im so cold...

Sorry but cold from me as pound shops sell the same type of batteries from similar names, no good for high drain applications, but for a tv remote or such like that doesnt use a lot of power "heavy duty" zinc based batteries are fine. However for this sort of money I'd go for some alkalines.

oh alright. thanks for the feedback,

This post seems to have landed in the
landfill site, the home of too many
cheapo batteries.

Is there such a thing as - HEAVY DUTY ZINC BATTERIES?.

If you've spotted Alkalines for this sort of money please post the deal. I wouldn't want Zinc batteries - heavy duty or otherwise - they're too liable to burst and wreck your equipment. However, I would expect to pay a bit more for Alkalines. The best price I've seen is around £12 for 40 from 7DayShop - but that still works out at around £3 for 10.

40 Years or so ago Ever Ready did three grades of zinc batteries. The cheapest were designated U (so U2 for what are now known as size D cells), the next were SP (can't remember what that stood for) and the best were HP (High Power) and supposedly leak proof (but not always so).

So it stands to reason that there can be Heavy Duty zinc batteries - but I still wouldn't use them.

As I said seen same "heavy duty" batteries in the pound shops so I'm suggesting to the OP to look at the poundshops as I got a pack of 10AAA batts for a quid the other week to use in my bluetooth headset when gaming as a stop gap measure till my rechargable one arrives. However Im suggesting that for £1.49 the OP would be better off going for a few less batteries and get some alkalines.
