Frequently find that out of stock items are the cheapest anywhere - virtually every DSG offer ending in 97p springs to mind.
Clicked expired :-(

yep, expired on the AAAs, shame

you cant get cheaper aa's on ebay which are imo much better...these dont even state the capacity anywhere - try vapextech on ebay
5.00 delivered for 4 2000mah these types that hold the charge better....or cheaper for the ordinary nimh 2900mah aa's...or even cheaper if you buy in bulk

The AAAs were out of stock when the OP posted the deal!!

Looked at these about 8pm yesterday and they were OOS.

True but the real advantage of these is that they take much longer to lose their charge. Standard NiMH recharables will discharge pretty quickly. In fact there will be practically no charge left if you leave them for a week after charging. However the Hybrio will hold their charge for ages, thereby acting more like traditional non-rechargables. The disadvantage is that they only appear to come in 800mAh and 2100mAh so if you need more powerful (e.g. 2500 or 2700 mAh) batteries you will need to go for NiMH batteries.

It doesn't say whether this deal is for the 800mAh or the 2100mAh ones. If it's 800, then it's not a very good deal. Also these ones - 7dayshop.com/cat…891 - are cheaper and are apparently the same, just rebranded.

Lol - I'm afraid I think you are being a little pessimistic about self discharge of NiMH batteries - I think you'll find that they lose about 2% of their charge a day (at most), which means that they will still have 86% of their charge left after a week (assuming the 2% refers to the total original charge).

I do agree the hybrios are better though, as they will retain 80% charge after 6 months. This makes them great for low drain devices such as remote controls. However, for digital cameras, remote control cars and other high drain devices, the Hybrio holds no advantage, and has the disadvantage of holding less charge as well as being more expensive.

I've got a good selection of both for different purposes!

I think generally the AAA's are ~700-1000mah and AA's are ~2000-2700mah. Its very rare to find 800mah NiMH AA's these days. I'd imagine all the hybrio AA's are standardised at 2100mah and all hybrio AA's at 800mah or there abouts, so no need to worry that they will be really low capacity!

True, I didn't notice the 800mah ones were AAA's.

Ok, maybe a week was an exageration, although I use 2500mAh batteries in a portable audio recorder and if I charge them fully and leave them for over a week, there is never enough charge left in the batteries to even power the recorder. That is why I have ordered a set of these Hybrios.
