Decent Cheap Batteries.

Post by tozadog » Tue Nov 11, 2014 6:38 pm

Ive always used Kodak Xtralife batteries in all my detectors and found them really good and only £1 for 6 AA's from pound land.

They now sell Kodak Ultra batteries for £1 for 4 AA's supposed to last 25% longer than xtralife so ive bought a few sets to try in my ATPRO.

Will report how I get on and how long they last .

Sounds good. I have a battery charger that will recharge ordinary batteries as well rechargeable ones. Each time I recharge the normal batteries, they hold just a little less charge and then after five or six charges I chuck em! ::g
Garrett ProPointer + MineLab Safari + Quest Q40, and loads of determination.

I use the ultimate energizer AA batteries on my T2 and have only just put the 3rd set in for this year. I tend to go out a lot too, got them off a certain website for a tenner. 12 for a tenner is not bad considering how long they last.
