Nope, just standard NiMH.

On the surface this seems like a good deal, but I unsure whether Pifco batteries will really produce the 2500mAH that their advetising promises. Other batteries I have tried from 7DayShop (including own brand and Fameart) actually provide much less power than suggested. 7DayShop own brand 2700mAH AA's only held ~1500mAH's and the Fameart's slightly more when tested in my MAHA 9000 battery tester. Both of these also lost their charge very very quickly when left to stand for a week.

I am not saying these are crap (I have not tested them), although they may well be. The 2x C and 2xD convertors bump up the attraction as they can be genuinely useful.

Hmmm, I've used those adapters in the past but AA batteries just haven't got the power of C or D.

I have those 7-day batteries and (altough I don't have a tester) I can confirm they don't give the mA it says on the tin.

Good Find. Ordered , Heat added

thanks ordered a couple in prep for crimbo and kids toy battery overload - mainly for the adapters tbh even if the batteries aren't up to much

I've just got a set of the 7DS ready to use type, 8 batteries for about 7.58. Agree the converters are a nice idea, for D cells Dealextreme do converters that can accomodate 2 AA's in each cell, useful! This seems an OK deal, but I do think the ready to use are the future.

novice question I bought the Sony 2 AA (2100) batteries and charger from Sainsburys when on the deal, can I use the charger to charge these ?

Many real C & D batteries, especially rechargeables actually contain high power AA cells. I like to use Low Self Discharge batteries and currently there are very few true C & D LSD's available. For example, I use 6x AA Eneloops with C coverters inside my DAB radio and they last for two to three weeks with daily use. Standard Duracell C NiMH rechargeables with a higher mAH rating did not last any longer for me because they self discharged much of their capacity after a week or two. I still have the Duracells in the drawer but I doubt I will use them again unless I run out of C convertors or AA LSD's.

Yes, any standard NiMH charger will work with these.

Great deal !!!!

I've also ordered the 7DS ready to use AA, not got them yet. Are they any good?

I was researching slow discharge C cell rechargables this morning and was surprised at how few companies make them. Ansmann seemed about the only worthwhile option - 4500mAh, getting on for twice the charge of an AA cell in an adapter. But very expensive and seeing as the C cells in my shower radio lasted more than 8 years, I might well just buy some throwaways - just need to remember to actually buy the things when I'm out.

Not buying any standard rechargeables now, even more so with this excellent deal today:
hotukdeals.com/ite…go-

For all but the rarest circumstances, even though nominally lower power, the low self discharge ones will make you pleased you bought them! :-)

The small saving in price too means you can still get the "free" adaptors from dealextreme or whoever and have the best of both worlds!

Still on offer, ordered 4 sets for baby's toys/swing etc
