    Try a local Target or Walmart. Good prices and typically fresh stock.

    Geez, I know no one reads a thread between opening posts and the last one. I said about a year and half ago to look into this battery from Battery Junction. I never had a problem with it, usually buy 20 then sell 10 to my club pro so he can sell it to his members. Price has gone up to $1.20 per battery but hellva cheaper than Target or Walmart. Lasts me 3-5 months each.

    Geez. I read your post(s). I also don't want to pay for expedited shipping to get it in the time I need it. Kinda defeats the cost savings. This is why I asked about Amazon as I can get it in the time I need it and won't have to pay extra shipping since I have prime.



    Don't assume you know what people do or don't do, and just because you made a suggestion doesn't mean that it works for everyone in every situation.

    Bingo. You can get a 12 pack at Walmart for $21 which is about 1.75 a battery AND they are a brand name. Plus you don’t have to pay shipping. No need to wait - pick them up today. Similar deals available at Target. Often the shipping costs for online products negates any perceived deal (like used golf balls).

    No such deal at Walmart. Not even close. Nor at Target.



    You must be confusing a bunch of mail-order and eBay sellers (who pay to be listed on Walmart.com) with actual in-store products.



    There is no package of CR2 batteries larger than Qty 2 on ether Walmart or Target in-store and those are around $5/battery.
    Everything has its drawbacks, as the man said when his mother-in-law died, and they came down upon him for the funeral expenses.

    I was just in their web site and that’s what was listed. You could pick up in store.

    Send a link if you could. I saw some 123 twelve packs for that price, but not CR2. I'd like to order a few from Amazon tonight to make sure they arrive in time, unless I can just pick them up at locally.

    I was searching for cr2 batteries as well and went with some panasonic batteries off amazon. When I looked and placed the order, it appeared as an add-on item so I just ordered some other household items I'll eventually need anyways to get it up to the minimum order amount. There were some cheaper 'no name' brands on amazon and a few of the reviews said they received old batteries that died within a couple weeks and another review that said the voltage was too high for rangefinders. Something along the lines of the el cheapos were 3.2 and rangefinders need 3.0. The panasonic has been working fine for me this past week and they seem to be the most cost effective among the 'name brand' companies.

    I paid about $6 for a Duracell two pack on Amazon last year. I replace the battery every January around the same time I regrip my clubs. I dont use the rangefinder near enough to have the battery die in a year so its just one of the things I do every offseason.



    This is one of those things where I wont quibble over a buck or two. Duracell or Energizer, I can pretty much count on those lasting a whole season in a piece of equipment that draws/uses very little power.

    TM M5 6-AW Steelfiber 95 s

    I ended up with two energizers for buck or so more than. That saved me from having to deal with going to the store and they arrived before my match tomorrow evening.



    I'm in the same boat, I think this battery lasted me almost two seasons. I generally play 1-2x per week in pa. Season stops in Dec for most years and I shoot the pin at least once per hole.
