Even allowing for delivery cost this is a good price. The £1.99 charge is valid for up to £6 so you could order 2 packs for the same charge, 1 of each type perhaps?

because the eu is useless, they could have banned non recharagables along with diesel vehicles years ago

Why inflict your opinions on everyone else? If you don't like it, just don't vote. Price/value for money should be the drivers for deciding whether to vote hot or cold, otherwise you are just helping to keep a cost saving away from those who prefer to use disposable type batteries.

rchargables are much better value for money , they can be reused hundreds of times and cost only a bit more than use once alkalines
I'm not saying these are good or bad, but really wish manufacturers were made by law to put the capacity on normal batteries (ie how much power they hold/how long they last).

Who else could get away with selling something without telling you how much it holds.

I'd like to be able to decide if it's more cost effective to buy a cheap set of batteries or more expensive ones that work out cheaper in the long run.

I've seen some reviews in the past and Panasonic batteries came out well, but that was at least a couple of years ago. 😁

For me at Xmas the led lights needed 1.5v batteries. Disposable appear to be 1.5v while rechargeable are less so the lights are not very bright.

Im a fan of rechargeables but I also recognise that disposables have a place, they don't self discharge anything like a rechargeable, they have a higher voltage, and also can be used with impunity, and not worry about memory effects and ensuring you fully discharge and fully charge if it's nickel based battery chemistry.
Also some devices don't work well and shut down with rechargeables like nicd/NiMH especially because they think the battery's out of power.
So I love rechargeables and have tons including those nice new low self discharge ones but still need alkalines every now and then.

Alkalines ( AA or AAA ) are 99p for a pack of 6 in Home Bargains , so cheaper than this deal and you don't have to buy in bulk.

Remember with this deal that you cannot get them for £2.49 - you have to pay postage on top no matter how many you buy

Yes same here.

Things like clocks and certain kids toys have normal batteries.

Certain things won't even work with rechargeable them being 1.2 volts.
