For most people (and the planet) it is better to spend the money on rechargeables. You can pick up 2100mAh pre-charged low self discharge ones for around £5 a pack on 4 on Ebay and other places.

If you still want single use batteries, Wilko you can buy 12 alkaline batteries for £2.15 and according to batteryshowdown.com the brands perform similarly so I don't see how £6 can be a hot deal.

Not everything can work on rechargeable batteries and all batteries aren’t good for the environment no matter what the green lobby have been telling us for years about driving EVs.

Why?


Just messing, Tesco good at cancelling deals hah
Works out the same as Wilko's..... 8 Pack £4
The ikea batteries are on a similar level and cheap also. Look them up instead. I converted the year and more than happy with them.
Get these instead
ikea.com/gb/…02/
Sainsburys and Morrisons both have these for £8 but BOGOF
Bought these in store the other day
Good value

This Is Not A Glitch. I saw the same price in store at Hammersmith. Bought 1 couple weeks back.
I just love the Duracell marketing ploy. Check out bigclivedotcom

Most reasonable branded alkalines perform fairly closely with one another, yes some are better but when you look at the battery tests done you find the vast majority of alkalines are all within about 10-15% performance of each other, so I'd get what ever is on offer.

I'd get 40 x AA alkaline for £5.40 from CPC, (free delivery on £6 spend) of course too late for Christmas.

I refused to pay £5.50 for 4 AAA in my Sainsburys Local.

Thats an 800% markup on the, just as good, Wilko ones.

How are they good value when they cost nearly three times the price of comparible alkaline batteries?!

Thanks for this. I expect many people go for the Duracell thinking back to adverts in the 1980s and end up getting really poor value for money as a result.
Works same price per battery at wilko too hotukdeals.com/dea…500 - if thats more convenient.

They are good value because of the high quality of the batteries compared to your blog standard ones which last hardly as long as these

Take a look at some battery tests and you find most alkaline batteries are pretty close in performance, these Duracell Ultra's are not better than Ikea alkaline or Morrison extra long life, at least when these tests were done on 'batteryshowdown' website. Fact is there's very little between most alkaline batteries, which are all vastly better than cheapo zinc chloride type batteries. I'm not saying Duracell and Duracell Ultra's are not good, they are, but you can't just assume they're vastly superior when tests and comparisions show otherwise.

Tests show performance of all alkaline battery brands is similar, as posted on here.
