Deal Alert - 4 x AA GP Recyko NiMH LSD batteries - $6.25 @ BIC

4 x AA Batteries – $6.25
4 x AAA Batteries – $3.04

Code: “5TH9OFF” for 9% off

I own the same batteries (bought somewhere else) and consider them to be on par with eneloop so far with my experience in the last 6 months or so since I have owned them.

I paid $14 for mine and consider this a very good price.

are they genuine?

the pictures are blurry, but one shows what i think is capacity, and that seems good. but then there’s another picture showing weight i think, and on that one it looks as if the battery weigh 13,3 g, which is wrong…

Would you mind keeping the wrong flashlight?

I didn’t even think about ordering any AAA’s.
Placed another order for 2 packs of AAA’s for less than 6 bucks shipped.
If they are decent batteries that’s a steal of a deal.

I’ve bought some early this year. AA and AAA. They seem genuine. Only issue I had was that the batteries looks dirty and the silver top had some stains. Seems to me like very OLD stocks.
Maybe u guys have better luck.

How bright is bright enough...

Runtime VS Lumens...

Are these Low Self Discharge? If so, why is that not mentioned [on the Web page]?

The wrapper doesn’t line up very good on the 2nd from the right in that pic.

Yes Recyko is GPs range of LSD batteries.

No idea why its not mentioned in the description but its not always in eneloops descriptions either.

I never tried their LSD cells but their regular nimhs are solid.

If I didn’t just score 8 packs of duraloops for $6.63 each (3 of those with a $1.50 off coupon, making them $6.07 each!), I’d get some of these.

“Always Ready” must mean LSD. Good catch.

I used to like “Always Ready”. Will soon find out whether I still like it.

There is “Green generation” under the Recyko+. On my locally bought one it says “New generation”. I’ve checked at GP website as well , and on the picture it says “New” and not “Green” as well.

You’re right, if you google you can find both “green” an “new” writings.
Although the ones in this review are “green” from the photos.

If it makes a difference to new customers at buyincoins, you don’t have to establish an account. Procedure is:
1. add to cart
2. enter discount code
3. checkout with paypal
4. confirm shipping address with bic after paypal
5. they send an order confirmation to your email (I guess they get the email from paypal)

Also, today is the last day for the 9% coupon. They had a notice at the top of the page saying so, but the notice is gone now.

Thanks ezarc for the heads up. It’s hard to resist AAA’s at 75 cents each (2 packs) shipped.

Inquire…Choose…Proceed

I cant get the coupon code to work anymore. Is it just me?

It seemed to work the other day, but I never placed an order since I wanted to do some discharge testes on several of my batteries first....
