Morrisons have packs of two USBCell batteries, the kind that can be recharged by flipping the top over and putting them into a USB socket. They're marked up as £5.99 but the end display at my local store had them at £2.98 and that's what they scan in at, so it's not just a local deal. They're 1300mah and could prove handy especially at Christmas, with all the electronic gizmos being exchanged.

these are shocking they leak acid after only a few uses. i'd never even think about buyin them again (same brand i used before)

avoid!!!

Poundland have them from time to time.

Ideal solution to low power solutions like the xbox controller or the PS3 bluray remote plus charge in just about everything, got 4 from poundland for the obvious amount each and they are quite handy but not worth powering anything more intensive, but things like remotes they are well worth it for. Not on at poundland at the moment as far as I have seen so have some heat.

Did you find these at the battery stand? (stupid question?). Looked today and couldnt see anything other than energizer rechargeable batteries.

No, they were on the same stand as SD cards and USB sticks.

Ahh ok cheers il have another look later.

I got the exact same thing for £1.48 in Morrisons!

How much are they in Poundland;)

A POUND DUMBASS!

Oh wait........ :P

Poundland sell AA battery chargers for a quid. Far better solution, I reckon, especially for those crowded USB ports.

great idea

always compare how many mA hours batteries can hold
thats the battery charge
if you compare poundland batteries with batteries from maplins the figures for mA hours
can be 2-4 times as much.

often in the same poundland you will find batteries with different mA hours

I bought these last year for 47p a pack from PC world, so might be worth checking there first.

Ashens reviewed these on one of his Poundland videos. One leaked acid everywhere, and the other completely lost it's charge after sitting for only a few days. IMO, not worth a pound never mind £2.98.

True, but those were Poundland's own brand Signalex ones, and not the same batteries as these. Those were also 500mah whereas these ones are 1300mah.

i have a few packs worth of these batteries, got them for 47p from currys ages ago. they last well enough in remote controls and wireless mice. never had any leak issues.

If the draw from a USB port is the normal 500Mah then these will only need to be left in for a hour or two, and any longer then thats is possibly why they will leak due to overcharging.

Either way I will avoid as the charging circuitry is just something to go wrong and 1300Mah for AA batteries is poor

Agree 100% (well apart from Mah, it's mAh /penatic)
Get yourself a decent 'intelligent' charger (one that has individual charging circuits for each cell) GP make some good reasonably priced ones imo. Then grab some hybrid cells.

got some yesterday for £1.48 from sheffield. bargain price
