These are the batteries to buy.
Voted hot.

Ordered thanks

I had various rechargeables with high mAh rating but often these lost charge quickly when not in use (extremely frustrating when trying to use a camera and the battery is drained, and then the spares that had been fully charged but left in the camera case were also drained!) However, I switched to these and they are absolutely fantastic - keep the charge ages. Hot deal

Excellent price, thanks :-)

Ordered, just wondering can i use any Uniross charger?
Thanks

Good price, just ordered many thanks

Is this marketplace seller allowed on here?

Hot!! Great price. You should be able to use any charger as I'm using a non Uniross one and charges ok. Great batteries, I've bought 8 packs of AAA from Play.com before I spotted this offer. Nice one OP

Ordered. Good spot, Thank You!

Only 800 mAh though.

Yes, but it should really say Amazon marketplace in the title to be clear.

ordered one pack

Quite normal for AAA batteries, unlike the chinese rubbish that claim 1000mAh or more but don't last 5 minutes.

Ordered, will come in handy to go in my wiimote's energizer induction charging kit, i hardly use the wii and eveytime i pick up a wiimote they are dead! so fingers crossed this will fix it for me!

Oops, these are AAA. However, the same Amazon seller is also doing the 2450mAh Duracells for £4.50: amazon.co.uk/gp/…uct

These must be rubbish too as they're made in China

Yes they do but some chargers provide AAA batteries due to you replacing the battery compartment so it fits the charger for the wii

I use these batteries myself I rather have hybrio than slightly more powerful ones posted here yesterday

Be careful which supplier you choose to buy them from. Link takes you to media-r-us Amazon seller but the seller mentioned by the OP is QD Ltd and they are listed on the left hand of the screen under other buying options. Bought these batteries about 4 weeks ago from QD came as 2 packs of 2....

Well worth a punt at £3.35 delivered!

Are hybrio the best batteries available economically speaking?

Thanks for highlighting this. Not sure why as the page said QD when I copied it across. As this is Amazon marketplace, do take care to check the quality of the supplier (both QD and Media-R-us have pretty good feedback). And also make sure you don't accidentally go for a supplier with huge postage costs!

Are these good to be used on the monster beats studio headphones?

Those are not the low self-discharge hybrid types. They are not comparable. Just in case there's any confusion.

If *insert random device here* takes AAA cells, it will work.

Hybrio is one of the brand names of the *hybrid* type of cell. All are comparable, and all are the best all-round rechargeable battery. No-one can tell you whether in your application they will be cheaper than the non-hybrid type, but if they aren't, the difference will be minimal, and the thing to bear in mind is that any rechargeable will knock spots off any non-rechargeable.

They've gone up to £3.40. oO X)

Edit: I see that's from Go Green. Save yourself 5p from Media R Us...

Not sure why the link didn't work either - I tried correcting it and it didn't work. I suspect its an amazon thing. But I was very happy with the batteries from QD and can vouch for them.

I'd go for these ones for 60p more. 1000mAh rathan than 800mAh

Looks like £3.40 is now the cheapest you can get them (from Go Green). Once they run out of stock, the next cheapest will be £3.45!!

These ones aren't low self discharge. They won't be as good at holding their charge, so are better suited to things that get through the batteries quickly (low self discharge are better if you're gonna use them over a longer period of time, like remote controls etc.).

Or even if you leave them on the shelf for a week or two before using them, they will have self-discharged to the extent that they will contain less energy then the hybrids! I'd pay 60p less for these any day.

Anyone can tell lies about battery capacity - there is no standard way to measure it. Don't get hung up on the "magic numbers".

Excellent offer, was just looking for some of these. Currently the 7dayshop equivalent are sold out so the next cheapest are these!

It does depend on the device to some extent. A few rare items will only work well with non-rechargeable batteries, such as my ATC3K video camera. This lasts for over 2 hours using my giant stash of Woolworths AA alkalines, but if I use any brand of rechargeable battery, it will automatically turn itself off after 10-15 minutes (presumably because the voltage is lower and it thinks it's about to run out - rechargeable batteries are only 1.2V, whereas zinc or alkaline batteries are 1.5V).

That's a real shame, but you're right that it can happen with badly-designed equipment, and I'm sorry to hear of a concrete example of a presumably modern product. A semi-professional audio recorder I use (Edirol R-44) has a menu setting to allow you to tell it what type of batteries you have installed in order to calibrate the battery life indicator. Not much can be done about indicator accuracy without such manual intervention, but switching off at a voltage which is to be expected well before rechargeables run out indicates bad product design to me, especially when you consider that the voltage drop is much more gradual than for disposables. Products that say you must only use disposables in them should be banned along with disposable batteries...

You've piqued my interest and I've looked at that camera's manual. It recommends alkalines but doesn't say you can't use rechargeable batteries - possibly because it doesn't dare to. In addition, it includes the usual boilerplate warning about mixing battery types - including rechargeables.

i use tronic charger ,it charges the other aaa which are uniross and same 800 mah in about just under 2 hours ,,which is good

i ordered one from grand gadgets for 3.45 is it the same one
amazon.co.uk/Uni…mtd
dont wont to buy any other battery which is not any good to me
thanks

I think it's the only thing I have which doesn't like rechargeables. To be fair, I suppose it does work with them - just not for very long

Bizarrely, the Kodak Zx1 camera I have seems to behave the opposite way round - lasts for over 2 hours with the supplied rechargeable batteries, but only about 20 minutes with the Woolworths alkalines!
