Sorry guys but i dont know if the deal is nationvide, but still worth a post.

Just went in my local ASDA (Leeds Morley) and found these great batteries from SANYO reduced from £9.97 to £4.99!!! They are £6.75 in Amazon.

SANYO Eneloop are the best rechargable batteries i have ever used and as a professional photographer i do know about batteries.

These are the new improved type batteries that can be recharged up to 1500!!! times without any memory effect.

Some technical data:

-Can be used straight after purchase
-Long shelf life with no loss of energy
-Rechargeable up to 1500 times
-Environmental friendly
-Retains 75% of its capacity for 3 years
-Operating temperature as low as -20°C
-2000 mAh (1900 mAh min.)

UPDATE: I have been to few more ASDA stores and some of them are selling the old type Eneloops so dont fall for that. Make sure it says 1500 recharges on the packaging. Saying that i think that even the old ones are good for this price.

Good price for good batteries - think they are a little more on 7 day shop

The ones on the 7dayshop are £6.99 and those are the old type batts. Up to 1000 recharges and up to -10°C operating temp.

nice deal

Superb price for top class LSD rechargeables. I have tried several brands and the Eneloops (for me) are the best of the best, hugely better than any 'ordinary' NiMHs, especially for high drain or occasional use items. Heat added.

Really?

I'll get some for the wife!

Yep, £4.99 in Asda Hull, tho had to check at till as shelf was showing full price.

In my local Asda. They also had AAA packs at a similar price. I did notice them dated "2009" on the back.

Still not bad price for these though.

Just checked packaging and these were dated 2010 06

Great price for good batteries. Voted hot.

Great deal - these are fantastic batteries, I think they are the same as the Apple version, that is to say Apple rebadge and sell these. They are very suited to keyboards mice etc

Wanted to mention that there's good cheap rechargables here:

7dayshop link

But that was before I read this thread more closely. Seems that the Sanyo Eneloops are significantly better than those durcells I just bought :-/

Asda's nowhere near me, but this looks good, so heat added from me!

Great price. I already had these but then purchased some Panasonic equivalent batteries and they do not perform as well so I think I'll be sticking with eneloop.

No Asda near me sadly but voted hot as these are superb batteries.

Can you use any rechargae station to recharge these? I have an Energizer AA/AAA recharger that came with 2100mAH batteries, will these work on it?

yes as long as its not one of those 15min type chargers any will do fine

brilly

Thanks. Mine is a 1 hour quick charger.

rofldinho

Thanks. Mine is a 1 hour quick charger.

tbh id not use that either as they are not the best for battery condition, they are same as 15min ones just a bit better
maybe someone else can confirm they are ok though.

Doh - just paid £6.99 from Amazon last week for these!

Superb batteries - very good price too.

i'll have to check my asda in leeds

Would anyone say these are substantially better than the 7dayshop equivalents? I just ordered a stack of 7dayshop AA and AAAs last week.

Don't think that I would say they are substantially better but I've got several different brands of this type of rechargeable battery and I think the eneloop ones have been the best... seem to hold their charge longer than the others. Use them most in remote controls (Wii) and digital cameras.

Just picked up 2 packs in Asda Washington. Also a dual quick charger for £7.49, I was looking for a quad but the only other type they had were energizer, I wanted to keep it all sanyo.

Also selling 'Quick' Charger and 2 x AA 2000 mAh for £7.49! Plently of AAA x 4 Packs in Newgate Lane store, Fareham

Had last 4 packs AA from Cwmbran plus a charger , loads AAA left tho , mega price

Best AA's money can buy...... period.
Ideally you don't want to be using a charge rate higher than 1000mA (1A) (Approx 2 hour charge time)
A 1 hour charger will be pumping out between 1500mA-2000mA which over time will reduce the life of your cells.
Obviously it's far better to trickle charge them overnight with a charge current <300mA.

The below charger using the USB option overnight will keep these cells running as good as new for many years.

Grab yourself one of these so that you don't need to use a computer.
http://****.co.uk/New…924

Charging them with this setup will mean each cell (If you charge 4 at a time) will receive an approximate charge current of 250mA which is more than a true trickle charge but with a far more realistic charge time of 7-8 hours compared to the impractical 15-16 hour trickle charge time.

ive got a Sony battery charger.

Input says 100-240V 50/60Hz 3W
Output says 1.4V(1.4V) 400mA X2, 160mA X2

would that be ok for these? It does say only use Sony batteries but i pressumed that was just a lie.

Yes that IS a lie, however your charger is probably a dumb timed charger rather than an intelligent Delta V one. For the sake of £8 I would personally buy the intelligent Delta charger especially if you use a lot of rechargeable AA/AAA cells! The charger will pay for itself within a year or 2 as your AA's will last considerably longer unless you spend ages measuring and calculating charge times with a dumb charger (who can be assed to do that?)

But to answer your question Yes it will work however if it's a timed charger (most likely) then your gonna significantly reduce the life of your cells so imo it's a false economy when you can get decent Delta V chargers so cheap now!

Were there any 2700 mAH AA's as well. Need a few for my flash gun.

SANYO is doing some 2500 mAh, but they cost more and ASDA don't have any.
I use these (2000 mAh) Eneloop batteries in my flash guns (i have 4) and they last for ages.

agreed with the above, fantastic batteries at a great price

I use Eneloop in my DLSR and they last ages.

Good price, Hot from me!

Here's a very full review - it might put you off some brands altogether:

e-group.uk.net/for…087

Best batteries I've ever owned. Can't remember the last time I had to charge them for my 360 controller, and I've tried quite a few brands over the years.

Got some AAA's from Asda Ipswich.

Couldn't find them in Edinburgh.

I use a 15 minute charger so I guess this will reduce the life of such batteries even faster.......... but the plus point is its quick enough to charge at the point of needing batteries most of the time. But with the cost of these batteries so low they look like a better bet....
