Default ScrewFix PP9 batteries

Seems like a bargain to me - if you can find a branch that stocks them: -

They're listed as "Clearance" - which means I'd carefully check the use-by dates!

Still, at that price even if they only have a few Joules of electricity left inside, the cases can be opened-up and either restuffed with AA NiMH calls or a mains PSU fitted inside (I've got several old PP7s here which now each house a little 9V SMPS).

Noted - this Thread should probably be Deleted as I may have been too keen.

Can't find any branch of ScrewFix that has any of this Clearance stock!

This is the link to last year's thread:

https://www.vintage-radio.net/forum/...d.php?t=148617

At the time you could order them for delivery to any branch via click & collect. Don't think that's the case now. I suspect that the remaining few being sold for 49p will be some months past their date. They are zinc-carbon batteries.

I have just been looking to get some PP9s for stock and use in my Hackers, Screwfix has them listed at 50p but I can’t find anywhere with stock. The best price I found locally was B&Q at 3.65, however this was a clearance price as they are no longer stocking them. They are part of Kingfisher the same group as Screwfix. Next best price was at the electrical wholesaler TLC at 3.96 in tens.

Hopefully stocks will remain at others such as Wilko, the electrical wholesalers will keep them for a while as they are listed as spares for backup lighting, although I have no idea what they fit!
