Read the reviews. Battery life is horrible if they even have a charge when you get them. I understand cheap but these would be going straight to the trash by the looks of it. That 3 yr shelf life must be referring to the battery casing I assume.

Lol 3 year shelf life, as in they've already been on the shelf for 3 years

Ikea usually has good batteries, AVOID THE CR batteries at Ikea. Just as bad as the OP ones from Amazon, China junk. Lasts 2 weeks if you are LUCKY, garbage. If Ikea wasn't so far I would had driven all the way and told them to give me back my money for these piece of crap batteries.

LiCB batteries work fine for me. I bought a 10 pack CR2032 and a 10 pack CR2450 in March and used a few of them without issue.

You got lucky, recent review:

Quality Control is Lacking

With the price, you expect to receive a few lemons in a pack of 20. However, I'm currently sitting at a 50% failure rate so that's pretty awful.

Update: dropped to 1 star from 2 as failure rate is now at 75%

Wow next day prime delivery of a 5 dollar item.

Something is wrong here when we legislate ban on plastic bags, but this far more wasteful use of resources, is not even on the radar.

Where is the ban on giving away inkjet printers in attempt to hose you on the ink.

I'll take a flyer for $5.05 delivered.... I'm sure they will be fine for my scale, my key fob, and what I need them for.

With a 75% failure rate in a recent review, you should had just paid $5.05 for ONE energizer CR 2032 that will out last the ENTIRE 20 pack :)

I actually use rechargeable CR 2032 batteries from Aliexpress. You can buy a kit that comes with a charger AND rechargeable CR2032 batteries that can be charged hundreds of times. Search for "coin battery charger" and make sure the plug is USB or says U.S. Plug.

Keep in mind they charge an Eco Fee now.

You're almost at the point where you might as well buy a pack of Energizers or Duracells from Walmart they last longer and the Ecofee was already swallowed by producers.

Someone should make a best value CR list like they did the TP cost per sheet break down.

I've been using 30-40 LiCB CR2450 batteries in my SmartThings sensors throughout the home for a few years now. Had a few cells with 50-60% charge over that time but the rest have been 90-99% charged. Have gone through hundreds of these to date. Spend about $25 a year to replace for all my sensors with this brand.

I'd recommend them for the price.
