LR44 batteries - x 5 - £0.99 (along with another 25 batteries you don't need!) @ Poundland

Found 26th Jan 2015
Went looking for LR44 batteries for a gadget thing at home. All the main supermarkets were £2.40 for 2 batteries. But visited PoundLand and they've a selection of 30 batteries which include 5 LR44 batteries for just 99p. They're called something different - some European coding thing or something with different letters and numbers - but I checked online and it's the same battery type.

So fab deal for hearing aid users! The other batteries do watches and stuff...

You can see them on the website here: poundland.co.uk/lei…ack

Hot for title!!

and if you use Barclays pinsentry machine.

make sure you buy a few packets. these really don't last long.

Whenever i use these cheap batteries in things like watches two things happen.
1. The battery dies very soon after I start using it, like within a month or so.
2. The rest of the batteries start leaking a lot earlier than they should making buying loads of them pointless as they wont last long enough to use them all.

Buying renata or maxell one/two pack for £1 saves messing about opening things every month to change out the cheap poundshop batttery.

Put them into watches,lasts one year-same as others more expensive. In calculators and digital thermometers they lasts ages and never leaked.

A better deal is to check out all the Christmas toys being sold off at 5p and 10p in shops as many have several unused LR44 batteries in them!

another waste of money are Poundland's 'heavy duty' (i.e. not Alkaline) batteries

You don't want alkaline watch batteries. They are cheap and don't last long. 'Proper' watch batteries are Silver Oxide.

Agree. But comparing price,they are 20X more expensive (£2 for one cell) and lasts only 2X longer, so whats the point?
Silver oxide cells only good for hearing aids.

exactly I stopped buying batteries from poundshops after having to get my brother to clean the leaked acid out of two radio controlled cars and a wii balance board, also had them leak in a wiimote but thankfully noticed that before it on everything. Its not worth it, I don't mind them not lasting as long as expensive brands but I can't abide the fact they leak as soon as your back is turned, no battery should leak after a few weeks or months really, we all forget sometimes

These are always in £land. Mine have not leaked, but I will agree that they are no good in any watch I have tried them in- they are fine for calculators small torches etc. As said earlier silver oxide are best for watches, just google battery code and you get them cheap on ebay/amazon.

as I said in a earlier post not worth the hassle in case they leak, I bought some cheapo button cell batteries from a amazon seller once, not fakes just cheapo no brands and over half the pack went in the bin because they leaked inside the packets. As for poundshops kodak are the worst and the ones listed as heavy duty, the sony ones don't go as fast if you keep an eye on em you can see it coming but is it worth having to constantly check? Imo no.

What I meant when I put them in watches is that they did not operate the watch, or, if they did only for a day or so. These are good for standbys, but it may be a waste of effort putting them in a watch.

I SHOULD'VE ELABORATED AND SAID THE AA/AA-TYPE BATTERIES.
THERE'S A GOOD REASON (GUILT) THAT POUNDLAND DO BATTERY RECYCLING IN THEIR STORES.

Good for you, did not work in my watches, what more can I say.

Are they duracell or energizer?

Why bother paying to replace the battery in them. Just go in branch and asking for a new one.

My local branch do not replace my batteries. Such a waste.

Get a new one off them, and give the other one back. Pretty simple to do, and leaves them the problem.

LR44/357 - I would rather buy Duracell alkalines at under 40p each and Renata Silver Oxide at 74p each inc postage ( for 10s) from http://stores.ebay.co.uk/****-Media/ unless price is extremely critical and quality unimportant

But why pay for anything, when if you go in branch, there give you it free.

I bought mine for 99p, then sold the other 25 on ebay for... 99p plus postage. So, quids in! 5 free batteries! :-)
