Does anyone else smells a ghost shoo when they walk into malin now days😬
Back again. One of the hottest deals today. Well done.
It's also worth looking at the other Maplin thread of earlier today.
delivery is free for £10 or more well it is here Doncaster
Delivery is free for over £20.
Sorry, but... what? :)
I reckon prior to their imminent 'woes', Royal Mail was probably their (more costlier) vehicle of choice and all that?. But in light of 'current events', then ... As Ce-Lo once sang in this smash hit song 'Forget You', where he said: "Just because I don't drive a Ferrari, doesn't mean I can't get you there?". Every little helps and all that?. :-)
WOW!. You originally bought a massive stash before the last 'Empire' went to pot (Woolworths). And now you're buying another stash and this current 'Empire' too (Maplins) is going to pot ... Maybe that's a 'sign' for you there somewhere, perhaps?, hehehehehe. ;-)
Arrived today (20 April) by Hermes - not Royal mail as stated by Maplin. Best before on AA batteries - 2023 and for 9V batteries - 2022.
Phew... Overnight received an update by email: Your item(s) have been dispatched Expected delivery date: Between Sat 21st Apr and Mon 23rd Apr I ordered: Maplin Extra Long Life AA Alkaline Battery 100-Pack Code: N53EL Quantity: 1 £9.00 Maplin Extra Long Life Alkaline 9V Batteries 6-Pack Code: N66EL Quantity: 1 £2.40
Stock seems to be changing all the time online. 100 AA and 100 AAA were not available this morning but can now buy both for £15.75 delivered. Take the plunge or wait for the mixed packs to be available again?!
Shows as in stock for me but doesn't let me add to basket, so will have to check my local store.
Still some stock online 40aa with 20aaa also 100 aaa
Great way to ruin the planet even more, for less!
Delighted to see it's been pointed out it was they're (twice) and their (once) also the "Grammer" shenanigans. Not only do I not have to post corrections but I'll be able to sleep better tonight. Oh and heat added 🌞
Ok, got it toysrus have reduced batteries!
Yes I am with Boy George on that one - much prefer a cuppa Earl Grey all that sex stuff nasty , messy , smelly nonsense! >;o)
So basically what you're saying is you are rubbish in bed and she needs a vibe to get herself off. (lol) (lol)
£1 you are kidding really? No wonder - 350mah capacity is awful. That wouldnt even power my girlfriends vibo for a single orgasm! >;o)
3.5p if that isn't negligible I don't know what is
Rubbish, it would cost something.
Thanks for posting as I need both sizes. Will bob along to my local store this weekend.
Thanks for the reminder, visited IKEA recently and was about to buy them but just forgot. Will keep in mind on the next trip to store. Thank you!
Lidl one's are £3? Seam great?.not eneloop but been using for years in my Lenser torch's. £12 is alot of money, surly??
There were rumblings that Amazon Basics batteries are rebadged eneloops but nobody seems to know..and also that Fujitsu (who took over the old Panasonic manufacturing plant) are also of a similar ilk. Can't confirm those two options for sure, though.
If you don't want to pay the Eneloop price, get yourself down to your nearest Ikea and pick up their rechargeables, which are a rebranded Eneloop Pro and only £5.99 for 4x AA and £4.00 for 4x AAAs. Here's a video on YouTube explaining it: IKEA LINKS Ikea AAs Ikea AAAs
Not sure if this deal is still going on but you can get 48 GP AAA or AA for a tenner at a company called Budget Batteries with free delivery
can also be collected at Rymans which helps if there isn't a Robert Dyas near
Though I would add, AA's are the same price too btw: https://www.robertdyas.co.uk/energizer-aa-alkaline-power-batteries-24-pack
In before "really should be using rechargeable batteries" comments. Thanks op
Nice deals but hardly freebies. Isn't it posted in the wrong thread?
they just dropped down to 5 quid. if you can find stock in your local branch then it is 10p per battery ! delivery isn't available any more sadly
Not sure how these stack up, but you can get 48 AAA or AA batteries at Budget Batteries for a tenner with free P&P if it helps anyone
Thanks I got the last one in the wigan store edit: turned out there was more on the shelves that it showed online. I also ended up picking up 3 large project boxes and 2x 12v dc fans for about 26 quid
Thanks have ordered. Collection in store should also give 10% discount for students too. Will see tomorrow.
Cracking, nearly as good as £4.99 they were about a month or so back. HUKD
Same price in Rymans at the moment for those who missed this :)
Great deal let down by £3.95 shipping cost. Sorry,cold. (annoyed)
Actually £1.99 Panasonics from Argos are NOT alkaline. So not even comparable and definitely not better value.
Maplins are doing 30AA and 20AAA(50 pieces) for £6.99. Not sure for how long as the stores are closing down.
Not listed on website
I posted this deal on 14 Feb, and I'm surprised there is any left in stores as the heat from the as immense, with people commenting saying that they had found them, however, I know for sure there is none left near me.
Got these during the summer. Can't believe there's still some left out there.
Like the cheap zinc batteries, are these mainly air? Squeeze one hard and see if it dents.
Alkaline best before August 2022 :)
Picked up two packs of 12 in one store . I had reserved 4 more packs in another store . They only had one 12 pack in that store so they gave me a 24 pack and 5 packs of 4 batteries 56 batteries in total . Two of the batteries had gone bad in the 24 pack so threw those away but I got 4 extra over what I had originally ordered for free (lol)
This stock has run out.
