Kodak AA/AAA alkaline batteries 8 for £1 at Poundland

Found 23rd Nov 2014
Now that the 10 packs of Ikea batteries have gone up to £1.79, I reckon this is the cheapest deal currently available for AA/AAA alkaline batteries (of course you can get zinc carbon ones much cheaper - Poundland have 20 for £1).

These Kodak ones don't do that well in tests, they've probably only got 1/2 to 2/3 the capacity of "premium" batteries like Duracell Ultra Plus (or whatever their current branding calls them), but they're great for the price, and particularly good for anything which tends to kill batteries because you've left it on, rather than because the batteries have been used up.

The offer packs are branded "4+4 free" which is a bit of a swiz because you normally get 6 for a pound (as seen in the picture).

Found in Twickenham, but presumably nationwide depending on stock levels of previous packs.

Didn't this used to be a pack of 10 with 2 extra free??

That was for the Zinc Chloride variety, now 10+1. These are the much longer lasting alkaline variety. Very good value for money. Stock up while you can.

A very good deal for alkaline batteries. Fill your boots at this price. See here for an interesting chart showing just how well they compare to premium brands. hotukdeals.com/dea…354

I bought these a few weeks aho for my sons toys most have ran out already and they weren't even strong enough for some to work x

my local poundland in Eltham is doing 16 of these S*%T batteries for your £1

These batteries are awful. You will be lucky if they last a week on things like toothbrushes. It's a false economy. Stick with Duracell of the Kirkland Signature AA and AAA sold by Costco. They are made by Duracell and are a great deal. Only thing is - they come in a 48 pack! They also come with a 10 year shelf life.

Standard price where's the deal?

These are better than Duracell Procell, so heat from me.

I bought a pack of these about 2 weeks ago.
These used to be 6 in a pack so this 8 pack is great value.
More recently I have seen Alkaline batteries sold in packs of 5's so this is definitely a bargain.

It seems many people mistake these (Alkaline batteries) for the Zinc batteries which comes in packs of 12 or more and which do not last as long.

It is a good price for batteries and I brought them for a while but have now stopped as they don't last very long. I wasn't expecting a lot but I'd rather pay more for more expensive ones personally rather than keeping changing them.

same here they dont work for long unfortunately

Ikea batteries still showing as £1.50 for 10 on their website.

That will be for AA batteries. Assuming that's correct, these appear to be pretty much as good as any other alkalines. Again, do NOT confuse alkalines with the much cheaper and much lower capacity zinc chloride ("high power") versions.

xtralife are the alkaline ones and are ok.

xtralife?

These are great but the older gold versions were better again. These last ages and we used them in my sons toys, door bell and remotes. I agree with the procell comments as they are totally dire.

It's 8 batteries for a £1, instead of 6 - which makes this hot.

Are you joking?

The Kodak Xtralife batteries are brilliant, and are better than some types of Duracell.

People still can't understand the difference between alkaline (which these are) and zinc chloride (which these aren't), and they don't seem to want to make the effort to find out. Ah well, your loss.

Nice

^This.

I would have loved to have got this many Alkaline batteries for £1 as a kid.

The a good way to tell if a battery is any good or **** is by the weight, with the exception of lithium batteries, the heavier they are normally the longer they last.

Isn't it amazing how ignorant many people are about disposable batteries!

Despite many postings explaining the difference between zinc and alkaline, and explaining the comprehensive battery test review (shown above) showing Duracell alkaline are no better (maybe worse) than the Poundland ones, we still struggle to get this thread to 100 degrees whilst the Duracell bunnies bounce ever upwards!

And yet people that come to HUKD are supposed to be savvy shoppers.

Sad.
