Rechargeable AA batteries pack of four - £2.99 instore @ LIDL

Posted 2nd NovAvailable: London
Just found these in the local Lidl, seems like a good deal, a pack of four AA batteries 2400mah for £2.99.

Brand TRONIC, I never heard of it, but after a quick search I found this genuine review that gives a good thumbs up to them:



I usually buy the IKEA branded ones, which are 2450,but these are almost the same in terms of mah and are cheaper. There were still plenty in the store in Surrey Quays, hopefully are nationwide.

Nice find, look great for the price
Been using these for a few years now and they work fine, not as good as the Ikea or Amazon ones but for the price they’re ideal
Yep got 2 sets of AA and AAA yesterday
why oh why did they make the eneloops white my lot have gone walkies.
great deal +heat. Get a quality charger for them like a 26650 model from Amazon or whatever, mains or USB powered is fine, you'll thank us later.

These are good
Any chargers to charge them with by chance?
I have been using these for a few years now perfectly good in torches clock remotes etc
Anyone know what country they are produced in?
HUkDealers know all about LIDL TRONIC and IKEA LADDA
Good batteries. Have been using them for a year. Also got the Tronic smart chager which is great. I'm off to get more.

I use Duracell fast charger, you can find it for about £15 on sale if you're lucky. Some suggest fast chargers kill batteries. I've got about 80 rechargeable batteries and out of all, only 1-2 are not good as before, this is over a period of 4-5 years. I also like it, as it charges in about 30 min, compare with the normal chargers, so when I get new toys for my kids, these will be up and running in minutes.
Voted hot, these are decent bateries, have a few and never had any problems with them.

Excessive heat is what kills rechargables which is why fast charging reduces the life, as to how much I'm not sure. Perhaps pre charging with a slow charger and topping them up before use?

Yes, I agree, but in my case I found it does not affect as much, at the end of the day if the batteries last years, I prefer the convenience of fast charging. The rechargeable batteries are much cheaper now.
Thanks
Yeah, would also recommend....have got a few batches of these and they are good. Great for the price.
Very good value, have been using in my remote controls for streaming sticks for last year. I noticed the last time they had them they possibly weren't stay charged ones these are.
I bought several sets of these batteries last time based on all of the positive comments.

They're not great performers in my experience whatsoever.

Don't hold the charge very well at all.

Must have bought 7 packs of AA & AAA

Will try IKEA next time.

As a comparison, I've got some of the Poundland rechargeable AA batteries and they hold the charge longer....

Perhaps there was a clue in the "ready to use" label?

They were all flat...
these are pretty fat for AA - how do they compare to the ikea ones?

Quite difficult to get out off my son's Xbox controllers for sure!
I had few packs of those and they ware dying and not charging after few cycles. So will not buy more.
Altrough had simular problems with durracell as well.
Ikea sell a simple charger for £6. If you wait until your Birthday month Ikea will give you a £5 voucher making it £1
950mAh AAA also available
Bought a pack of AA today but these were flat so charging now.

I'm charging them using a really old charger that says Nickel Cadmium battery charger, will this still work on the NiMH batteries?
As this charger does all kinds of shape batteries it says on the back 2.4v/9v --- 140mA, would this charger be completely unsuitable?

I think in the best scenario they will charge in a reeeeeeallly long time, as these are stated to charge at 480mah in 7 hours, but I'm no expert on these kind of things. I would go for a new charger to keep things safe

After looking on the net I have turned it off, I don't think it will be a good idea. I'm looking at a new one. Maybe the nitecore.

Did it say ready to use on the packet these specifically say so, where as last time I couldn't find it mentioned on the packet so didn't buy them. I've got some Poundland triple A but 300mah

Yes indeed, same as the image used for this deal.

I've used the Poundland batteries for years in things like led bike lights and small led torches and seem to last forever.

I've even got some of the ancient white and orange Poundland rechargeable that must be around 10 years old that still work ok.
Is the ikea charger a good charger?

It does say it on the packet, I've posted the picture of the one I've bought. I have put them straight to charge anyway but the charging led was showing 2/3 full
Have found these to be good batteries.Definitely worth £2.99.
Good to see them back to this price again after the recent price hike to £3.49.
Will be getting some more AA & AAA.
