Their batteries are really good. I have some older 2400 which we use in the Fuji S692z and they last really well.  I might invest in some 2900's when they come back in stock.  ;)

Don't try to buy them from their ebay shop though, as clicking that button takes you to a 0 items found page.  ;)

I see their delivery times haven't improved, my order took about 10 days, such a shame because their prices and selection is quite reasonable.

Garry that's true, but I never buy anything needed in a hurry from them.  It can be worth the wait sometimes.  ;)

Oh, I'm well used to their delays. I usually bulk buy my batteries and CD/DVDs from them. it's such a shame, if they upped their game on delivery times they'd be a cracking outfit. (but I suppose their prices might rise)

I'll see how long these take to arrive, I bit the bullet and ordered that value pack of 16 x 2900ma batteries on Friday night, http://www.7dayshop.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=777_3&products_id=112945

According to the order history they were showing as dispatched on Sunday.

Don't suppose four days is too bad tbh.  I'd be happy with that.   

Any reason you use Alkaline rather than NIMH batteries Alf?  Just curious, as they do work out more expensive.

No reason at all Mick. In fact I never considered comparing the 2. I just seen the offer and sent for them.
Will look and compare next time I need some. The grandkids gadgets and them daft air fresheners seem to eat them up.

Yeah, been there and done that.  At a guess I'd say you'd save a shed load of money buying rechargeable, especially the 2900ma ones, they should last for ages with each charge.  They should pay for themselves in no time.

Can't do anything without paying them for it nowadays.  ::)  What next, a breathing tax perhaps.  :idea:

Mick I still have a dozen rechargables for my hand held scanner and my point and squirts (also from 7day) but I found that letting the young uns put them into their odds and sods meant they would chuck em when flat rather than put them on charge, or they would "loose" them somehow in their bags, bedrooms or garden

Actually, that's a good point. I can understand why those become more attractive in those circumstances.  ;)

One thing I've also noticed is a lot of toys / games etc seem to use three batteries instead of 2 or 4, that makes charging them, and keeping them in sets very difficult.  My charger will only charge them in pairs, or fours.  I'm sure they do this on purpose to keep you buying batteries.  :knuppel2:

Curiously, I've just received a battery charger from them, that not only charges all variants 1 to 4, but has a "refresh" button that discharges the batteries before refills!

Hi Carl.  Are you saying it will charge any number of batteries up to a total of four?  one or three for example.  If so, have you a link to it please, that might be just what I need.  ;)

I get fed up with the kids nicking my rechargeables. I found two in the kitchen this morning which seem to have appeared on a no  names no pack drill basis. Every few months I buy abt 48 Panasonic normal batteries from 7-Day and the kids still use my rechargeables.
