Beat me to it 🤣
Really good article about battery power/cost. Worth a read when deciding on what to buy - batteryshowdown.com
Picked up 8 2400mAh ready to use / 1000 charges AA batteries last night in Lidl for £5.99 last night.

Surely by now Alkaline batteries should be relegated to a very niche corner of the market?
B&M usual price 2 packs for £7.98
Semi Chem sell these batteries for £2.99
Better off buying re-chargeables.

Think about have many single use AAA/AA batteries you've got through over the years. Hundreds? How many of those have you dumped in the bin (be honest)!

If you had bought some Eneloop Pros for example, not only would you have avoided so much unnecessary waste but you would also have saved money.

I never know if manufacturers who put 'do not use rechargeable batteries' in their instructions are in cahoots with the battery companies?
According to the tests - batteryshowdown.com it looks like you'll get better value from other lesser known brands. Cold i'd say
I find with batteries it’s down to what you use them for the scientific results are a bit like the car MPG great in a laboratory different in real applications.

We find these last th longest tried others and go back to these when on offer, if they aren’t then it’s not worth the extra outlay and I would go for Duracell industry or Costco’s own make which are made by Duracell which also make many own brands. Just watch where you by them there are a lot of fake batteries sold out there.
You can get Varta high energy batteries in Homebase, pack of 30 for £8.97 much better value.

Rechargeable batteries are slightly lower voltage (1.2 instead of 1.5) and some equipment may not work properly or detect this as a low battery and warn you the battery is low even when it's not.
If you need more alkaline batteries, I posted this deal for 40 batteries for £5.40
They're not Duracell ultra but still long lasting alkalines

Good points.

I always find, GPUltra batteries, sold at Home Bargains work brilliantly and last ages.
These are Duracell, you are better off getting a more respected brand of battery than these
These guys lie and charge about 3 times the alkaline batteries are worth

they say they last 10 time longer than zinc carbon, but they are NOT zinc carbon they are alkaline, and all alkalines share the same chemistry and last roughly the same amount.

EU need to ban alkalines, its a con, and duracell are the worst offenders
