capacity? aa

I've bought these in the past, and they're excellent.

Whether they've been overtaken in value by 7dayshop's good2go range is up for debate.

Heat added

Have had both types, the Ready2 go from 7 Dayshop are by far and away the best option for almost everyone, the convenience of them keeping their charge makes them just like having disposables - although there will be a rare few who need the extra capacity of the standard NiMH type, however, if that is the case, I would suggest that there are better ones out there than the Lidl ones, as these are the ONLY poor rechargeable batteries I have ever had, and most of those I did have I have chucked out! Other people have had better out of them, (from other discussions) but for me, they were very poor.

Now the charger, on the same page... cracking! It is the easiest charger, with great performance, and zero problems - it has been fantastic!

The only fight is with the seriously hard of thinking who still buy disposables.

cheap charger?

Seriously hot deal, I paid £8 for some 2700's recently and I thought that was a decent price.

I got therse last time.. AA and AAA. Both have been good so far.

I noticed the colour change from black/grey to green!

But are they really 2700 - and how long do they last with this capacity? I'm suspicious of these figures, considering that these batteries have a fixed volume and all use the same chemistry: there are no miracle developments which would cause capacity to jump. "The highest capacity cells on the market (>8000 mA·h) are reported to have the highest self-discharge rates," says Wikipedia, and I can believe this. (I presume the number they give is for D-cells or something.) It's the headline figure like camera megapixels - bigger is not necessarily better.

The only real progression has been the low-leakage separator which distinguishes the hybrid batteries. If you don't use these high-capacity cells pretty soon after charging, they're going to self-discharge until a hybrid cell with a lower headline capacity overtakes them.

Cold from me, i can't be bothered with rechargables. If they were giving them away free i would vote hot, but i still wouldn't want any

Good price but are they any good for digital camera's?? :thinking:

Of course they are - you'd be mad to use disposables in digital cameras. Could you give me 50% of the money you'll save by using these?

Only ones in my 2 local lidls are 1000mah AAA and 1200mah AA

What I meant was are they powerful enough to handle the high drainage of digital camera's. Some are excellent and some are crap...just wondered if these were good enough because the ones I use now only last about 30 minutes :?

It's like it is some sort of badge of honour, to see how much money they can waste on something, giving inconvenience to themselves to do it, and then revel in the process!

Oddest thing of all from the viewpoint of someone who, like most people on here tries to save money and effort: - if you have that attitude, why on earth would you come to this site at all? When you can remain ignorant of good value and bargains and spend more without all that effort reading? Although of course then no-one would know you have very eccentric thoughts & practices, but by posting them on here means we all know!

It intrigues me, I say it every time, that it gets to me, and I am ALMOST at the state of being interested enough to actually care! :whistling:

2300 mah aa...Used in a samsung s700. The batteries are about 12 months old

Voted hot, these are very good rechargeable cells, they last literally for weeks in my XBOX 360 wireless pad (about 2hrs play per day on average). I've used Sony cells of the same capacity that didn't last even remotely as long as these.

Fair enough but people also like using high-rated NiMH rechargeable batteries over deposables in cameras because they can take a lot more photos with them before their charge runs out, even without taking into account the significant cost savings over time.

I bought 3 packets of Tronic AAs that said they were 2500mah and they absolutely aren't. I've got Uniross 2300s which last much longer - they even feel a lot heavier. I'm using a delta v smart charger. I buy stacks of stuff from Lidl/Aldi and these are about the only thing I've found to be slightly dubious. They're great for the Wii but if you're using the 360 with the mike then you'll really notice you're swapping them out much more than you'd want to.

IF you voted cold just because you can't be bothered with them is plain stupid IMHO.:x

If you are merely commenting that its a cold deal IYO and didn't actually vote, then fair do's.:thumbsup:

I have to disagree with that, I use a lot of rechargables but don't find them very good for cameras, your carrying a pocket full and constantly changing them.

You've about the only person around that thinks that. Alkalines are known to perform really badly in digital cameras. When I changed to nihm the difference was staggering in the two cameras I've got, I got over 4 times as many pix from them. Wouldn't knock them if I didn't have to but the Tronic ones were a letdown compared to other ones I had with me.

need some for my sons toys

Please don't feed the trolls. And if they're not trolls they are unable to tell the difference between black and white, so no point in even bothering to explain the obvious yet again.

Duelling Duck;8431909

Indeed. The doubters should read the ]Wikipedia article to find out why. The other day I was with someone using alkalines in a flash gun, and when he had to change them they were almost too hot to handle.

When using rechargables remember that they are 1.2v not 1.5v like batteries and that 2700mAh is a wish and usually (I am hoping this is not the case with lidl) are by far less in capacity. Bought 2500mAh from other shop some time ago and they were 500-600mAh in real life. Tried UniRoss recently and they were fine (2100 mAh).

My local Poundland had some two packs instore. No idea of the capacity as fully stocked up at the moment.

There really should be a FAQ about this - see the Wikipedia article I referenced above to read why that usually makes burger all difference.

That I agree with!

You could then be comparing chalk and cheese - they may even be NiCds. You'd simply be paying to dispose of their toxic waste for them.

True. My mum bought some of their AAA NiMh and they're 350mah which is pants.

Poundland were selling Uniross batteries at one point, not sure if it's still the case now, but it was definitely posted as a deal on here.

If I get a chance I will buy these and try and get a capacity measurement.

It makes a big difference if you're using it for a camera flash for example (as I do). As you said, usually no difference tho.

Wasn't impressed with those - had a set of 2100mAh which lasted nothing like as long as the 1800mAh Olympus-branded ones I got with my camera. But then I may have got them from Fleabay and hence they may have been fakes.
