Stocked up before Christmas - also includes the AAA size, same deal.
Hot from me.

"I think it's a great bargain."

I think it's a total waste of money.

Currently a far better option and you will be using them still in years to come.

I have used rechargeable batteries for years. You were not able to use them for applications where they would be needed for too long as they lost their charge such as clocks or smoke alarms.
The 7 Day shop batteries above have solved this problem so there is no excuse for anyone to use "Throw away" batteries any more . Save the Planet, recharge.

At poundland £1 for 14 AAA or AA Huyndai or 12 AAA or AA Kodak

The Huyundai ones mentioned aren't great. Vouch for the Energiser Home Bargain ones. Work a treat in 360 / Wii controllers. Good life

So... from that rant, we can then only assume your motive in posting is to ensure that people who do not know better spend more money on buying batteries that are a waste of money?

Is this because of some sort of vested interest because you sell them, or is there some other reason behind that post that I can't see?

People are welcome to tell me what to buy all day long if it is going to save me money and end up being more convenient too. However No-one is telling anyone what to buy, just making sure they know the options - there is very much a need to let people know too - on MANY threads there are people who subsequently moved to the LSD rechargeables who really had no idea that the new LSD rechargeables existed before that. The fact that they get round all the drawbacks of older type rechargeables is a revelation as, they are not just money saving, they offer better convenience, and are less polluting too.

Now if you want to stay in ignorance, then by all means ignore what we say, but don't assume because you can't do the mathematics and work out the savings potential, that others will want to remain in ignorance too.

Read the title of the thread.
Energiser batteries.
Simple.
Not everyone can afford the initial outlay for rechargeables.Most people are aware of their options.
It`s a simple case of stop preaching.

I have some really good 2300 rechargeables, but find these energisers from Home Bargains work and last much better in my sons remote control car. Good deal.

Hot deal, use these for my bike lights, I find rechargables don't last anywhere near as long, if they're flat or I forget to charge them then I'm a bit stuck as the 6 hour charge time or whatever isn't practical when I have to leave for work that very minute, where as with these I can just pop some fresh batteries out of the pack.

Might cost a bit more in the long term but I'm willing to accept that, for these energizer batteries it is a good deal.

In which case they are not the really good rechargeables you think they are!

Well, if you forget to buy them, disposables are no use either - everything needs SOME input by the user!
The the whole point of Low Self Discharge Rechargeables is there is less input byt the user!, After they have been charged, you leave them and when you come to take them out and they still work, unlike standard rechargeables, which may well be flat if they have been left standing for any period and would then need hours to wait for them charging. We have all been there, and I was often buying disposables too as recently as a few months back, but I don't now.

So, charge them when you take them out, and then forget them until you need them, they are just like disposables. You don't even have to remember to buy more like with disposables!
A concept many people don't get, for some reason :?
They then spend a lot of effort convincing others that rechargeables do not work... I agree standard ones are a bind, these aren't.

More than one set may well be needed, but even with disposables you need spares, hence the reason so many people are buying HUGE boxes of disposables on deals on here! To suggest that the initial outlay is high is crazy, when people are clamouring for hundreds of batteries at a time!
At less than a quid per cell, delivered to the door, and chargers being so cheap in offers on here too, then as few as 3 or 4 uses can see people into the realm of covering that cost, and into almost free battery use for years after that!

Quoted For Truth!

I put the Kodak ones in my handheld Kodak HD camcorder and I got two minutes of footage before they ran out. With all of them. Are they defective clearance batteries or something..?

I know they are good because compared to other batteries , the recharegeables work about 10 times longer in my camera.

Well then, in that case I don't understand what the problem is :?

I've ordered a few packs of these anyway, rechargables may be good in the longterm but I'm always forgetting to charge them and find them dead when they are really needed, at least with a few packs of these in the drawer I know I won't have to cycle to work in the dark without lights because I've forgot to charge.

They last ages in my bike anyway so it isn't going to break the bank... and the bad it does to the environment is counteracted by me cycling to work instead of driving, at the end of the day if I don't chuck 'em in the landfill somebody else will anyway.
