Hello money-savers!

I recently thought I'd treat my bike to some new inner tubes so I got some of these (AV/Presta, 26"):

https://www.aldi.co.uk/26-27-5-inch-auto-valve-bicycle-tube/p/097682261898800

However when I replaced them I could hear the valve of the front tyre hissing and it completely deflated. Assuming a faulty valve I took it out and returned it for a replacement straight away but when I returned the back tyre had gone soft. To my amazement, even the replacement did the same.

Has anyone else had the same experience? Could I be doing something wrong. I only inflated them to 35psi using a compressor that I also bought in Aldi (plugs into the 12V supply in a car), could I have damaged the valves this way?
