Need I say more.:p

It's because they're zinc chloride batteries. Good for remote controls and low power devices. For digital cameras, mp3 players etc you need at least Alkaline batteries. Energiser Lithium are great but cost quite a bit. I think poundland do also do alkaline batteries but you get less in a pack for your £1

Learn something new everyday... So zinc arent that powerful just for low use and Alkaline are needed for high power items..... :oops: Can you tell im blonde!

handy for kids xmas toys :P

but would not turn my camera on either but tbh with devices such as cameras you should be using rechargeable ones any way much better value for money

and £1 land have been doing these for years

Seem to have so many remotes these days, so probably come in handy!

How many more of these cheap crappy batteries are we going to see :-(

Worthless, leak prone rubbish the whole lot, and STILL not cheaper than rechargeables, never mind better value.

Still the dumb arguments will come thick(!) and fast...........

You can lead horses to water, but they will insist on crapping in it instead of drinking :-(

For disposables, the hierarchy in terms of flexibility and longevity runs from low to high as follows:

Zinc-Carbon->Zinc-Choride->Alkaline->Lithium

Zinc-Chloride disposables are often marked 'Heavy Duty': this is relative to inferior Zinc-Carbon disposables, rather than Alkalines. Needless to say, the price generally increases in a similar fashion!

Rechargeables tend to last longer in high-current devices such as digital cameras, but their high self-discharge rate may mean they'll be flat if you leave them a month or longer between charges, unless you're using modern 'Hybrid' rechargeables.

Seriously poor batteries these....wouldn't bother with them for any application.

i bought these and they lasted under 3 hours in my xbox 360 controller

truly awful

I have some for spare when the rechargeables in the wiimotes run out. Also have them in the wii fit board and they've lasted a fair while in there
