GOOD PACK, BAD PACK - positives and negatives
Oh, dear, another less than positive observation.
I must still be in a bad mood. Or there really is not much to be positive about (I have press releases from the Guv and WRAP about food waste, labelling and/or energy from waste in my pending box, so here's hoping I'll find a gem or two).
Anyway, in my ongoing gallivanting I needed to get some batteries, and as I did not have several quids or access to my rechargeable stash was left with little option.
Even the stand looked odd, but when I got back and looked at the packs, a few things rather struck me:
1) Why is there a need for the 50% extra top section if they are in a custom stand? Presuming this is for other, dangly uses on top of the need to self-promo... and...
2) Why do the 8 AAA's get to squeeze in side by side, but the AA's go two by two, with all that extra spacing?
