Very good value for money I've never seen them this cheaper. It's only in the store I guess.

I've got these and they are ok to use
Neither are I presume pre-charged/low self-discharge types. I only buy those nowadays, because they offer a lot more versatility for not much more.

I think that most nimh batteries come fully charged and with low drain shelf life and no memory effect. I think that's the difference between ni-cad and nimh rechargeable batteries.

Unfortunately that is incorrect. There are two distinct types of NiMH cell and certainly the Tronic ones can be either. The only downside of the LSD type (apart from cost) is a slightly lower capacity, which in practice can be ignored as it is usually cancelled out by the lower rate of self-discharge. en.wikipedia.org/wik…ery

No Problem. I'm afraid it's hard to recommend things as prices and technology change, and reviews are sometimes contradictory. You could consider when the Lidl LSD Tronics come in, or perhaps look at Vapextech. Otherwise, check the camel for what's happening with Amazon.

They are rubbish, I only wish I'd kept receipt to take the 12 back I bought.
