    Stores closed but they didn't stop trading online. Bought batteries from them online for years, no problems with them at all.

    Wow, Maplins lives!

    Maplins doesn't live, but Maplin does
    Basically equates to 20 x 4 packs at £1 each and a free battery tester.

    How do I know this is good value? Batteries can be rubbish can't they? Also. Lithium are much better I think, is that right.

    How much would this be normally

    Not sure Of the batteries, but the tester alone is a god send, allowing you to check out before disposing batteries. Saved me a lot over the yrs. Knowing what's a dud, nearly dud or a decent voltage.

    Maybe I just got a dodgy batch but I bought a pack of Maplin batteries about a year ago. About a third of the ones I used leaked. Threw the rest away before they caused any more damage.

    Back to AmazonBasics or Kirkland Signature (Costco) which are working fine without leaking everywhere.

    they do leak over a long period of time.

    When I worked in Maplin years back we were always told the batteries were just rebadged Duracell. Whether it’s true or was just the store managers sales tactic I don’t know.

    I used to get them 100 for £9.99, shrinkflation and inflation I guess.

    And I can remember them begging 2/6 for 4 pre decimal currency. What's your point?

    I still have a packet of maplin rechargeable aa batteries that are all a mm too short. Its bizarre. These may be fine though, it was a while ago.
