Thanks for the reminder.
I have remote that uses Duracell DL2025. MEC has Energizer CR2025 from which I can tell is same thing and will work.

Last time I bought battery for remote it was at staples full price at $5.19. Can get at MEC for $1.25 :O
You know, your local dollar store has probably has a 5-pack of CR2025's for something like $2.

Yes, when you log in or create an account to checkout they ask for your membership #. If you don't have it handy the system will look it up for you by asking your phone # and street address IIRC.

The ones at Dollarama are Sunbeam and come in a pkg of 3. They don't last and are not comparable to the Energizers.
This is THE time to buy these Energizer CR2025s as you will not find them cheaper anywhere and shipped.
Most keyfobs use them.

$5 lifetime membership; most MEC branded merchandise I believe also have LT warranties.
($5 is not ideal if all you want are the batteries)

Thanks for input on dollarama batteries. I assumed they would be crap compared to an energizer.
Looks like I'll get two of the cr2025 and some niteize twist ties.

CR2025s don't power "high drain devices". They may or may not have the same capacity of the Energizer ones though, I'll give you that.

My comment wasn't limited to CR2025s. Keyfobs use CR2032s as well.

Note that 32's are thicker and last longer than 25's (same V, higher mAh, same price), so if your fob can use it, it's better.

What does fob stand for?
The little flashlight things people put on keychains?

Vehicle key'fob'... I only use Energizers.
For cheap devices, I would just use the dollar store ones.

i haven't come across any "cheap" devices that would make good use of dollar store batteries. dollar store batteries do not last more than a week or two in any of my devices, whether high drain or low drain, expensive or cheap. hence why i stay away from them, esp when MEC has them for so cheap.

Bought some of those dollar store AAA batteries for a battery operated pepper grinder we have. They pepper grinder barely worked. Put in normal Energizer batteries, and it worked fine. Dollar store batteries indeed suck.
