Bought these 6 months ago. Many of them stopped charging already.

Have you used the paper clip method? Mine started doing that then on YouTube a recommendation video showed a hack.

You boost the dead battery slightly with one that’s charging and then the dead battery will start charging by itself. I’ll try to find a link.

Nice one @PennyTrader
Are these decent rechargeables. Was going to grab some Ikea ones when next there as they are supposedly Eneloops

Use them on camera flashes.. The AA work very well. Have only recently discarded 2.. Been using them on all the household items

Might get some ikea ones for comparison.

Bought some of these about a year ago and they packed up pretty quickly.

These are good if you have a decent (smart) charger. My old/cheap 12 cell Duracell charger wont charge these if they are properly dead but my XTAR has always managed to charge them to full capacity. Both the AA and AAA take the full rated capacity.

Oh god, do I need a BC-900 now as well

Lol. That just the make of the charger. It will work with any charger you have. 👌🏻

or use a basic charger for 30 seconds. usually when transferred into a smart charger, it will then charge.
Will this hack work on my duff Tesla cell?
I got a discounted pack from the last batch they had for 1.99 last week,,, very good considering cost of alkalines you only need to use them a few times any way
Been using these for about 3 years now in the kids toys. Never had one fail, they’ve been great and the charge lasts ages too.
Have found these to be very good.Last a long time, and hold their charge well when not in use.
Good to see the price back to £2.99.
These are excellent - had some for a few years and still going strong.
I've used these in the past and they've been OK but for the life of me I can't find any of them so need some more. Have been looking at the AmazonBasics as I didn't know when these would be in stock again.

Cheers, I'll get some on Sunday.
Can't recommend them, 3 out of 4 went dead after very few cycles.
Ikea ones going strong for years and didn't have any failures.

Good batteries, bought few years ago and all are fine with frequent use/charging.
Bought several from Lidl 2 yrs ago and still going without any issues

These can die easily, unlike Eneloops which never seem to die.
The Lidl charger tended to fail to detect peak in Lidl batteries, that part being a culprit.

Bought a few of these over the years and not had to bin any yet
What is the difference between smart charger and normal charger?
Pls excuse for asking.
Bought £20's worth last year, underwhelming product..

I'd go for the highly rated IKEA product next time.
I just put a good battery parallel to a bad battery and put a screwdriver over both tops, and a screwdriver over both bottoms of the battery for 30 seconds. That boosts the "bad" battery just enough that the charger will accept it.

Basically all you need is anything metallic to conduct from one battery to the other by connecting both tops of the battery and both bottoms of the battery.

Beware of using IKEA batteries, this happened today with non recharging ones.

How long had they been in there?

Looks like a bad case of leaking?
