I swapped all my AA & AAA to the ‘fancy’ rechargeable ones which lose charges slowly thinking I was future proofing myself and doing my bit for the planet, then it dawned on me, if I have full on power cut for any length of tie I won’t be able to charge / recharge them, so slowly picking up cheap AA & AAAs - Got enough triple As just need bulk’ish of the AAs and these might be it. Cheers fella

I did when I saw that deal after this one. I asked a question as to why the grey you’ve linked too are 99p more than the blue & yellow ones which seem identical but the grey are the newer version of the blues apparently.

Thanks though. I’m now fully stocked with emergency batteries

Do you charge batteries everyday then? Because how often in the UK do we have electricity cuts? At most once a year for a few hours. Either way, good to have a few of both types knocking about I suppose

Lol yeah a right pain south west herts and not in a remote area. Admittedly 3 of those were on the same day (was a right pain as I was home) but last year I recon we had about 7 or 8 through the year.
When you get home and the cooker clock is flashing and the PC is off is a giveaway.
Soooooo annoying..Reminds me of the 80's when u got them all the time

It's very rarely quoted for non-rechargeables, as it varies hugely depending on power draw. If you draw power slowly, the total energy you get out will be much higher than if you run them at full blast for a shorter time.
I went to Home Bargains yesterday and they always have p]Panasonic batteries on offer for 99p. 10 battery packs of AA or AAA.

Not sure how long they last for but they do the job.
Power cuts? Have you not heard about the new Sky drama Cobra? It's solar flare events we need to be worried about; prepping for the next EMP.

Not a great price, in my opinion. Most people would be better off getting Kodak Xtralife AA batteries, which have about 10% lower capacity in real-world usage, but they are 5 for £1 in Poundland. If you need the extra 10% capacity (e.g. don't want to change batteries quite as often) then these are obviously better.

Just had a look and I think those ones are zinc batteries. Generally they will last about 25-30% as long as alkaline batteries.

Hah, it's still pretty cheap though, it works out similar cost to these Vartas in terms of capacity per £££, but you'll just have to change the batteries more often.

That's very good for Panasonic zincs, which are probably about 20% as good as these (see chart below), but you'll just need to swap them with fresh ones more often.

True, if they are genuine Kodak Xtralife (even nearing their expiry dates), they'll be better in comparison to these cost/mA - see comparison chart above.

More like 20% from chart, but possibly still better in terms of cost/mA, as there are TEN of them!

Yeah, I can’t remember last time I had a power cut. But recently a lot of West London lost water and I was out for a day or two I think and then recently lost my broadband for 4 days due to someone cutting through a load of virgin cables, so figured could do with a few of the non rechargeable ones to be on safe side.

The xtralife alkaline ones aren't. Anything heavy duty is zinc and usually you get about 20 batteries for a quid and they last 10minutes before leaking all over your device.

Kodak xtra are alkaline and
