These extra-high capacity nickel metal hydride rechargeable batteries offer amazing value for money. Up to 1,000 charge/discharge cycles can be expected and a single charge outlasts most standard alkaline batteries. This makes these the ideal choice for today’s battery-hungry digital devices such as digital cameras, MP3 players, hand-held games etc.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dimensional Problems Bought these to replace cells in BT phones but found they were slightly oversize in that the positive pillar did not project clear of the shoulder thereby preventing proper contact with the tags in the phone. It is about time battery manufacturers realized there is no latitude inside many devices to accommodate 'out of spec' batteries!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really very good AAA batteries These cells were really quite good, excellent in fact. With a AAA cell I was very sceptical of the 1000 mah claims, as usually these type of rechargeable batteries rarely give even 800mah. However, on testing after 2 discharge/recharge cycles at 1C (1 amp) they were performing really well, they were all around 900 mah and may improve a little more with use....Really good cell and great capacity for the money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from total rubbish Bought these because they said extra high capacity. Charged them fully for some LED battery candles and they lasted a couple of hours before dud. Took them back to the forge retail park shop the day after purchase as they were faulty to be told nothing wrong with them and would only be given a gift card and not a refund as wished. Really bad batteries and poor service. Would not buy these batteries again. Feel really let down by maplin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best rechargeable batteries. These are the best rechargeable batteries I've ever had. They seem to last for ever. Have bought many sets of these, especially when they are on special offer. They outlast more expensive makes. Well worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value. I go with DaveC. Charging these out-of- the package AAA's for 8hrs, and under-load, they gave 880/920mAh. After a few recharge cycles these should stabilize to about 950mAh. Now being use as a replacement for 1.2v, ni-mH 350mAh for three outdoor security cameras. Excellent value, packaging and delivery.

I'm told that if using these for solar lights these batteries never need to be recharged as they're automatically getting recharged by the sun, is that correct?

Asked by: Aupar
That would depend on the level of sun the solar light gets. normally this is the case.

Asked by: pikey
It would depend on the solar light in question. without the specification of the light in question we would be unable to say.

Why are these batteries 1.2v when most ordinary AAA's are 1.5v? Does it make any difference in performance?

Asked by: Priamou
Because all NiMH rechargeables are 1.2v. They will work fine in most devices you will only see issues if the item says do not use rechargeable batteries.

Are these suitable for a Gigaset A585 telephone system?

Asked by: Bubbles
We would not recommend standard rechargeable batteries for use in a cordless phone as they are not designed for constant recharging. These meet the same requirements as the originally included batteries.

Asked by: Sookie
Yes these should be fine to use but to be sure i would advice you to double check with the manufacture of your phone.
