good deal.

AA Active charge are 2.99 at B&M aswell.

hi guys,
Might wanna keep in mind this deal too

definitely a good deal, and not that much more expensive than disposables, say double the price or so, so really worth using instead, to save money in the longer term.

temped for the triple a batteries

i will show my ignorance now,,can these duracell batteries be charged by an ,,energiser charger or does it have to be the duracell one,,told you ime ignorant?

thanks.

I've had bad experience with these batteries. They are very poor at holding their charge. Fully charged battery will rundown after about a week unused!
Also mixed reviews on Amazon.

I am afraid that's not unusual, although it's at the bad end of normal for NiMH batteries, and is the reason I don't buy standard rechargeables any more, whatever the price.

For discussion see this thread, (as posted this week) - hotukdeals.com/ite…309
There are these that argue against it (!), but in practice, the "new technology" ones get round the problem for little or no more cost, and as a result I haven't used a single disposable battery in many months, and saved a good amount too.

asda sell these supreme for £9.99 instore. Active charge 6.99

Great price. I paid similar for some 1700s a few weeks ago and thought that was a good deal.

Heat........!

These are from 7dayshop

Sorry I voted cold by mistake.
Hot for me if any moderator can change it

All batteries do the same

Strange how they are £5.20 if you go direct through 7dayshop.

Still looking for a good deal on the ones that hold there charge, none in the B&M Bargains by me!

Brought a couple of packs of these.

That's a good price; however they can be got for 52p more (£5.20) in 7dayshop if they sell out in amazon.

Got to agree with mdinch.
These are awful batteries, the worst that i have, don't hold charge.
Have uniross and energizer that are far better, good price but rubbish batteries

Clearly missing the whole point I was making earlier, there are now rechargeables which do NOT do the same, "new technology" Eneloop/Hybrio/Instants type keep most of their charge for a LONG time, cost little more, or often even less than these very mediocre things!) and for this reason I don't buy this standard type at all now, whatever their price!

Where can we buy these "new technology" ones for "little more" please?
Thanks.

I am saying all batteries discharge........ which they do. Some may have different rates of discharge but if they dont get used they discharge. Like car batteries etc. So the simple rule is don't charge it up if your not using them? Simplz

No, they are all better since they actually can hold their charge and please point out exactly where in your question you specified that they had to be Duracell. Oh, that's right, you didn't.

The ]Duracell branded 'instant' batteries are about twice the price of the equivalent Duracell branded 'regular' batteries. They are a much better bet though in equipment that takes more than a week or so to drain batteries (cameras, radios and the like) as they simply do not discharge at the same rate.

I don't use the Duracell branded ones because of the cost - the links provided are much better value. Batteries are not all the same but the non-Duracell branded ones work fine. If you like the reassurance of the Duracell name on the side then you pay the premium for it.

The usual argument still abounds lol, voted cold as these are rubbish batteries as are the majority of rechargeables ( unless of course you pay an extortinate amount for high mah ones )

I have had good experiance with Vapextech and 'instant'

I use the Panasonic Infinium branded ones (which at 7dayshop are around £6.79), and these work great. Had loads of them, and never had any probs...

If there IS any reassurance. Perceived reassurance might be a better way to put it!

Brand fans are brand fans, the power of high cost advertising is not to be ignored, unfortunately they don't take a lot of notice of people who are users of the alternative products :-(

Read my first post, there is a thread on here, and there is a link in that.
£5.40 for 4 & £10.50 for 8x AAs currently,

Right...so would it be better to go for 2100 'new technology' batteries (like these: 7dayshop.com/cat…055 ) rather than 2700 of the regular ones?

I bought my girlfriend a digital camera but she only has 1400 of the regular rechargeable and they get used pretty quickly. Will it be okay to use an old generic charger on the new ones as well?

right you lot have convinced me, just gone and bought some, hopefully will work with my stand alone charger, other wise its going back to amazon.
heated up as well, thanks op:thumbsup:

I've never used that brand myself (but 7dayshop sound OK from what people say on here) but I'd say that these are your best bet for a digital camera. I only buy these type of batteries now - the only advantage the 'normal' ones with massive mAh ratings have is for things like the kids remote control cars which eat batteries.

And as long as your charger says it does Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) you'll be fine.

No, you were saying that they all go flat in a week........ which they don't.

So what's the mAh of an alkaline equivalent then?

pibpob;6867622

So what's the mAh of an alkaline equivalent then?



The average Mah of rechargeable is around 2100 - 2900 or thereabouts!

HOWEVER this is meaningless when it comes to real life. Because for high drain applications rechargeables will do sooooo much better - in a digital camera for example. But for low drain applications normal batteries will outlast rechargeables e.g. in a clock for example.

Also Low Self Discharge (LSD) batteries have now effectively made normal AA batteries redundant, with 70% of the capacity remaining a LSD battery will easily last for 1 year in a clock, quite easily much longer.

Therefore the only real use for normal batteries is for emergency tools such as flashlight/torches etc.

Hybrio/Eneloop/ActiveCharge/Instant etc. are the way forward. I have not used normal batteries in a long time.

Thank you for showing how daft the statement I quoted was. But still the disposable "offers" in here have people wetting themselves with excitement. Astonishing, isn't it?
