Thanks you have reminded me I paid for some of these last last week but haven't collected yet.
Pity it wasn't 50 AA and 50 AAA batteries.
1.50£ for 10 from IKEA. Same thing but no need to buy 100.
I wonder how many of these will get dumped into a landfill.....

They have the AAA at 14.99 aswell. May be a bit excessive depending on what you want them for!
Bought these a few years ago, they lasted pretty well but had issues with them leaking. They may have been a bad batch but do keep an eye on them if they are going in anything delicate/expensive

Use my simple formula:

total number of these batteries produced MINUS total number of these batteries that don't get dumped into a landfill

What numbers do I plug into your formula?
Deep down some part of me must be an alcoholic as first glance of the deal pic had me thinking this was one huge crate of tins of beer

...and the AA bit still made sense!!

Originally, maybe 25 years back or more, alkalines never seemed to leak, other than when way past their 'use by' date. Then in more recent times I've had a few budget alkalines leak while still in date. It seems some lower priced alkalines are not so good in that respect. So I'd be wary of stocking up n 100 budget brand batts.

Yes, we should all be using rechargables, but it's all down to convenience.

Are you going to put rechargables in all those clocks and remotes ... plus the hassle of finding they're flat in storage,or paying even more for eneloop style precharged,,,
na ive seen more

They do a 60 pack, which is 40 AA and 20 AAA.
Are these significantly better than the Panasonic or Kodak cheapies that I usually get in Poundland or Home Bargains? They’re a bit dearer but if they last a bit longer that would be well worth it Cheers!
Brilliant timing. I bought these around this time last year and it's been brilliant having a constant supply in the house. Down to my last few so will reorder

In a battery driven car!
Think its time for me to start using low drain rechargeable batteries on stuff like clocks etc there prices havn't rocketed like alkiline ones.

Primark do really good value AA or AAA's in packs of 10, 130ish,
good value, and you don't have to buy 100,

you sure? was £1.95 for 10 in Edmonton Ikea last week. Will be crying into my meatballs if i bought 100 potentially leaky batteries from maplin last week for nowt!! ;-)
They've been this price for a while now. I bought these and 100 x AAA at the same price back in November when the deal was originally posted.
Anyone got these that can confirm they're better than poundland ones??

If you're buying the ones that are 10 or more for a quid, they're zinc chemistry and these are far better as they're alkaline. If you're buying the Kodaks which are 5 for a quid, they're about the same - but more expensive than these.

We only have rechargeable ones at home, using them for everything -from remotes to videogame controllers, clocks, etc. and not a single problem. Always keeping a couple or two fully charged as spares and then just cycling them as needed.

The "convenience" or the lower initial price of using standard ones vs rechargeable really isn't worth when considering the amount of unnecessary toxic waste produced, packaging... I really wish people in general were a bit more conscious about this stuff but hey. I hope that those who buy these batteries (hundred at a time no less) at least dispose of them appropriately.

I replied to you friend but it is obviously nothing personal, just speaking my mind about something that should not be happening in late 2017.
These are fine in constant drain apps like clocks but they've ruined the battery compartments of a few of my sons toys (within date) where i've had to scrape the cack off the terminals to get the connections working again. Maybe Maplins design them to naturally biodegrade over time into a rusty goo.................my plastics recycling bin includes batteries so that passes the guilt buck from me onto the council if they dont dispose properly...............i might give these one more shot..........but one more rusty goo attack and thats it.............RIP

I did try that a while back but wasn't diligent enough in keeping spares charged and ready,
might retry with all eneloops/ precharged.

what do you do at christmas? I use rechargables where I can but when I put the decorations up I got through 30 AAs alone. Not a chance I'm keeping that much charged and on-standby. I keep my dead batteries and drop them in the battery bins at tesco btw.

Same here. No need to buy disposables.
What is the best type of battery for remote controls for TV etc? Cheapo alkaline like these, rechargeables, something else?

Rechargeables. Even if it means a little more effort to charge them vs. throwing away, you'll be doing your bit for the environment.
crazy price
