Mine arrived today via royal mail second class delivery in weird packaging (shock)
Nice one! Kids seem to be getting through these faster than the AA ones, so got some :)
These will come in very handy in about 4 weeks time for the Eid gifts (y) (y) (y)
Agree in part. It is possible to buy chargers that can recharge these alkaline batteries as well. Had one such charger for years and works a treat. If your device requires a high energy use these last much longer in the device than Ni-Mh rechargeable ones.
If rechargeable doesn't fit or not suitable for a certain item then its unavoidale. I was just making a point that non rechargeable are used too much. Can get a giant pack for a £1 in pound shops. The duracel rechargeable I use fit everything here easily apart from a few bubble guns I bought from butlins. That's a tight squeeze but still manage it
N.B. that one of the reviews on amazon say that this is actually IPX4, not IPX7. Which seems to be confirmed by the product listing on Energizer's own site: https://www.energizer.com/flashlights-lighting/panel-work-light Still seems a great price though, it's currently dropped to £18.32!
Wait, they make torch flasks now?!
That's one big torch flask!
Anyone else got a thing for torches? Them and flasks. If there's ever a full electrical power cut for a substantial time say 28 years and 39 days 4 hours 17 minutes and 33 seconds then I'll be ok

Heat added. Do you think it’s National. Do you have a picture of the back of the packaging barcode
Need some AAA's to power an led torch. what's the best value deal for disposals that are suitable (I already have tried quality rechargeable - I need disposable ones for this situation).
I snapped up loads of AAs when they were knocked down at my local store. But they don't seem to last anywhere near as long as they used to. Could this be why they're cheap? I get 10-15hrs of use from two in my Series X controller.
Y'know after God knows how many years reading these kind of deals on here, of all the "in store" offers being put up, I can't recall ONE occasion where I have managed to get the item at the store near me for the price claimed.
They had these and AA batteries at this price in Leigh Asda before Christmas , I’ve enough batteries now to power the country for year , cracking price

Colour me surprised. I'd still be surprised if this were designed in house. Regardless, modified sine-wave is cheap and nasty and something like a 500w inverter that would be used with power tools should be pure sine-wave.
Energizer Holdings, Inc. is an American manufacturer and one of the world's largest manufacturers of batteries,
My laptop came with a 180w power supply. When I'm powering it from DC I'll use a 90w car charger. In light load scenarios it only draws 80w and under my usual loads it draws up to around 120w at which point it'll pull from the battery for the extra power. It's not ideal but it is better than DC to AC to DC again. Especially considering that most 12v sockets won't put out more than 100w so I really don't know who this 500w inverter is intended for.
Energiser is a name that is stuck on anything that the people who own that name think will make money. In this case it was stuck on junk and it didn't sell and that's why there's a deep discount. Energiser don't make things.
Simplified view imo. What you are talking about is crest factor. Some computer power supplies that don't have power factor correction actually work well with the low crest factor of a modified square wave as opposed to a sine wave. https://www.ecmweb.com/power-quality-reliability/article/20891595/crest-factor-a-key-troubleshooting-parameter On the other hand it's likely that all ac motors to some extent or another will run less efficiently and hotter with a modified square wave compared to a sine wave. http://www.industrial-electronics.com/emct_2e_6i.html The situation is similar with linear power supplies with big low frequency transformers and other inductive loads. Heaters? Yes, accurate info.

These sort of deals happen soon after a store under goes a stocktake. Around a week after everything in that store that is no longer ranged will get reduced heavily. 50% first reduction, soon after 75% then if anything is left its 90/99%.
Hot but... Worlds first? Made with recycled batteries? They roll old batteries with new on the same line to say that? And then 3.8% probably reused the plastic from the old batteries (cheeky) :D Lasts longer probably by couple of minutes compared to cheapest alkaline batteries. This is one cheesy selling trick...
Sorry, my bad, I have tired eyes. First day back at work. 😴
These aren't rechargeables, are they?
How much originally!! What! For a pack of 4 or 4× packs of 4?

You say new tech, but doesn’t rechargeable not deliver in same way? If I remember rightly a 1.5v rechargeable only used to deliver 1.2v max. I am going back a way here though, back to when I used to have a discman, and rechargeables at the time simply did not deliver the same power and performance. Though I appreciate that things may have changed since. I’d be interested if anyone knows if rechargeables actually deliver same performance these days or if they are still a compromise?
I was in Asda, Llandudno Junction, this afternoon and saw some 12 packs of Energizer AA batteries reduced from £5.00 to £1.50. They had red stickers on them so I'm guessing this reduction was specific to the store rather than nationwide but if you're in that area you can pick up 24 batteries for £3.00 (assuming there's any left).
AA batteries will kick out 1.5 volts at full power. When they go down to about 1.3 volts they are considered 'dead' and will stop working. Rechargeable AA batteries all seem to be rated at 1.2 volts - NiMH is pretty old tech. Once lithium-ion rechargeable AAs become more established they will be the way to go.
There are few exceptions where 1.5v is needed but I always manage with my rechargeables, which are 1.3v. Blink cameras recommend lithium AA but seem okay on Varta rechargeables, Amazon basics high endurance are good and made in the Japanese Eneloop factory. (grey cases) the white ones (made in China aren't so good). If something comes with alkaline batteries I keep them for the remotes, they definitely do last longer than rechargeables. We all have views on disposable or reusable but the person that mentioned rechargeables only last weeks has never used rechargeables! and no a didn't come on here to poo poo disposables, I want some for my 3aa led Maglite which works better with Alkaline Batteries. Anybody had success in recharging these with a non smart charger?

I'm a BIG fan of this brand if batteries. For one thing, I've never known them to leak if forgotten about & left in a device, unlike Duracell Pro Cell batteries which, in my experience, is pretty much guaranteed. An important consideration as it can lead to the ruining of an expensive gadget.
Saw one store open so went in and bought..Thank you again NP23 <3

Robert Dyas are doing a box of 24 for 8.99. Picked up a couple of packs yesterday.
One-Stop are doing packs of 8 AA & AAA for £5.95 or £5.00 for 2 packs. No brainer
Careful buying these with Sainsbury's online. Attempted twice, both times substituted with more expensive ones which I get charged for. Batteries are not in the scheme for substituins so you pay full price.

This looks really poor performance, doesn't even mention how many lumen it is
Looks like an old style LED so won't be very bright. I'm guessing this is old stock being cleared by MyMemory and it isn't even very cheap? COB LEDs are so much better. 'D' batteries are very expensive too. Better to look out for rechargeable torches with COB 'bulbs', prices have come right down.

If you're buying Energizer branded batteries because you want a really long lasting one, you might be better to look for Energizer Max.

Not a bad deal, but works out as 29.9p per battery https://smile.amazon.co.uk/Kodak-Xtralife-Alkaline-Battery-Pack/dp/B00NFR1M7U/ I know its not Energiser, but its 21.5p / battery. Bear in mind this is standard Energiser, nothing special really.
