So you saved just over a quid for the privilege of having much lower power batteries, which you can only charge two at a time, slowly - Yeah, real bargain that!!

Not voting, as even these rechargeables are not something I would be buying now, as they are not nearly as convenient as the Low self discharge type ("GoodtoGo" from this retailer for example) but yes it's cheap, and still far better than buying disposables.

My personal opinion is spend a bit more on a more sophisticated charger, and use LSD type rechargeables, it will cost more in the short term, but as a long term buy, it is a far better real investment and that way you can end up not ever needing any disposables again, as they hold their charge far better, and will be ready when you need them, unlike the standard type which leads to buying expensive disposables when you go to use them and find them flat.

I got the £5.49 ones off the site when they were this price a couple of months back, very happy with them.

Bought one thanks

good deal - hot and thanks

are you gonna point us in the direction of these batteries then

Great deal, voted hot

I would recommend spending a couple of extra pounds and buying the highly rated Eneloop batteries with charger:

Well he did say that they were from the same retailer; how difficult can it be? But here you go: 7dayshop.com/cat…341

7DayShop Good To Go batteries. They're not as highly rated as the Eneloop ones but are better than most rechargeables

So LSDs r the way forward now? I'm still stuck in the days of rechargeables lol

Hot deal, bought 8 Duracell's this morning off ebay for just under 9 notes.

I bought one of these a few weeks back after someone recommended it on hotdeals . I have been using the batteries in my xbox 360 hand controls and am well impressed . I must have played for around 8 hours so far and the bar meter is still 3 quarters full with no recharging at all . Excellent value !!!

charges 4 batteries at a time - 2 front & 2 back - leave over night - works for me!

If you use rechargeable batteries a lot, then it makes much more sense to get a flexible charger. I picked up one of these:

7dayshop.com/cat…029

More expensive at £8.49 without batteries, however it comes with cables which allow charging from mains, 12v car battery, or USB. Other features include:

* A useful screen for showing battery status
* Discharge function (useful for NiCads, if you have any).
* Charges each battery individually, so you can charge 1, 2, 3, or 4 batteries (no need to charge them in pairs).
* Auto cutoff when each cell is full, rather than timed, so it doesn't overcharge cells.

I also recommend the Good To Go batteries, they're very useful if you're replacing your old NiMH batteries.

Don't skimp on the charger either, you want one that has INDIVIDUAL charging circuits for each cell otherwise your going to significantly reduce the life of your cells due to overcharging.

I use a GP PowerBank Smart 2 which has Individual -ve delta v cut off, Individual temperature sensors, Individual safety timer and once it has intelligently calculated that the cell is fully charged using -ve delta v cut off it drops it into a trickle charge mode.
I charge my Eneloops on the NiCad setting as the charge current is half (1A) of the NiMh setting yet it still use's the same -ve delta v cut off detection. Obviously this means my charge times are longer but it also means my cells will last longer and hold charge better.

**EDIT** Just seen wibbkeboy's post above and having a quick scan of the product it looks VERY good for the money, get that charger instead, much better for your cells and the small difference will pay for itself after only a few dozen charges of your cells (ie they will not need replacing anywhere near as soon as a dumb timed charged cell)

Is there really any difference between those and Eneloop?

I agree - having the option of using USB is a real bonus. The only downside is that USB has limited power, so charging 4 AA can take a bit longer (5 hours minimum, I think). Of course this charger isn't all that fast either.

Oh, sorry, it just looked like 2 batteries, not quite as bad as I thought then, My comments on LSD type rechargeables still stands though, although ANY rechargeable has to be better than the mountains of money people waste on disposable batteries, that's just insanity!

Precious little, a small percentage at best, although that Eneloop offer with the charger is still a decent one, and again, leaves disposables back in the Ice Age!

Well any rechargeable is still going to come in handy, so don't get rid of them; but once you use the LSD type, and as long as you charge them when you swap them, put them away, and even if it's weeks or months later when you come back to them, they still have plenty of charge left :-)
