Bought some in North field store. Seems a good price for rechargeable batteries.

Price may be good, but batteries - not!
Had them, good for 7-15 charges, then refuses to accept charge. All in the bin now.
You get what you paid for...

Poundworld does 1000mah rechargeable AA's (Powercell brand).

7-15 charges are a very inaccurate way of showing their lifespan but yet even if true, we can still milk these 7-15 times more than a normal battery then, don't we? I'm gonna put these in a clock so I think I'll be fine... For at least 7-15 charges.

Been using these in motorised salt/pepper grinders and they work fine, they hold their charge well and and cope well with the heavy load the grinders put on them. Charged them around 6 times over 2.5 years and they're still good. Always handy for use in wireless mice etc with them being light.

This price and these batteries have been around for a loooong time

They're not Duracell. That's why everyone's voted cold!

Been using them for years and in regular use and charge they generally last a couple of years being charged once a week.

You do get what you pay for and in this case you get something well worth the 50p a battery.

​rechargeables in such low power drain items like clocks and remotes seems rather a waste, they make sense in something that eats through batteries but a clock can last year's on an alkaline, I'd imagine a rechargeable will self discharge more often than that.

I use these in my wireless headphones work really good get about 12hrs listening so hot from me charged loads of times....X)

800mAh is a very low capacity for an AA cell. Going rate is about £5 for a set of 4 holding 2500mAh each or just over 3 times the capacity for less than 3 times the price, with hundreds of charges before they fail. Might suit a tv remote or a very low drain appliance but there is no point in using rechargeables for those as said.

Easily the worst rechargeable batteries I have owned and I own boxes full of rechargeable batteries. I resorted finally to using these ones in clocks but even there I had to recharge them regularly, which is a pretty wretched feeling, as though the pound store gods are mocking me for trying to keep them going. Obviously you don't expect much for the price but still I stupidly bought several packets of AA and AAA in one of those reflex "How bad could they really be for so little money?" moments. I had a bit more luck with the AAA ones but resorted to using them in a torch. I definitely wouldn't use either the AA or AAA in anything that you use regularly that you depend on. This is nothing against Poundland. I do now and then find bargains in there, just not on this occasion.

These work very well in my Poundland bicycle lights....
