As the new models have arrived another discount on the old LADDA AAA 900 mAh rechargeable batteries. The new ones only have 750 mAh. Good time to buy some!
Isn’t the 4 packs of 1950mAh AA for $6.50 (visible in the bottom right of the pic) a better deal?
But you're comparing AA to AAA?
Nah, I was just pointing out that it appears 4 pack of AA is $6.50 (which seems like a good price)
I take your point though, if you are after AAA then AA deals aren’t much help
What's price of AA old model?
None left in Canberra. The new 2450 AA pack is $10
Wonder if these new lower capacity models will put Eneloop back on top (at least for capacity), value still goes to IKEA, even though I hate IKEA with a passion.
I am thinking more like Ladda old = eneloop pros and Ladda new = eneloop whites? And I think Ikea capacity is better than eneloop pro by a few mah. There was a video on the same. If the capacity is the same and they are LSD, i dont see why I should buy eneloops unless I am charing them everyday for rigorous use which I am not.
I'm genuinely curious as to why you dislike Ikea?
I despise Harvey Norman and Gerry Harvey. His pushing of the Government to enforce GST on all purchases on over seas stores just annoyed the hell out of me. Half of the stuff I buy cannot be purchased in local shops, so it didn't affect his (or most) Australian's business. I avoid purchasing from Harvey Norman. It's my little protest against him and the company.
I had a run in with warranty with them last year; they delivered me damaged cabinets and refused to provide a refund saying it was my fault. They lied and used every excuse in the book to avoid responsibility, so many wasted hours on hold with customer care, or being ignored on email.
Eventually they were forced to refund once WA Fair Trading took one look at the facts. They were so rude when providing the refund it left a very sour taste in my mouth.
On top of that, like most multinationals, they shift massive profits overseas to avoid tax, and don't pay their fair share in Australia. Just like our mate Gerry, they are no better.
Just like you, I have my own little protest happening, as such pay more for Eneloops haha
Fair call. Being treated like a liar is not fun, and having to go to Fair Trading just to get a refund / repair / replacement shouldn't have to happen. Some companies just expect you to accept their decision, right or wrong. It's good that you pushed it and got it sorted.
It's also something to think about. When buying goods, inspect them completely for damage as soon as you get it. That way you can instigate the refund or replacement straight away.
Thanks for explaining, and good luck :)
In Vic, missed the AAA sales, bought many AA. Anyone know where I can get AAA cheap?
I went to IKEA in Springvale last weekend and all the LADDA AAA 950MAH all sold out.
You mean 900mah?
Oops..yes that is right.
