just went in to my local homebase. It's cheaper to buy the charger with batteries than the batteries alone!

It included 4 x AA Uniross Hybrio Batteries (2100 mah) - these are the ones that retain thier charge.

I think its instore only, my store had 3 left of which I bought 2.

Good deal! Did they have a good price in AAAs?

Might be a stupid question, but will these batteries work ok and give good performance in the xbox 360 wireless controller?? Be nice if they do.

These are meant to give similar performance to disposable ones apart from the fact they can be re-charged. Also you can take them out of the pack and use them straight away - no need to charge first time! On the pack it says you can use them for mulitple items such as cameras, radio controlled toys etc so am sure will be fine for all other uses.

sorry didnt see any. I think these were to clear.

Just bought two packs from my local Homebase store. Heat added and rep on its way.

I dont see how these are supposed to be any better than Ni-MH batteries which often come in 2500mah spec (longer lasting than these)

Great deal, hot hot hot!!

Shame I have two chargers already..

Batteries are great though, I have my Wii controllers kitted out with them and they work a treat.

@ cRuNcHiE,

Ni-MH batteries lose their charge over time, these don't (or they do but at a much slower rate)

'Might be a stupid question, but will these batteries work ok and give good performance in the xbox 360 wireless controller?? '
The answer is yes, they work very well indeed -I have them in my controller as we speak.

The deal is great and I cannot commend these batteries enough. I bought a power-hungry DAB radio for the bathroom and found myself spending a small fortune on duracells. Bought a few packs of the AA's - bought some plastic sleeves which convert AA size to C size and have not looked back. They charge well - my advice is buy twice as many as you need then you will always have a charged set waiting and the most important thing is that they only lose a bit of the charge (can't remember exactly how much) if they are not being used, unlike the typical rechargeable which leak charge until completely empty.

And a couple of other things - you can charge them in ANY rechargeable unit, not just the Uniross ones and they do indeed do AAA ones too.

Finally, you can buy the plastic sleeves to convert AA / AAA's to C / D sizes off ebay for pennies.

these batteries are the best!
If you charge your batteries, then use all the charge within 2 weeks, then these are not for you.
For everyone else these are the best rechargeable batteries, as they will still be fully charged months after you charged them up.

this makes them great for:
computer mouse or keyboard
Clock
Radio
torch or bike lights.
remote control
camera
childrens toys.
etc etc...(basically most uses, and all of mine)

Found loads in my local, they also have Duracell torches on offer, it should be noted all rechargeable batteries were in the clearence including NiMh 2500mAh batteries at £5.89.

cheapest is here but £3.95 delivery charge godfreys-online.co.uk/pag…AB3

How long does it take to charge the batteries supplied?

Also does anyone know if you can charge normal Ni-Mh batteries (ie. non-hybrio) in the charger?

Thanks guys

says 7hrs when charged at 450mA

but NiMH 2100mAh would take 8hrs

Great deal - just got the last 2 packs in Perth - heat and rep added

Yes, definitely, im thinking of getting some, as there are times i dont use my 2nd controller for weeks and the batteries run flat

Just discovered that the charger unit has a safety timer cutout after 9hours [charging should be complete at 8 hours] - so even better value!

We got three lots of them with the charger - and a pack of 4 x AAA Hybrio without a charger for 498p finishing the stock of the AA with chargers at the Pollokshaws branch in Glasgow.

wow just picked up the last one in my store and guess what the batteries on there own cost the same price so better off geting it with charger lol on package said 8hrs charging time for batteries that come with it

Many thanks to the OP - had been looking to these for a while & then offers like screwfix come along - none in NI & the £50 free delivery rises to £100. Got 2 off shelf, plus another 2 from warehouse, in Belfast (Galwally). Both me & me dad now have 2 each & thank bagged HUKD buzz.

Heat & rep added!

PS They had the d converters at 98p for 2 (not sure about C - think no), plus 4xAA at 4.98 & 4xAAA at 6.48 (could have been 5.48). Some other decent deals dotted around (e.g 5 branded/DVD cased DVD+RW for 1.98, but infuriatingly the -RW were right beside them with only one DVD RW price, but they came out at 3.48), but I went looking for the hybrio & had hands full when I found them.

Once you remove the AA batteries from the charger - there is a socket to charge a PP3 hidden behind it too.

dont forget to pick up a homebase "spend and save" card on the way in for an extra 10% discount on all purchases instore. :thumbsup:

The 'D' convertors are great if you have a Maglite. You just need to … The 'D' convertors are great if you have a Maglite. You just need to slip in a 2p piece after the last battery to form a contact with the torch base. Hopefully I'll have a working battery when it's needed!



I did this exact same thing without reading up on it :-D though pre 1992 coins are best for conducting electricity, as they are almost pure copper and worth double smelted down :thumbsup: (illegal). Post 1992 are copper plated steal apparently.

"Copper coins made before 1992 are 97% copper, which means that each 2p coin contains 6.9 grams of the metal and each penny piece contains 3.45 grams. To get a tonne of copper, it would take 145,000 2p coins or 290,000 1p coins, giving a face value of £2,900.

But if the same coins were sold for their metal content they would collect £4,500, after the price of copper hit a fresh high of $8,312 (£4,463) a tonne last night."

Wednesday, 5pm. Just bought one from Homebase, Hedge End, Southampton.

There were none left on the battery display, but I went to Information with the product code and their computer showed that there were still six out the back in 'Overs', whatever that means!

So he got one sent out for me. That means there were probably five left in 'Overs' when I left the store.

There are also loads of rechargeable batteries there at half price, also those insert things for converting AA into C or D batteries reduced to 98p from about £3.

Many thanks OP for a good deal.

I needed 2 of these, but bought 3 from my local store just in case.


So if you cant get hold of one & want it, I can send it to them by post.

I will charge you 20£ including postage. JUST KIDDING!!!!! :giggle:


Please pm me. Thanks
