Batteries that are not rechargeable are cheaper a couple of times - but as its negligible the cost of recharging a rechargeable battery - and they cost about a pound a time and can be recharged 500-1000 times - you are looking at a cost of UNDER 1P PER BATTERY/CHARGE (taking buying/charger/charging electricity into account).

Also - most rechargeables now hold far more charge than standard alkaline batteries (at 1.2v rather than 1.5v).

So 30p per AAA battery is far more than under a penny for rechargeable AAAs so its got to be COLD.

Using rechargeables also stops landfils being filled with little chemical bullets.

Looking at the example 500-1000 charges on a rechargable battery = 499 - 999 batteries saved from a landfill.

Imagine a bundle of batteries 9 wide - by 9 deep - by 9 high - that is roughly what one rechargeable battery is saving from getting dumped in a landfill.

The I have listed below costs a pound more - includes a charger (but you are best buying a proper charger to make the batteries last even longer) and will offer over many hundreds of times the usage for a single pound more than the offered standard batteries.

Have some rep for a good detailed post though - as had it not been for rechargeable batteries it would have been a good deal.

thanks for the rep :thumbsup:

Havnt used rechargables for a while as when I did they wouldnt last even half as long in my camera which was really annoying at times. Are they better now than they used to be? If so you may have a convert on your hands as I get through quite a few batteries

I get almost three days on my PMR radios when left on with 3 x 1000mAh rechargeables (almost entirely on standby) - the manual claims 48 hours on alkalines (which it seems tend to be about 700mAh).

The newer higher mAh rechargeables seem to have shorter lives when not used than the older lower mAh ones did- but the Hybrio/Eneloop type mentioned above (which are charged when you buy them) are meant to hold 70-80% if unused for a year.

The downside is they have about 15 - 25% less maximum capacity than the new higher mAh rechargeables.

I would guess for a digital camera you are likely to use it a lot over a day or two then not for a while - which would mean you would be best opting for high capacity - if you take a couple of pics a day you would be better opting for the ready charged type (Eneloop/Hybrio).
