Ideal for all everyday use, these alkaline batteries are ideal for high power applications which require intense and durable energy - such as portable hi-fi, toys & audio devices.

Whilst at Marks and Spencers Camberley noticed these had been marked down to £2.00
not showing online but were originally marked up at £12.50......where in the hell do they get their prices from ?

Looks that way.......not showing any prices online ......Camberley Marks is a big to massive store
they had piles of them in the Home Entertainment section absolutely masses of them. Ironically
I didnot buy any as I had been lucky enough to get sorted with the Staples deal last week.
As there are so many good deals around re batteries is there something happening ......how come they have suddenly become so much cheaper ?

Aaaah I paid £5. Stock up if you can as end by date on mine is 2014.

Bought 3 packs at £3 last week. Good deal if u can find it.

darn these instore deals (thanks op tho for posting) would be super hot if online.

wish hukd could put a "instore only" pic on the main page for instore deals?

wots wrong wiv rechargables - cheaper to use as well.
S'pose keebs binmen in work.

Rechargeables are only 1.2v so no good for motors or led torches. Theirs also no good for slow drain such as smoke alarms, clocks remotes.

These SONY batteries are rubbish. I bought from sainsbury's and they last a fraction of the time of own brand alkaline.

Sorry, that's a myth. They work fine in virtually everything because their flatter discharge curve and lower internal resistance means that the 1.2V is maintained, unlike the terminal voltage of disposable cells.

Theirs also no good for slow drain such as smoke alarms, clocks remotes.

The new low self-discharge/Hybrid/Eneloop/Hybrio etc types are fine in those applications - you seem to be a bit behind the times here. However, I think disposables still have the edge in some cases (where batteries are expected to last a year or more, say) because it would take a long long time for the extra cost of the rechargeables to be covered.

Apart from the applications above (and who would need to buy dozens of batteries at a time for those, considering that disposables have a limited life as well?), there is no need to buy disposables any more - you really are throwing huge amounts of money down the drain, regardless of anything else.
