For around £12 you can get 50xAA Procell (Duracell trade/ proffesional versions) batteries from some very reputable sellers. Bought a few times off the same seller and always had excellent results. Wont post the sellers details but do a quick search and they're the lowest price for 50's.

Oh, go on then, heres the link

I've found Procell batteries leak more easily after they've been used. Never had Duracell branded units leak whereas 3 Procell batteries have failed. I've used quite a few of them so it's not a high percentage but worrying nonetheless.
Does this one still work? hotukdeals.com/dea…058 If so arent ultra power batteries better than power ones ?

Oh dear, doesnt sound good. Cant say I've ever had that problem myself with Procells (I have with genuine Duracells though funnily enough) but will keep an eye on that. I'm guessing you bought you Procells from a 'reliable' seller, i.e. you know for sure they are genuine Procells as non genuine might have a higher risk of that sort of thing. Thanks for the heads up though.
im sure I saw 20 pack of duracels in homebase for £6.75 or something

I have a pack of energizer ultimate aaa which have leaked. Sad thing is they are still unopened in the pack and I may have more than one pack which has leaked. Overall standards have come down as far as quality batteries (duracell & Energizer) are concerned.
Rechargeables do not have a habit of leaking - time to move over to those, perhaps?

its 7dayshop not the best if you want the real thing
I always rated Duracell batteries but I agree with Dont Sell Your Gold that recently the quality is poor as batteries that I had showing an expiry date of 1996 are fine but ones that have been in for less than a year have leaked leaving me with a hefty bill for two remotes and one torch
I will never find throw away batteries a good deal, no matter the price
whats the best rechargeable batteries and charger to get ?

This question is asked so often I suggest you search on here for a thread about rechargeable batteries to save someone having to type it all in again.

The leaked batteries I have are dated 2013 and are the more expensive "Ultimate" variety, which makes it worse. What it's done is relieve me of the confidence of using expensive high quality batteries without fear of leakage in devices.Ones in my PC mouse had leaked, no damage though but high potential for it. Rechargeable ones, I find, tend to lose the capacity to hold charge over a while especially the energizer rechargeable ones in our cordless home phones..

What's wrong with the ones from 7dayshop? Was just about to order the Duracell Plus box of 40...

Cordless phones, unless they are decent (like Siemens ones) do slowly cook rechargeable batteries - you know because the batteries are constantly a bit warm. This also wastes energy. But that is because they charge continuously. Traditional rechargeables also self-discharge over a few months so not good in things like computer mice. Hybrid/pre-charged types are much better and are recommended.

Rechargeables are certainly a waste of money in some applications, but those are few, and it is unlikely someone going for the bulk buy deals posted here will find that they have enough economic uses for the number of disposables they get.

I have no reason to doubt their genuineness, they were purchased online from Components Direct.
