These are the Philips Industrial/Professional battery. Similar performance to Simply Duracell retail batteries but cheaper.

They won't last as long as the PROCELL Constant battery...probably about 80-85% as long lasting...but better value for money as much cheaper and perfectly adequate for most people most of the time. Good for low-medium duty applications. Excellent for indoor and outdoor Chrsitmas lights and toys.

Come in very compact packaging wrapped in a layer of cellophane well sealed and moisture resistant. Long date too.

Rebadged again as of late 2022. This latest version of the Duracell Industrial battery retains the long life and high quality of its predecessor. A very good quality, everyday general purpose battery. As supplied to schools, NHS, Armed Forces, govt departments, large companies...

For very heavy duty applications like digital cameras, handheld GPS etc you are still better off with rechargeables which will offer better value for money long-term,or lithium disposables but these will perform reasonably well in high drain devices...great in torches, radios, X-Box, photo gear, blood pressure monitors and other health gadgets, weather stations, toys, wireless fires and heating systems and much more.

Quite good value for money overall and trusted by many.

PROCELL Intense AA box of 10

Latest 'Industrial' offering from Duracell. These are the highest capacity alkaline AA batteries of 1.5v nominal rating available in the UK. I believe them to be the same battery under the label as the latest Duracell Optimum retail battery which featured heavily on TV just before Christmas...BUT they are much cheaper. Supermarkets sell Duracell Optimum at about £1 per battery...double the price of these.

Ideal in toys, handheld GPS, radios, intensive torch usage, Hive systems, Blood pressure monitors ,X-Box and lots more.

Can mix and match with AAA version at the same price if you wish.

Maxell Alkaline AA pack of 4

Decent quality 'everyday' battery from a respected brand name. Ideal for toys, radios, torches and other low-medium drain appliances. These will power higher drain appliances but are not really designed with those in mind and will consequently not last as long as a premium 'Industrial' or retail battery.

Excellent price-performance ratio...really good value for money. These are better value than Zinc batteries as even though more expensive will last 2-3 times as long.

Duracell's 'original' battery in its much improved form and in a very popular 5+3 packsize. These are the retail version of Duracell Industrial AA batteries in bright retail packaging. These batteries last longer than 'Simply Duracell'

Excellent batteries performance wise for toys, torches, weather stations. For very heavy duty use you would be better off with Duracell Ultra or even better ...Lithium or rechargeables.

Energizer Ultimate Lithium AA /L91 

Newly introduced pack of 10, very useful if you use more than a 4-pack each year. These have an incredibly long storage life and would make ideal emergency stock to store at home. According to Energizer these are the longest lasting disposable AA batteries in the world. Can be used in very cold or hot climates without performance suffering, and are lighter than alkaline AA too if weight is important.

JCB Super Alkaline AA pack of 18

Great value large pack of this very popular battery. The printing on the pack says 8x rather than 7x implying a slightly improved performance over the previous battery. I have requested clarification on this from the distributor but so far haven't had a response. Will update if I have anything to add, as and when.

Use in appliances that are medium to high drain or continuous drain like clocks. Ideal for toys. Excellent in torches as well.Probably the best value for money AA battery I sell. I use these myself.

Energizer Industrial AA pack of 10

An excellent quality long life alkaline battery aimed at business and corporate users but equally at home in the domestic environment.

These batteries fit nicely into my existing range of 'Industrial' batteries...they are longer lasting than the Philips Industrial but slightly less so than the Procell equivalent. priced accordingly.
