Didn't last

They were manufactured in 04/2014, 10 years old, but I'm going to ditch them today. My charger says they have high internal resistance of about half an ohm which is far too great to drive much. Show details

Alright but half of them no longer usable

These are ok batteries for the price but dont expect them to last. Its been a 50/50 experience with me. Half of the batteries are still useable in string lights the rest failed during the 3-4 years i have had them. In comparison to "brand" names these tend to have a higher drop out rate, meaning theyre no longer chargeable. SO whilst you save money at the front end you tend to pay for again in the long run with dropouts. Show details

Aldi "No" Energy Rechargeable Batteries

They were cheap and worked okay for a few months but now practically everyone of my (2 dozen) Aldi "No" Charge batteries bring up an error in the smart charger and will not recharge. Back to known brands with no issues. Show details

No worries !!

Have been using these for 5 years without any problems. I need more but my local store doesn't stock them any more. Some complainants are using fast chargers which is not a good idea with any battery. Also, these are not lithium batteries and should only be recharged when totally discharged. Show details

I have used Aldi batteries rechargable for many years and have had great success. I use an after market charger that even though it is a cheapy has given us perfect service. I am finding it hard to to get them.

Active Energy AA and AAA Batteries

I've purchased this brand of batteries some years ago with some skepticism to start with. I noticed and this is by using and charging the same batteries over and over again to my admiration of them for the main reason of them never ever giving up on my usage. I was always able to use them and charge them and use them again in my electronic surveillance to my fullest satisfaction.
I therefor give my full support and recommendation for this brand. Show details

Does not work

Used the charger one time and then it never came on again. Yes the batteries are in the right position. Batteries do not stay charged. Sad. I was hoping for better.  Show details

Another with years of use

I have a mix of both AA & AAA Aldi Activ Energy rechargeables in wall clocks, multiple remote controls, cordless mouse & cordless keyboard. I also use them in solar powered Christmas lights and take them out after the lights come down to add to the household battery pool.
I use the Activ Energy battery charger (which will also charge other brands of AA NiMh & NiCd) and have yet to have a failure or a battery leak.  Show details

Years of usage

I see bad reviews for these but I have purchased a good few sets over the years from many different aldi stores, some abroad, since they first appeared - with no problems. I use them in all sorts of devices singly and combined up to a set of eight; in various torches, remotes, trailcam, drone, hair trimmer, shaver, radio - some rarely used, some often used so usage rates and drain varies. I mix and match them without thought. I have a normal intelligent charger. I have had absolutely no problems or failures and some of these batteries are several years in use. I can't imagine why people are getting problems.


I bought the Battery charger the third time I plugged it in to use it there was a big spark and a loud pop. Needless to say it no longer works. Don’t buy it Show details

Would love to recommend, but just too unreliable

I've been purchasing the activ energy rechargable batteries for the last 12-18 months wanting to go green and reduce my single use battery consumption and have beeb charging them with an activ energy high speed intelligent module battery recharger, however inevitably the batteries end up going bad after only a couple of uses and I just can't recommend them. This ALDI product is a dud. Show details

These batteries are not holding charge after a year or so

I bought about 20 of these batteries and these batteries are not holding charge after a year or so (charger reported them faulty). also, capacity isn't great to begin with and can't be used in cameras or high drained devices. I got what I paid for and learn my lessons. tossed them all back to the battery recycling bin from ALDI. Show details

Only just bought, but noticed a little about other reviews

So far the batteries have charged in the time stated, I've put them into the kids RC robots and a boat and worked for the expected time. I noticed a lot of reviews where people are whinging about the batteries, rechargeable batteries are not for slow burning power like clocks and remote controls, of course they will leak, and what's the point putting a more expensive rechargeable battery in a clock or remote, my clocks and remotes only ever use batteries that are to flat for other things. Rechargeable batteries shud not be left in anything you charge them keep them in a draw, use them for those things that usually eat batteries like RC contraptions. Just seems silly what I've read. Show details

I like the idea of RECHARGABLE batteries and they are very inexpensive,but the battery life is just HORRIBLE on these

Good product,very inexpensive,but bad battery life. Yeah. Bad battery life. Costs around 5 dollars (I think) Rechargable. That is it.

Questions & Answers

I love Aldi rechargeable batteries but haven't seen any in our local stores for some time. Will they be coming back into stock?


I spoke with staff and they said they no longer have them in stock, only single use batteries. I'd say due to all the failures. I basically have absolutely none of the 30 plus I bought working anymore.

Why is this not available?


Why has aldi stopped selling these? These were the best thing in the whole shop!


Aldi is always looking trouble free and complaint free product perfectionism. I for one had never had any problem these "Aldi Active Energy Rechargeable" batteries. I still have some I heavily use and recharge without any issues.
