Can't comment on these but probably same as ikea ones. In my key fob ikea ones lasted little over 6 months, way too short. I bought 15 pack Sony ones from Amazon and it's been over 2.5 years and still working fine in the fob

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.
I didn't even know rechargeable existed for these.

I used to buy cheap batteries on Amazon. They tend to last between 5 days to a few weeks. I never bought those cheap batteries again.

Don't do it, it's not wroth your hassle.

Yes. Cheap batteries not worth it, especially in critical applications. If you have the keyless remote on your car die and you're stuck, that is not fun! Try renata batteries. Very reliable.

Now I only use them for toys and such.
Anything more essential I've used batteries from this Amazon seller:
https://www.amazon.ca/s?me=A2NC6JI3R42I ... Q1WTGCTBG2

gotten watch batteries and cr2032 from there, and works great.
I also got 2PC Energizer CR2032 ECR2032 Coin Cell Battery 3V Lithium for the car keys. Highly recommend after having troubles with other batteries.

I use to make the mistake of buying cheap batteries like these online. Never again. Would rather spend the money and buy a name brand energizer from a retail store then these weak near expired batteries that drain fast. Pay the money for the real deal. You'll be happy you did. Eat one less McDonald's burger and there you go, you got the difference in $

Don't buy these cheap batteries for keyfobs. It's not worth the hassle as they might not be good enough.

I would go with energizers or duracell for things that you need reliability on. These are fine for digital scales or thermometers, low power stuff.

Get the Sony ones, they are good in my experience I use them for guitar tuners. The dollarama ones are trash

I just noticed them this week under "what's new" @ costco.ca
I use a bunch of these at Christmas time with some of my battery operated lights and remote control light fobs.

Just to charm in that I paid for Amazon Basic ones for about 10 for $7.32 last week.

They have expiry date of 03-2028.

I only go thru like 2 a year so this is probably fine.

I'm running my 2 fobs on Ikeas, about 1.5years now. Still working, no lowbatt notice yet.

The problem with nonames or knockoffs is that you can't trust them to still be good a year or so down the road.

I've purchased many third party batteries and the one thing that stands out is that the voltage is usually lower on the nonames or offbrands.
Recently, I bought a bunch of 2450's, and 2016's and they either couldn't turn on the device or had barely enough voltage to last.

It takes a bit of doing but you can get valid Sony and Maxell batteries at a good price.

Same, also noticed Costco started carrying these.

Will likely buy a pack when I see them in warehouse. No more crappy dollar store ones.

Yes, neither did I until I decided to Google Rechargeable CR2032. They are actually used in older motherboards on PC's to store all the settings!

I blew through the ENTIRE CR2032 Ikea pack in 6 months. Never again!
