I make it 1 word and the full stop.oO

10 pack of alkalines from Ikea for 99p (usually, but not always) is a much better deal IMO. They might not be quite as long lasting, but don't have to be at 40% of the price. And the majority of batteries don't get fully drained in normal use - they either sit in unused toys, or get fully drained because someone left the thing switched on.

wicked thanks, just run out of these too.

OP: buy a couple of sets of rechargeables and a charger, you'll save a fortune and you'll never need to worry about where to get these things from again.

They've been this price for almost a week now... I bought them on thursday or friday last week

Cheaper in any 99p store or poundland

For Duracell Ultra? Or for rubbish Kodak alkalines? Or zinc-carbon which won't last five minutes in any high-drain application? All the ones you see that are 10 or 12 for a quid are zinc carbon. Ikea is the only place I know you can get 10 alkalines for a pound.

Usually it's a 2pack for 99p in the 99p/poundland stores which would make the equivalent 8 battery pack £3.96 !! I think this is a GOOD Deal. Thanks - Heat added.

how do you get free delivery?

sorry had another item in basket....

Ordered 2 packs. Many thanks.

Nice deal.

Why would anyone want these?

You can still get 12 for 99p long life AAA batteries in Halfords online

Sure they are own brand, but can't see these lasting 3 or 4 times longer.

dont forget 5.05% topcashback for home appliances ^^

Rechargeables don't usually give out 1.5v, makes a different when you need the 3v or so in a high power laser pointer

AAA? Hell of a demand for them.

Cold, hot if it was AA.

The number of applications where it makes a difference is vanishingly small, when you consider that the internal resistance of a rechargeable is generally much lower than that of a disposable cell, so a disposable cell is likely to "droop" under load much more than a rechargeable.

Try it - I've never had a problem.

Rechargeables cost less than a penny to recharge - why would you want Halfords disposables online?

A battery is not a home appliance - it is a consumable.

So if you don't want AAA, what reason is that to vote this cold?
Most people seem to think that this is a good deal so it seems you're in a minority of one.
Personally I'm not voting as I think OP would be far better off with a few rechargeable AAAs
as I found out when my kids were much younger and as has already been pointed out.

How rude are you????

The OP has posted a deal which a lot of people will be interested in. Not everyone wants Halfords cheapos!!

Great deal. Thanks for posting

I'm just surprised they're interested in it at all - this site is about saving money and using disposables of any sort in any quantity (especially in children's toys which eat them) is flushing money down the pan

Banned

rechargeable's are much better value over time over time, ive had 2 sets of theses and this changer for the past 3 years also i have a set of double AA's and the AA to C and AA to D conventers (witch are like 99p for 4), and have never had to buy any batterys since

Ordered 4, thanks.

i do use rechargeables all the time, just alkaline batteries are better for my 200mw laser pointer.

I agree with the laser comment, have you ever tryed a high powered laser pen with a rechargeable battery? i purchased some Duracell 2450mAh ones expecting them to blind my neighbor and was very disappointed.

Heat. Thanks.

Would Duracel ever sell packs of 5 batteries? I always thought they were in multiples of 2's

Thanks OP. x

Alkalines are 6 for a pound in Poundland - AAA or AA .Their crappy rechargables are 2 for a pound, Nobody on this thread know this ?????
Rechargables work fine in my laser pen and cree torch.
Low discharge rechargables are usually the best option, the small voltage gain of alkalines is not enough reason to use old style landfill batteries.
Nobody would fly an electric model plane with these - the waste is too obvious.

Home Bargains sell 10 alkaline AAA and AA for a pound a pack.

those batteries from poundland are rubbish, false economy

Haha - no I haven't; unlike you I have no need to blind my neighbours.

Poundland batteries do have ONE use. Those devices (usualy kids toys) that get used JUST ONCE and get boxed away, never to be seen again. I'm not wasting my copper coloured topped ones on such things!

Well actually...its more complicated than that.

A toy for example that uses four AAs (commonly found) and uses a standard LM7805 series voltage regulator to regulate it to 5 volts, fine you think, four rechargeables are already 5 volts.
Unfortunately such regulators have a phenomenon known as "dropout voltage" which is a voltage they "lose" in the regulating process, so to get the 5v desired, you often need 6+ volts.
Newer regulators used in newer toys (although not always) tend to have dropout voltages in the millivolts, so it's less relevant whether you use alkalines or rechargeables.
Couple that with how the item behaves when it's receiving less than 5v from the regulator, this can be highly variable, some kids toys can randomly stutter or reset - I see that a lot - other things can work fine.
And not forgetting that the discharge curve from alkalines is very long and slow, vs the relatively abrupt discharge of a rechargeable, there is a point at which the alkaline may not be considered flat yet is putting out less than the 1.2v of a rechargeable.
Then add in the variability of capacity of rechargeables, try measuring the capacity of a pack of four batteries you just bought - I have - and it can vary by more than 10%. So one rechargeable could be flat while the others are still going fine.

So, all in all...just do what works, I guess, but don't assume a battery is just some black box that gives you 1.5 volts.

please dont put cheapy poundland batteries in toys then store them inside - many a toy is destroyed by the green fur of doom due to this!

Oh - for the record, duracell "simply" (not sure whats so simple about them) are 2pk = £1 in poundland at the moment, I know because I bought some yesterday. So this deal is cheap compared to that.

Yes, you can talk about voltage regulators and dropout voltage but in practice the number of cases where you need to use landfill batteries nowadays is vanishingly small.
