These are apparently low discharge and even work reasonably well in high current applications, we use eight of them in salt and pepper grinders and they seem to last 6-8 months per charge with daily use.

Also good for wireless Mice due to their low weight etc.

really good if you have a battery charger lying around, must get a charger now!
There not that great good for kids toys
For a £1 they are excellent value and they fairly good the charge once recharged, chargers on ebay for £1.29
a third of the charge for two/thirds of the price of lidl ones
to me only really worth for devices that constantly charge on a base unit and dont need recharged manually and not really even then

Very low mAh. Not very suitable for high draw items like RC cars or cameras.

Ones from lidl listed earlier are nearly 3 times more mAh.
The low 800mAh rating may limit use to applications where the user can tolerate frequent recharging. Maybe the low capacity implies the number of charge/discharge cycles before end-of-life will be greater than other rechargeables, but that will be negated by the frequency of required recharges...
You could have posted that a few years ago
For anyone hating on the post , younwont find these anywhere any cheaper if you can then fair play, not many people are aware you can get them this cheap , they are excellent for remote controls and other low power items

Therefore people save in the long run having to buy batteries every time

Reuse recycle and save the whales and the planet and all that
£2 for 4 of these.
£3 for 4 at lidl.
These are 800mah.
The lidl ones are 3× the capacity.
You pay your money etc....
Been this price for years
I bought these yesterday. Perfect for cordless landline phones.

Yep, was buying these years ago at poundland
Won't last 5 mins in anything power hungry
They are great for xbox controllers been using these for over a year

They actually take about 10% more charge than they claim and have been great in remotes and mice for me. Several months for mice and longer for remotes. I rate them.
Not the highest capacity but they work well and have been around in Poundshop at this price for some years, AA and AAA rechargeable.
I knew Big Clive had discussed these somewhere, he seems to like them...
At 6:00 he calls the Fusiomax (Poundland) batteries "Eneloop-like (low self-discharge)".

One Youtube comment does say, "I've tried these Fusiomax cells in a Xtar VC4, the capacity from flat to full has always registered +/- 10% of the package rating which is good. However the shelf life between charges seems to vary greatly between packets, some self discharge in less than 24hr and some stay charged for weeks. However the best cheapo cells I've found so far are the 2300mAh Lidl Tronic cells, that the VC4 estimates capacity at ~2550mAh and hold charge for weeks without an issue and usually found at £2.99 for 4 so only 50% more than Poundland for more than 50% greater capacity."
..so, maybe quality control issues with the Fusionmax (I tend to use them in cordless phones, etc).

I’ve got some of these and they’re alright but as has been highlighted already, these need recharging more often. Personally I’d only get these if you don’t have any rechargeables already as the Lidl ones are much better value.

Agree with the sentiment, but disagree that these are a good way to promote it. They probably have a very similar environmental footprint at the point of sale to other higher performance batteries. Having used these, I can say you'd be lucky if 10 packs of these lasted the lifespan of an Enloop or even the Lidl equivalent, so being conservative here, they're at least 10 times worse for the environment.

I found that they do self discharge pretty badly compared to Enloop, they don't last many recharge cycles without losing voltage, they don't last long in most applications anyway with such low capacity, so they require a lot more recharging, it's a tripple / quadruple whammy of crapyness.

If you're going to invest in rechargeables, why not do it properly? If these are your first experience, it's likely to put you off entirely. Alternatives are far better value and offer a huge improvement in performance.

These are nearly as rubbish as the Ultramax brand they were previously selling. A small improvement, but for me, a product that should not exist, never mind being a good "deal".

So, they're bad for the environment, bad for regular rechargeable users, and a bad starting point for people wanting to try rechargeables.

What are they good for?

Nothing negative towards you by the way. I just think products like this shouldn't be made

Remote controls great for them lasted over a year in my tv remote , nearly everything is bad for the environment, humans alone are a disgrace to the environment, rechargeable are better for the environment they can be reused and recycled therefore no need for more batteries

Humans are, because they make things like this

Ok for remotes I suppose, but didn't last anywhere near a year in my Sky remote, and other rechargeables last many times longer.

Rechargeables are better in general, but these are a very bad example. Considering the number of charges, the lifespan, and the performance of these, I think it'll be close if you compare it to a high quality alkaline.

do you play your xbox for like 10 mins a week?, after a day these are pretty much dead

You get 5hrs play on an Xbox controller only using 400ma so I would say around 8-10 hrs , comprende

i dont doubt theyve lasted that long, ive had mine quite a while now too. Its just for me they dont last as long as id like. Granted they're a quid so swapping em out every now and then isnt so bad. beats using those cheap batteries that last like 5 minutes
