired?)

Thanks for shre. I use recharable too but can never find any with chage when u need one. Alwyas handy to keep some of these in the house, heat and rep added.

Well, it didn't work in my nephews toy lorry that he got for his birthday. The rechargeables (standard rechargeables. not Eneloop) were fully charged but I swapped it for four normal 1.5v AA batteries and the toy worked perfectly.

Clearly you don't understand what I posted, as that is precisely what I did say about standard rechargeables, which is precisely why people often give up on them.
That would be fine, but I am not talking about standard rechargeables.

Sorry, I have read it again, and I can't spell it out in any more clearly or make it any less complex, I had thought it was a simple concept, so you had better just keep buying disposables if the concept is beyond you - I give up :-(

2.99/8=less Than 19p????

Ditto :x
Ordered eight, and got eight 4-packs - not the eight 4+4s that the website shows...
At a shade over 37p per battery it's nowhere near as good a deal as it should be.
(All credit to the OP, though - he wasn't to know we'd be stiffed.)

The pic on the website shows 4+4.
The description says "This pack contains 4 + 4 AA (LR6) Duracell Plus batteries."


Edit - have now sent a polite email to customer support.

Ive just phoned up the guy says that it says on the features that its only 8 batterys
Where it says this pack contains 4 + 4 he says that means 4 and then 4 free under the bogof offer
Another dodgy deal for tesco

I just phoned back to argue some more they put me through to after sales i explained i ordered 3 lots for 8.97 and should have received 48 batterys but only received 24 he gave me a full refund to order another set

Likewise ordered 4 x 4 (+ 4), total expected 32. Received 16.

Got full refund and told to keep tthe 16 I'd received.

Free batteries! Love it

I should've phoned instead of emailing. 2 days later and still no reply. Will give them another day or two...

Phoned and they apologised and got me to order the same again but once it went through they processed a refund so getting what I ordered - 32 batteries!

You'll get the same thing mate. Dont think they have those 4+4's around at the moment.
Just keep the batteries this time and ask for a full refund.

I ended up with a £10 refund. Not quite as good a result as others, but much better than the deal posted.
32 Duracell Plus batteries for £1.96. Can't complain... ;-)

Thanks again OP
