I am yet to buy any rechargeable batteries that are anywhere near as good …I am yet to buy any rechargeable batteries that are anywhere near as good as regular batteries. Have wasted time with many brands including eneloops.



Must agree to disagree, have found in my usage of 2800Mah rechargeable they are the equivalent and a quick search shows this to be, notice your usage might be different though... greenbatteries.com/bat…-1/

Good grief what a load of childish argument on this thread. My experience isn't good with rechargeables either, and I did have a charger that was supposed to charge each battery individually and measure charge etc but I recall it was only designed for a certain capacity, rechargeables increased capacity and it didn't work with my new ones, so I ended up spending quite a lot of money on batteries and charger that weren't compatible. That's my experience and I'm a bit loathe to repeat it.

I've heard a lot about these eneloops but if the technology comes on quickly and I invest in the charger mentioned above and in a years time it's not compatible with the new batteries then I've invested upwards of £50 to find I'm back to square one again. That's my concern.

That does look a good deal, one I would probably have gone for if I had seen it a few hours before! Impressed, and happy, with what I go though, done a great job to start with, the red Einhell products are meant to be mid-quality and blue ones, poorish. Qualcast products are made by Bosch in most places, except Homebase and Argos, where I believe Bosch have licensed the name and they are made by a company called Sumec, who I have no idea about.

A deal is when things of the same quality are cheaper than anywhere else - not if they are more expensive but suddenly the retailer jiggles the price a bit - up 10p then dropped by 1p for example. Or am I wrong? You cannot get these blades cheaper than anywhere else - hence a deal.

However, that would make your purchase £140 (including the £60 you've just spent). Makes this deal a little dud if you go down this route.I would suggest you use it for this summer and winter first. You'll find you never touch the stat and a "waste of money" to pay purely for aesthetic purposes (as it adds no additional functionality). Also, with the V2 Stat the screen is blank (to conserve battery power) unless you touch the screen, whereas on the V1 stat, the temp is always on the screen (a plus point). Someone on this forum said he's had the V1 for 5 years and changed the battery only once (although V1 was released in October 2013, I would take it as meaning "lasts a long time" )


I had a play with the new stat in maplin, and the temperature readout not being displayed constantly would annoy me, along with the fingerprints on the shiny screen. I'm happy to stick with my v1
