[Amazon.ca] AmazonBasics 10 count Lithium CR2032 3V Batteries $7.04

Needed some CR2032 batteries for my ecobee sensors, usually I got then from IKEA but not going to that zoo for now.

This is the same price as the 4 pack so seems like a decent deal. I read the Q&A and the most recent reply for expiry was 2028.

Who is supplying these Amazon rebranded batteries? I see someone stating battery issues with the ecobee sensors and battery juice issues.

The Duracell ones will last twice as long as an AmazonBasics. But if you don't mind swapping batteries more often, the Basics are a bit better buy. Just more wasteful.

I would agree with this assessment.

Not necessarily. I've had 2 instances where I have bought Energizer and Duracell name brand coin batteries from Amazon and have had some of them die very quickly even though the expiry date was good and everything. I think there may be a lot of knockoffs being sold. Surprising they can get away with it on Amazon. I complained to the Amazon seller and inquired whether they were genuine. No response. Amazon stepped in and refunded though. If you get them somewhere like Costco, I'm sure they'll be fine because they're genuine for sure.
I've bought Renata ?sp brand and off brand ones and have found them to be fine. Only situation where I noticed a significant difference was with the Energizer Ultimate Lithium series batteries, but I'm pretty sure those are way more expensive.

Me too man. I was buying some cheap ones on Amazon and they burned out in like a month or so. Ordered some new ones and put them in last week. Will update with success if it's better.

Yes. There's plenty of eBay sellers based in Canada that have good deals for button cell batteries.
I usually get Energizer or Maxell. The trick is to order another set when you still have 1-2 remaining from your previous set, so you don't completely run out while your next ones are shipping.

Don't waste you time with these off brands. Just pay once for energizer and it will work great. I learned lesson hard way.

I just wish they had a similar deal for the CR2025s. It blows my mind that they can charge considerably more per battery for something that holds considerably less charge.

I use those in my BMW fob and they don't last long. It has comfort access (keyless entry and start) so maybe that drains the fob faster, but every 2-3 months I get a notification on my nav screen telling me the fob battery is running low.

But for $0.42 each, I keep using them.
