Frequently Asked Questions

What are the expiry dates of your batteries?

Expiry dates are constantly changing and we have found it is a large amount of work to keep updating these dates online throughout the entire range as they change every few months. Button batteries are 2-4 years, specialist alkaline are 2-4 years, AA, AAA and PP3 alkaline are 8-10 years and silver oxide watch batteries are 2-4 years. We have a fast stock rotation so the expiry dates of all our batteries are some of the longest you will find anywhere. If you would like to know the specific date for any particular battery please send us an email.

What are your delivery times and charges?

All orders placed before 2.45pm (Mon-Fri) will be shipped the same day. Orders placed after this time will be shipped the next working day. We offer free shipping on every order and delivery is typically within 2-3 working days (Monday-Saturday) from the day of dispatch. For a small extra charge we can dispatch your order by expedited delivery. Expedited is a 1-3 working day service with the majority of orders arriving the next working day. The expedited delivery charge is based on total weight and starts at just 50p. The cost will be automatically calculated and shown at checkout.

What is your returns policy?

If you change your mind or have purchased an incorrect item we can provide a refund or exchange if you notify us by email or telephone within seven days of receipt. Items must be returned undamaged and unopened to qualify for a refund or exchange and an RMA number must be requested from us prior to returning any items. If your items have arrived damaged or any items are missing please inform us immediately by telephone. All items are to be returned at the buyers expense unless the item is faulty or incorrectly supplied by us upon which we will refund any return postage costs incurred. Your statutory rights are not effected.

Which payment methods do you accept?

You don't have the batteries that I need. Can you get them?
