It might be a good deal, but I've had bad experience from Chinese "Kodak" batteries. They seem to weigh half what a normal battery weighs and last about half as long!

I bought these a couple of years ago, and they hardly last for any time at all.

I use 100% rechargeables so I wouldn't know about the life of single use ones.

I have switched to Panasonic Eneloop cells, which hold their charge at least as well as disposable cells, and are very reasonably priced for what they are.

Those are the ones I have been using for the last year or two.

Do you use Eneloop cells in TV controllers as well as in flashguns.

I have bought the Duracells in bulk via Google searches, there is an amazing quantity of retailers selling Duracells in bulk packs.

I have bought the Duracells in bulk via Google searches, there is an amazing quantity of retailers selling Duracells in bulk packs.

I have started using Eneloops in virtually everything as and when the disposables run flat. This includes the TV remote and my CD player remote.

The Eneloop Pro's in particular shorten flash recycling times significantly. I don't use flash all that often, but I know the Eneloops will work when I need them; which isn't the case with other rechargeable cells, or indeed Duracells.

However, my reason for using Eneloops in remotes, doorbells and suchlike is that they don't leak. In my experience both Duracells and Energiser lithium cells often leak long before they are discharged, causing damage to equipment. I have also found that quite a few unused cells have been flat, and even leaking before their 'use by' dates.

For the AAA size for my FL-300Rs, I use a lot of those too.
