Hi all, been to Lidl this afternoon and they had a stack of NiMH batteries. 4 x AAA 900mAh, 4 x AA 2500mAh, 2 x C 4Ah, 2 x D 4.5Ah or PP3 200mAh sizes at £2.00 PER SET. So that’s a set of 8 x 2500mAh for your '817 for £4. They also had chargers but I didn’t examine them - I have a good one already.
I’ve found Lidl stuff to be very good quality as a rule - so hopefully these batteries will be no exception.
I know offers vary according to area so check out www.lidl.co.uk - current specials and put in your postcode.
No, I don’t work for them
