Default WTD: Source of cheap NiMH batteries

I need to get hold of a few AA NiMH batteries (probably about 10-12 of
them) they don't need to be high capacity 1300mAh would do. Just for
kids toys (which seem to be multiplying rapidly).

Regards,
Jason.

Dunno what counts as cheap for you, but I bought my last lot from
Strikalite:

Service was good.

Remember if you're replacing alkalines with re-chargeables that the cell
voltage isn't the same, so they may not perform quite as well as with
fresh disposables.

I use www.7dayshop.com
"Santa" bought a clatter last Xmas.
8 Pack Ultra High Capacity 2100 mAh Ni-Mh AA rechargeable batteries 10.49
Their stuff is fairly high capacity too as they specialise in cameras. V
good prices on digital camera accessories too.

I suppose that why ToysRUs is one of the cheapest places to buy batteries.
I'd recommend 7DayShop too.

Maplin's special offer catalogue, included with my order last week, had
8 AA NiMH batteries and a charger for, IIRC, 14 quid. Search
maplin.co.uk for code WN45Y.


They have 4-packs of 2000mAh cells on promotion at 5.99. I think I'll pick
up some myself at that price.
