Thanks Russ.

Up until recently one of our supermarket sold 4 X AA rechargeables for $8 a packet, at this rate they were worth using, even if they were replaced every 12 months. They have now stopped selling these so once my current batch die, I will be looking at repalcing them.

Avoid Duracells. Too many of them leak prematurely and do damage. This may be due to reports of quantities of fakes circulating worldwide, but I've not learned of any way to tell them apart. At one point I sent them a complaint. I got back a letter sort of apologizing but including coupons for more Duracells which weren't used.

As our "toys" use batteries, what experiences do we have with various brands / types and what is the best "value for money", recharables or alakalines?
