For this quantity it's worth considering a charger and rechargeable batteries as an alternative.

No-one should be buying non rechargable batteries in this quanty in this day and age, we should be moving away from disposable battereries.

Couldn't agree more. As consumers we should be looking at making as many little changes as we can to our every day lives to ensure we're not selfishly adding to the global warming crisis. If everyone had the same attitude, it would make a huge difference. Rechargeable batteries are probably cheaper in the long run anyway - even cheaper than a deal like this.

Rechargeable batteries are typically 1.2V whereas non-rechargeable are closer to 1.5V. Depending on how the circuit is designed you may find it will not work with rechargeable batteries. I've seen it many times.

Very good batteries in my opinion.

Last ages even in high power devices. The kids used to use them in the Wii remotes and certainly just as good if not better than the big boys.

Heat and reminder that TopCashback offers on card cashback for Maplin.

Seems these do very well in high drain tests, and pretty average in low drain tests. So at this price seems like a good deal, plenty available near me.

Is this personal experience, or do you have a link to test results? Thanks

I've bought these before and I've had a few leaks, personally wouldn't recommend. Ikea batteries are comparable in price and performance but are available in smaller pack sizes

Nonsense, there are bad low powered rechargable batteries, but as long as you get the right ones they will work whatever the device says.

Nope it says in the instructions not to use rechargeable and when I did it gave the wrong temperature.

Great price, ordered!

Not according to benchmark tests I've read, in fact quite the opposite - bang for buck, they're in the top three recommendations.

What about the £2.50 handling charge at CPC? Just to clarify, I added three packs of twenty so well over the £5 limit.

Though you would be better off getting a battery charger and some panasonic eneloop batteries off ebay for cheap - theyre brilliant, they last forever and hold a good charge even after many years/charges. Eneloops are cheap on ebay too.

No need to buy a 100?

Bit 1989, can't believe people are not using rechargeable batteries (which actually last longer) and save you a fortune while being green. What is not to like with rechargeable batts?

Easily - rechargable batteries are rated at 1.2V and non-rechargeable are 1.5V. If a device does not support lower voltage (i.e. has no built-in modern low voltage power inverter) - it might not work at all or just use couple of dozen % of power and switch off sooner when voltage drops too low.

Either way, all HUKD members please don't buy non-rechargeable batteries - buynig disposeable just keeps the battery market going and the duracell bunny running faster.

Cheap.

But costly to the environment.

Does anyone have a good recommendation for rechargeable batteries - i'm about to restock. Always used Vapex previously. Thanks

there is no handling fee if you spend £6 inc vat, i ordered some of those batteries last week and was not charged a handling fee

Yeah, as others pointed out, if you have the need for HUNDRED batteries I would really hope you consider rechargeable batteries instead. It's just not about the personal cost of the product on itself but the waste produced for no real reason.

It is almost 2018, we should be really getting smarter about these things.

Energiser is my personal choice of rechargeable battery. They have proven to last well. Reliable and charge quick, good brand really. Also available in different specs, I tend to go for the higher specs, which means last longer and less changing of batts. A good thing with Energiser is there are available in supermarkets. ASDA often have them on good offers like 1/3 off or buy 2 packs for a nice discount, like packs that might cost £12 can get 2 for £18 most of the time.

Well I tried to order three packs, then two, and never did get rid of the handling charge. Signed in, signed out again. Reordered and still there. Ordered the Maplin ones eventually to save my blood pressure. Will share batteries amongst friends and relatives. Thanks for the suggestion though.

That's times we live in. Even devices can be offended and reject AA batteries for being different.

Oh the delivery was free. Just couldn't lose the HC. Most likely because I registered after filling my basket but before checking out. Website felt old fashioned and clunky though. Certainly compared to Maplin's.

non rechargeable will very quickly drop to 1.2v or below and keep on dropping, rechargeables will start at 1.2v but are less likely to go lower as quickly.

They're zinc batteries. They last nowhere near as long as the alkaline ones in this deal. Poundland's cheapest alkalines are Kodak xtralife, 6 for a pound.

Post links..

I have a smart charger that shuts off when a battery is fully charged. I have recharged these batteries, even though they not rechargable. Unfortunately they really only last 2-4 recharges but it is possible and slightly better on the environment.

Stock up for Christmas? Yeah, these will go great with my jumper, socks, hankies and Old Spice aftershave...
