Pricer yes, I'm not too sure what you mean when you say it doesn't last long?

Do you mean capacity? The Duracell is quoted at 15000mah, the rechargeable is quoted at 8500mah so around half the life/capacity.

It should be easily possible to get 100 charge cycles from the rechargeable D cell if kept within the operating specifications for discharge/charge and temperature.

In the UK:

Pack of two Duracell D - £4.99
Pack of two Ansmann D - £24.99 + Charger £16.99 = £41.98

So yes it is pricier to go with the LSD solution but after 8-9 charges you are in profit.
