Got these odd batteries from Charlie Birch?

Charlie Birch are saying they're definitely Duracell (a rebrand of their Industrial range they say) but they look Mickey Mouse to me. What's the significance of the Christmas tree?! They don't like Duracell at all...

Doesn't really matter if they are Duracell, they don't look it, customers won't buy them. They definitely look cheap. Although saying that, due to everything now being rechargeable, my Duracell battery sales have tanked.

We never had any issues selling them.

We now stock the Procells but in boxes of 10 rather than blister packed in 4's or singles.

It even says on the back in small print "packaging not affiliated with battery manufacturer" - WEIRD

Graham - when you stocked these were they from CB and did they look like this? Thanks

No Toolbank, I have a trade account and get free next day delivery even for say a screwdriver costing 50p as they have vans visiting out town every day.

Hate CB stopped using them over 15 years ago I will never use them again.

Same here, "grandfathered" in! Works well for us. Even though the Abus prices make us want to weep.

We get the Duracell "industrial" batteries from Toolbank and they're beautifully presented as you'd expect from Duracell. They're not like these! I suspect CB are buying in bulk and repacking?!

It's not CB repacking them i believe they buy them already packed like this.
