yes they did have chargers,but I couldn't tell you the price

Some historical suggestion that the capacity may be significantly less than claimed forums.moneysavingexpert.com/sho…998 however that may result in increased useful charge/discharge cycle life.

Always found these to be short life so I now avoid

NOT cheap

These aren't the Low self-discharge batteries they used to sell, which these days is the bare minimum. Sorry, but cold.

Thanks OP These are NOT the Eco ones that Lidl usually sells and are no where near as good.
Lidls Intelligent chargers are well worth the £17-18.

That's what I found with these when I bought some a year or two back, lasted a few months before not holding their charge. I have Eneloops that must be 5 plus years old still going strong, Id rather put my money in a higher quality set.

I think they are 2500mah combined capacity of 4 batterys

I'd wait until Lidl get their eco pre-charged (low self discharge) batteries on offer again, usually very early November, December and March.

Same price, but in green packaging.

Yes, I have loads of these and find them good.

The 2500mah is the quoted capacity for each battery. Depending on the circuit if they are connected in series they can supply a current of 2500ma for one hour ( or 1000ma for 2 1/2 hours or 500ma for 5 hours etc) and a nominal voltage of 4.8v. Individually they can supply are current of 2500mah and a nominal voltage of 1.2v. Connected in parralel they can supply a current of 1000ma for 10 hours at a nominal voltage of 1.2v.

Depends on usage,if in a high drain daily usage like a personel radio then low drain long life batteries are more expensive and are some times lower mAh.

The chemistry of the batteries does not depend on how they are used. The chemistry is the chemistry. They are either LSD or not. I don't understand what your point is.

Ta for the warnings. Was going to get some. Not now.

I think what's trying to be said is that the crappy types (these) can have a slightly higher capacity because the leaky separators are thinner than those inside LSD cells, so there is more space for active ingredients. As a result, sheep will buy them because a bigger number must be better, yes? In practice, there will be very few occasions when they will be preferable in practice to LSD types so, nowadays, are almost as pointless as non-rechargeables...

I Purchased them because of the small number of £2.99 couldn't really care about the ins and outs of a battery,not at this price anyway.

As long as they make my kids toys work and the remote control change channels,then they will do me.

Well to you for buying these instead of disposables - I was a little harsh in my comparison! But you might find them frustrating to use in remote controls if they are the types where the batteries normally last many months or more, because that's when you'll start to feel the effects of the high self-discharge particularly acutely.

They're not crap just because they aren't low self discharge....

All NIMH batteries were like this until the Eneloop type came on the scene.

They are decent enough batteries, they only take about 2100-2200mah instead of the advertised 2500 but they work fine, plenty of punch for RC cars etc

The 2300mah Tronic eco are better when they have them but these are decent for the money too.

Just a heads up if someone missed out on these a company called Budget Batteries currently have rechargeable AAA / AA Duracell batteries on offer for £2 for today only, some Tuesday promotion. There is a postage charge but might help somebody if they need some rechargeable's. Ordered a few of each myself but plenty left :). Can't post a deal since they aren't a HUKD merchant so purchase at your own risk guys. The way I see it it's no worse than an eBayer i've never used before.

They are rubbish - 1300mAh and 300 recharge cycles.

Agreeably they are low capacity, I plan on using mine in remote's so that will do me, still not bad for £2. The AAA's are far better value in my opinion, 800mAh capacity is fairly high, still for £2, and branded!
