Good find op, heat
Cold from me 1.2V nickel metal hydride AA 1300mAh. Waste of time, half the capacity of any useful AA NiMH battery.
problem with these batteries:-
no details about low self discharge and low capacity

Yeah, but they're half the price of a 2500mAh battery. Seems commensurate with what you're paying, really.

Agreed, may as well throw the money in the bin

If you wanna go further down, you can get 800mAh AA's from Poundland, 2 for £1, same with 350mAh AAAs.

Poor for most applications but some people might have a use where they're suitable.
Thanks op
got these last time they were on offer. the power drains so quick, bit of a waste of money
The lower the mAh then the more charge cycles you get. Also they are lighter and nearer the same size as standard aa batteries. Some higher mAh batteries are a little fat for some devices. These would be good for kids game machines or toys. Cordless telephone. Wii remotes. Radio. Bike light. Torch.. Heat from me...

Seeing that it is commensurate with what you are paying, it does not really make it a deal, hence I voted cold. It is false economy akin to buying cheap zinc batteries over buying alkaline.
These are great for my xbox controllers. Last long enough and easy to have set ready charged while using another.
"12 hour timer control"
1/ That's a long time charging
2/ No intelligent control, so won't fully charge the batteries (or if it does then it'll overcharge ones which aren't drained).

I'd pay a bit more for something better, unless you're desperately skint.
I've been using the 800mAh Poundland batteries in various applications for years without issue. Handy for LED Torches, Wireless Mice and we even use them in motorised salt/pepper grinders and they last months with daily use. As for these USB chargers they can be handy to have if you have deeply discharged cells, sometimes our smart/intelligent charger flags them up as faulty/shorted and refuses to charge them but 20mins in one of these puts enough juice in them to register on the proper charger.
these are great for a wireless pc mouse.(unless you need AAA, then they won't fit ;-) ) you'll find the lower the mAh the better they will perform. particularly if like me you always charge your mouse when not in use.

That is the only reason I would buy one of these. Do you know of anywhere where you can get the charger on its own cheaper? I have some batteries my smart charger flags as faulty and read that these chargers usually do the trick just nicely.
Cold from me. That USB charger will likely be poor and only charges 2 batteries.

Really?

Also they are lighter and nearer the same size as standard aa batteries.


If they are lighter it is because they contain less active material, so they would behave exactly the same as the higher capacity cells in terms of charge cycles.

Got mine from various pound shops but I would imagine a normal cheap mains powered charger would work the same, the type with only a singe led status light.
