I find that my Lidl batteries don't fit in some things as they are slightly too big. also sometimes they go in but won't come out again without some effort.

Yip but I'd say I find the same for most above 2000 irrelevant of brand.. so they have a place for items that don't give the extra space.. But most things that require heavy duty batteries they will fit in fine.. why I wasn't voting either way.. Then accidently voted hot..
Heat from me but as said above the Lidl ones work out better value hotukdeals.com/dea…265

The "Tronic" (black and grey) brand AA's are 2500mAh; I think I have seen some 2800mAh, but not sure where, or if I was thinking of the 9v "E" block. Lidl also do a "M" branded 2000mAh in silver and green.

Both are good batteries that outlasted any of the premium ones I bought.

Also, I have NEVER had an issue with them not fitting something; if anything, they are about 1mm SHORTER than some Uniross AA's I have lying around (came free with a charger).

Happens all to often with Rechargeables for some reason.. stick a bit of sellotape around them (leaving a tab) near the positive end for leverage. I have loads of rechargeables including the earlier version of these, and they are still going strong, years and years old.

It width that is larger but same with all heavy-duty rechargeable battery.. Still rather Lidl I've got all strengths kicking about they do 2000 on 8 for a £5 at times too (good for things that don't require a heavy Duty) Prefer the Xmas ones in the now to the other brand they use though although both are decent and I'd agree as a longterm user of rechargeables that they out preformed big brands too.. I just don't buy anywhere else now..

Maybe sold out.. Were sold out in store closest to me yesterday and only a small amount in the next store I visited.. Came in on Sunday I think.. and usually sell pretty fast especially at this time of year. Will find amongst the other weekly non food deals aisles .. Not with other batteries.. Likely to have another batch in before Xmas..

That's the recommended charging rate, hence it being measured in mA and not mAh.

Ahh. I can see clearly now the confusions gone!
I bought these ones a while back and they were awful. Please check them upon purchase and see if you're happy to keeps them

when did you search the entire store? when the offer was on or just at a random time you felt like it?
why would you search the entire store? they are in the offers bit nowhere else. did you check each space/ticket in the new area? did you check the actual date the offer was on?
Dont forget Aldi probably do the exact same batteries under their own name; betwen the two stores, you have a good chance of finding them in one or the other.

The only problem I have found with rechargeables, is that some toy makers make their toys so they NEED the full 1.5V from a disposable cell, and wont work with the 1.2v on offer. Since normal batteries drop voltage under load, this seems naughty, as the toy will only work while the battery is over 50% capacity.
Screwfix has Varta 2100mAh AA 4-packs available for £3.99 (works out cheaper and you don't have to buy a 12-pack)

DAB radios are the fussiest devices I've found - simply won't work on rechargeables, which is a shame since they need so much power.

It IS a shame, because rechargeables hold their voltage steady, right to the end. I used to own an early digital camera that took AA batteries; use the flash or zoom more than half a dozen times, or take more than 30 photos, and it would shut down, saying the batteries were dead. Stick even 1300mAh rechargeables in there, and it would go on all day, taking hundreds of photos.

You are correct but clearly the radios don't like the 4.8v to start with. Maybe they should take 5 rechrgeables for 6v, but then 7.5v of disposables would kill them? I'm talking Roberts too, not some no-name from Argos (don't get me onto rubbish radios from Argos!).

DAB works brilliantly in my car but I don't want my home radio plugged in and consuming power all the time.
These have not been in stock generally since first advertised 2 weeks ago there was about 6 packs all around the Glasgow area currently there are 2 packs in Hammersmith and 1 in the Glasgow area.
How would you recharge these or the Lidl batteries? Neither come with a charger and I've never used rechargeable batteries before so don't want to mess them up. Are the chargers sold separately? If so, where can I find them? Any help would be greatly appreciated
Thought with comment high capacity expected long life ones as usually buy the 2900Mah ones for AA and 1200Mah for AAA. See they have alkaline 100 pack for £14.99...maplin.co.uk/p/m…3el
I usually strongly prefer low self-discharge batteries (Recyko, Eneloop etc.). Unless you use these batteries regularly and need to charge them often there's a chance they deep discharge over time and are wrecked.

Low self-discharge batteries make even more sense for low power devices such as mice or keyboards.

Any AA charger will do as long as it does NiMH batteries, which every charger on sale these days will.

The only real difference is in how many batteries they'll charge at a time, and how "smart" they are. Some have screens to show charging progress, some will let you fully discharge batteries before charging them, etc.
