Duracell PRE-CHarged AA/AAA 4 Pack $6.45 (50% OFF)
Posted by: space-time

They're on sale at TARGET form 9/1 till 9/21. Regular price is 12.99, so this is 50% OFF

I could not find them in the battery section (next to electronics), but I asked a red-shirt guy and he told me they have some in the "back-to-school" aisle.

These are LSD (Low Self Discharge) cells. The ones with White Top are in fact ENELOOPS (Made in Japan). The ones with Black Top are Rayovac Hybrids, Made in China. Both are very very good. I would chose the White ones though, if available, if not the Black ones are just as good.

The only PROBLEM with these cells is that they look a lot like regular Alkaline cells and kids could throw them out if they're not careful.

Thanks! I came within an inch of buying these at full price at another store last night, before my skinflint reflex took over.

I doubt they would have scanned full price at the register. Maybe they didn't put new price tags. Use one of those price scanners to double check, they should scan at the sale price.

They are showing regular price on the web page. I will have to stop by. I really like these batteries, the discharge/recycle characteristics are great for flash. It's great to be able to charge these and they will be nice and full when projects are ready to be shot. As was told to me, these are relabeled eneloops.

I wonder if this was just a close-out at a local store - I checked the weekend ad and didn't see anything. Also confirmed the price on the web pages is as mentioned above. Space-time - where did you learn about this deal? - hate to run over for nothing.

it's been reported on various sites, here is one:

Don't worry about the price on the web page. Go to the store. Even then, don't worry about the ptice tag, just scan the package and see for yourself.

BTW, from above link: "Mike's Merchandise has them for $4.50."

I purchased this afternoon. $6.45 confirmed. They had some white top @800mAh, some black top @ 800mAh, and some black top @ 1000mAh. I went for the 1000's.

The eneloops I have are 2000mAh. I suppose the Duracells would be good for cordless mice or something... or were those AAAs?

AAA, sorry. Have lots of AA around, but the kids had swiped all the AAA in the house.

Just grabbed a couple at my local store (white tops). They had obvious on-sale signs with the $6.45 price here.

They were all out of AAs in the battery section but thanks to space-time I found some in the back-to-school section. But as noted, the sale goes until 9/21 so there should be ample time to get more stock if your store ran out.

Question about these. I picked up two 4-packs each of the AA and AAA. I also grabbed a 2-pack of AA with the charger. I just noticed that the AAA are not labeled as pre-charged on the package, whereas the AA are. Also, the AAA have the black tops but do say Made In Japan on the back, so I'm guessing they're the eneloops. Finally, the AAA have a date of 2005 on the package. Does that even matter with rechargeables?

I guess I'm wondering if I should keep the AAA or return them and see if they have newer stock and/or any that say they're pre-charged. Any thoughts?

If they're not labeled "Pre-charged" then they're most likely regular Ni-MH and not the low self-discharge variety. I would take them back.

finally got to my local Target today. they had them labeled at the sale price back in electronics. Black top 2000mAh. they are stocked right next to the regular rechargeables at the same price; i almost picked up the wrong package, so check that the package says pre-charged!
