The one thing I will say about Duracell is in the event the batteries leak they will refund the price of the item damaged, happened to be recently on a remote and got a refund of the replacement cost.

Ladda all the way.
They might not be as pretty on the outside but they are £1.49 cheaper and will perform practically identically.

Agreed, although these are decent for folk who can't get to an IKEA

They're both made in Japan by FDK.
Ordered, thanks. I've always used Eneloops but these perform just as good in tests.

They will have a lower capacity.
Nice but which charger u all got?
Thanks @Dejaque, ordered these and also ordered the AAA as they are also on offer

Evidence?


It tells you the capacity on the batteries...

Superficially id agree... but battery labelling is not known for honesty.
Hence asking if you know about any evidence?
Good Charger is just as important to long life and performance
I have both and personally did not see any difference at all. Ladda says 2450, duracell says 2500. They have the same tech underneath.

Really, that’s the next half hour spoken for whilst searching it up.
mccririck09/10/2019 19:46

They don't.
They are manufactured in Japan just like all cells in the same category so the only difference is the branding.

Why? Never bought rechargeable batteries for years before this tech. I’ve got an Duracell value nimh charger from 2011 it’s still usable?
Amazonbasics (Panasonic?) is much better than Duracell.

Which charger do people use?
Our lass highly recommends these , she’s says she now gets a full hour from her rampant rabbit.
I would suggest 6 2600mAh GP Recyko AA for £8.87 is better value at CPC Farnell. Spend another 61p for free delivery.

Functional yes, but 'value' suggests it's a basic timed charger that just turned on the power for a fixed amount of time (or worse still, a charger that never turns off).

That results in either less than optimal capacity because the batteries are uncharged, or the batteries failing sooner because they're overcharged.

If you're buying a battery charger you want one that tries to detect when the batteries are full, often marketed as a smart charger.

Avoid very fast chargers if you want to get the most longevity from batteries, they do sacrifice durability for convenience.
just picked up a couple of packs of AA Ladda 2450 from IKEA this month

LADDA
Rechargeable battery, HR6 AA 1.2V
£5.50/4 pack
"You can recharge these batteries approx. 500 times.
Life time: approx. 5 years."
ikea.com/gb/…76/

as well as some 7dayshop rechargeables

All sorted now .... until I buy some more pointless gadgets
Any recommended charger for these?
I've been recommended the Nitecore D4 charger, check YouTube. Brilliant bit of kit.
mccririck09/10/2019 20:50

Heheh yeah right...

Maybe not Panasonic I can't find the source what I read before, but they use the same technology: "According to the Amazon website, AmazonBasics AA Batteries are made in Indonesia using Japanese technology, and their rechargeable AA batteries are manufactured in Japan." I don't like Duracell at all, if I need I buy Panasonic Eneloop or Amazonbasics for cheaper.

I've never had a rechargeable battery leak.
not overly convinced this is a great deal. there are batteries with higher capacity (EBL £7.49 for 2800mAh) for roughly the same price which can be recharged up to 1200 times (compared to 400 with these). In my opinion these are only 50p cheaper than the 'normal price'

+1 for ikea ladda
I bought these just over two years ago and they're still going strong in my xbox controller. They last ages on each charge and I can't recommend them highly enough!

I'll second this, I have a slightly older version of this and it great.
My Dad has tried to order these from Amazon.... They live on the Isle of Wight....... But Amazon won't deliver as they class them as Hazardous and won't ship on a ship to the Isle of Wight.
! WTF!

Pricey. How many batteries could I have bought from Wilko in what time range to have spent £50
Isnt this commonly available price?