Neither do Alkaline in certain use scenarios. Eneloop lasts up to 10 times* * In higher power situations only.(similar to the comparison between xinc and alkaline, that being high power situations)
Their batteries are awful! Don’t last long at all!
But where they Zinc Chloride or Alkaline?, that's the question
Yes, did that with Duracell and they sent me a coupon for their store to order new once.
7 year warranty, so if they dont keep my item working for 7 years i can complain?
very good find, heat added.
The Kompernass 2400mah ones were duff, the 2300 Eures ones that came before were good and the 2400 Eures ones that they sell now are good too. It was the 2400 Kompernass ones that were pants. As long as they are Eures ones you should be good!
9v ones don't fit in my charger (annoyed)
That was nearly two years ago. The AA cells I bought yesterday (2400s) all weigh over 28g so I'm guessing they're not the poor quality ones referred to in your links.
The Lidl eco batteries used to be rated at 2,300mah , they increased the capacity to 2,400mah without changing the design/packaging. I have some of their Eures branded, 2300mah ones (actual capacity typically measured around 2350mah). There was an issue with some 2400 mah, which were branded Kompernass rather than Eures, and much lighter weight but otherwise identical to these. see:- https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/tronic-nimh-aaaaas-batteries-lidl-299-2455892
Providing a battery is not discharged below 0.8- 1v per cell it should never refuse to charge. All my chargers are intelligent as my batteries have to be perfect when placing them in high end RC models. The batteries are then analyzed on a regular basis using specialized equipment. I discard them after 2-3 years or when their capacity falls by 25-30% Cheap chargers tend only to trickle charge a battery. This presents a problem with large capacity cells as peak detection is necessary to charge them correctly. . Bare in mind also that the largest capacity battery for a given size is not necessary the best regarding reliability. Certainly Lidl's Tronic range were not great a few years back but hopefully better now.I'm sure these batteries are fine but only for applications where potential failure doesn't present a problem.
GP Ultras on Amazon at £10.49 for 40 is a far better buy IMO.
power to the people warm
This also works out at 50p per battery. Here are the details: 20 Duracell Plus Power AA Batteries (15 + 5 free) - £9.99 @ Argos 20 Duracell Plus Power AAA Batteries (15 + 5 free) - £9.99 @ Argos
They have 20 Duracell powers plus for 9.99 at Argos?
Yep the reason I have more Fujitsu as there on offer more lolthe black aa ones though do say 500 times on the packaging
The Evolution Of Eneloop & Fujitsu Rechargeable Battery.
Heat, class battery’s Fujitsu are also on offer which are also very goo
Great point about the amount of years, I do however wonder if these claims of 500 or 1000+ charges are true or not since it feels almost like a printer toner which claim 5000 print outs when you get 500 instead. For peace of mind I don't think you can beat the Eneloops and would rather pay the few quid more for these especially at 55% off saving.
Is it ok to use a fast charger with these?
Thanks for that! I had also noticed this issue in the forums, but I was so sure it must be battery related. I just called Hive and they said it is a known issue and are sending me out a replacement unit now. Changing the batteries every two weeks is a bit over the top really! I wont even need to buy any Energizer batteries now if this works! :-)
There is a known problem with Hive that could account for that. First set (Duracell) last ages, then it burns through them - Duracell or not. Plenty of complaints on Hive forums, many £££'s wasted on "top spec" Duracell. I can see you would blame the battery, as it doesn't make sense the device would suddenly start hogging them, but it seems to be some sort of firmware issue. A few people have got replacement thermostats. Still on the first set in mine, will have to wait and see. Btw Energizer Industrial should be the same as their 'retail' batteries, they're both alkaline. Heavy Duty usually refers to Zinc Chloride, which are an upgrade from Zinc Carbon. Both rubbish compared to modern chemistries.
I have been using the Ikea batteries for a while now, but they only last a few weeks in my Hive thermostat compared to the Duracell's that seem to last well over a year. I don't understand how the tests can show Ikea batteries as being any good when my own experience seems to be quite different. I am going to try Energizer "Industrial" next because I have heard they are good. Has anyone tried those? Sounds a bit similar to "heavy duty" though!
Well Ive decided to give the GP Batteries Ultra High Performance AA Battery - Chrome/Black/Red (Pack of 24) Sold by: Batteries247 £6.25 a try see how they go... if they are really not up to par should be an easy return with Amazon
Analysis Discount and OEM cells perform very well Surprisingly, as in the 200mA test, the clear winner in this test was the Ikea alkaline, followed by other discount store batteries. The Ikea scored over 1200mAh, and costs just 10p per cell (sold in packs of 10.) Other discount shop cells did surprisingly well, with ReadyCell from Home Bargains (TJ Morris) doing very well too. Even at higher cut-off voltages of 1.1V, they still represent excellent value for money. The general conclusion is that most alkaline cells behave similarly to each other, though under higher drains some more significant differences become apparent. Project: Battery Showdown Cheapest or dearest? The results may surprise you... http://www.batteryshowdown.com/
Very good product, does what it says on the tin.
800 for the AAA and maybe 2100 for the AA - it's in the Q&A, but they really should specify it
What is the mAh capacity for the AA and AAA?
I've had these. They don't seam to last very long at all, so would not recommend them really.
Good, cheap landfill.
Excellent price but are they any good?
also have the AAA for the same sort of offer http://cpc.farnell.com/pro-elec/psg90902/battery-high-power-alkaline-aaa/dp/BT0561869
I'd buy that for a dollar.
