These are cheap for a reason.



Which is?

(I guess you haven't read the battery performance reports?)
Great deal, not bad performance batteries from experience as well.
You can get the Panasonic 10 pack for a £1 but these last longer than those, so good value if you have prime or spend over £20.

These are the xtralife ones, so last a lot longer than those ones, loads of shops sell 10 packs for a quid but they don't last that long. These will last a bit longer hence for the price aren't too bad in my opinion, having 3 young kids I use a lot of batteries and will be buying some of these.

Poundland sells kodak xtralife in a pack of 6 so works out the same price 10 packs (60 Batteries)= £10. Also sometimes stock an 8 pack of the xtralife meaning your getting 20 more batteries than this deal. My local poundland currently stock the xtralife 8 pack AA batteries. poundland.co.uk/lei…ack

Ian I might give these ones a try, thanks for the info.
If you're getting through that many batteries surely it's time to buy rechargeables?
Zinc batteries should be banned. Batteries are difficult to recycle and throw away items like one-use batteries have no place in the future. Atleast Alkaline batteries have a decernt life, so hot from me!
I use these in my Flashkits with my DSLR's - no problems with lifespan. Can't say this is much of a deal though, has been this price since I can remember when I purchased in September..
They were 4+4 free at poundland (xtra alcaline... The zinc useless ones were pack of 12)

So for a tenner, you'd get 80

Cold from me

emm ... considering they these are no cheaper than the xtralife ones at poundland ... no
Pretty sure these are 6 for a pound at Poundland akso the Ikea ones are good if you can get them
Hot from me. Same price delivered to door.... Yes pls!
cheers OP
great stuff just won a £10 voucher flamedeer and now used on batteries for xmas yea
The Kodak xtralife ones are really good value. Extensive rundown here and here. The ikea ones worked out cheaper per Watt hour than these when he did the tests - 10 in the ikea pack, 6 in the poundland, but if you buy the 8 packs from poundland then that beats the ikea making them the cheapest.

And Big Clive uses these a lot, and I'm not arguing with Big Clive.

Not voting as you can get them cheaper at Poundland but they are good batteries and not cheap for a reason.

I have 3 young kids and many, many battery powered toys, very expensive to buy rechargeable batteries and kids don't like waiting at Christmas for you to recharge them, they want it to work now and not later! Personal preference and there is no right or wrong, sometimes when you have a big family it is what is more convenient as well.

You might want to consider swapping batteries between toys.

A modern charger only takes a few hours to recharge AAs anyway, so as long as you have a few spare....

Agreed, the up front cost per rechargeable battery is much higher than this.
Thanks, ordered - needed to use up a voucher on Amazon and these will do nicely.

Kids these days have many toys that take a lot of batteries and generally they are secured into the toy with a screw, and a child changes from one toy to another quite regularly. I personally don't have the time to @rse about changing batteries every few minutes. Like I said personal preference and probably the same with others as why sell them in big packs if not to use them. You seem against using normal batteries and prefer rechargeable ones, so it seems you are trolling a little bit here on this deal, so to stop you annoying me I have set to ignore your comments. Have a nice day.

The normal Kodak ones in Poundland you get 16 of are zinc carbon and are crap. The xtralife last at least three and a half times as long and if you're using them in something high drain then over six times as long.
