Just saw the upcoming week's catalog. Dirt cheap for a 30pack @ ~17c per battery AA or AAA. Good for around the house too if ur into that. On sale starting Saturday 19th Oct.
Price in title fella.
Going to buy some to hand out at XR rallies
Fit nicely into a slingshot I reckon.
I think if you fling them hard enough, they will have the desired effect of exploding on impact.
If you throw them at police do they charge you with "assault and/with battery"?
@StrayfireX: These batteries cannot be charged.
If they are "Super Heavy Duty" as in carbon-zinc instead of alkaline … I'd still rather get Varta for double the price.
(wonder if Bunnings will drop the Varta's to match anyway, that'd be a steal!)
Would be good if bunnings drop varta, will definitely buy
They did once but not after - probably realised they weren't alkaline afterwards
Please don't buy carbon-zinc batteries.
Greta won't be happy
these suck, save your five bucks for 25 alkaline ones from supercheap auto when time is right.
Just get Eneloop.
Don't add to landfill.
which place sells cheap eneloops?
Not sure mate. I can't recall there ever being an Eneloop post on Ozbargain.
When dick smith was dick smith they used to have sales a lot
Lol. Totally saturated sarcasm. Love it. There was a post for Eneloop pros two days ago.
@abacus: Only for eBay plus members which doesn't include everyone
@Micoa: Plus the 10,000 other posts over the years…
@abacus: But it's not available now…
@Micoa: Click on the three lines at the top, enter Eneloop, then sort by date. If everything has expired, repeat in five minutes.
Yep. Just look for made in Japan
@Drogo: The "eneloops chocolat" edition is made in Japan. I actually scooped a few from the dick Smith when they were around. Still going strong. I actually ended up buying more recently
Ikea LADDA white batteries are rebranded Eneloop Pros (note made in Japan)
Agree especially when people toss in their general bins and not dispose of correctly at a recycling centre. It leaches toxic chemicals which enter into the earth and waterways.
Good for around the house too if ur into that.
Struggling to work out what you meant by this
Vibrating sex toys, obviously.
Wouldn't last 5 minutes.
That's still longer than some of us haha
Not throwing at cop cars…
Heavy Duty (aka Zinc-carbon) batteries have about a third of the energy storage of alkaline batteries, have a terrible shelf life, and perform poorly in high-drain devices.
They probably should be banned by government due to being a waste of resources.
Agreed. Also don't understand why incandescent light bulbs are still a thing and not just banned
Because LED bulbs make Trump look orange… https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/video/2019/sep/13/donald...
Well I hate seeing white LEDS on all new cars. They should put warmer-toned LEDS easy on the eyes at night
Where can you still buy incandescent lamps?
Incandescents stopped being sold a few years ago.
No they didnt.
still quite a few regular incandescents around:
also masses of halogens.
(halogen globes are still incandescents)
Oh wow, the term “heavy duty” is somewhat misleading, I assumed alkalines were regular duty, and that heavy duty was better! Yikes.
Smart people buy rechargeables, unless the device won't run on them, in which case they buy alkalines.
I use rechargeable batteries on everything, except some remotes that last 2+ years with none rechargeable battery. I still have 6/12 the none rechargeable battery that I bought few years ago. But thanks OP
If the government won't ban these, at least OzBargain should.
People need to be educated as to how crap these are. Then they'll stop buying and they'll stop making.
Government won't ban them. That's too nanny state.
