[Walmart] $1.99 Energizer Max 9V 1 pack

Not a popular battery size these days but it is a great price for Energizer Max 9V if you have some older equipment that uses them

In my store the did not have them in the electronics department , but were up by the front checkouts

Hmm reminds me to check my fire alarms. This could be a good replacement battery, best to stick with big name brands.

At least several devices use 9V: smoke detectors and my handheld temperature gauge. Stocked up on several when it was on sale for $1. So glad I did, or else my smoke detector would be chirping at me all day while I try to work from home. Confused Face

Thanks for the heads-up OP!
Why settle for MSRP when you can wait and get it at a lower price? 😉

That was before the summer, iirc. So it wasn't recent. I had my suspicions when someone posted $1 Energizer 9V batteries at Walmart. My Walmart also had them on the shelf, but the pricing was wrong. Grabbed a few anyways to try my luck and sure enough, they rang up at $1 each. Their price check machine also confirmed them to be $1 each at the time.

Sorry, I can't find the thread now. Neutral Face

I just picked up a bunch for my smoke detectors. The shelf sign said $6, but I used the price check machine and it came up as $1.98. Thanks OP!

For someone who wants to shuck it for AAAA batteries, this in NOT the one you want to buy.

Also, Nofrills sells this battery for $2 on a daily basis, just one cent higher than Walmart.

Seriously, comparing batteries at Dollarama with Energizer max ? You'll probably go through 5 dollarama "sunbeam" or other brand, batteries by the time you need to replace an energizer max. coin cells for disposable toys, is fine, but not for anything serious.
And for life saving devices like smoke detectors, PLEASE don't cheap out on battery quality.

When someone asks me for help 'fixing their TV remote control' - I ask if they are using 'Dollar Store Batteries'. If so - I tell them to replace the batteries with 'real' ones (alkaline) - not 'Dollar Store' Ones. Usually that fixes the issue.

Thing is - some Dollar Store batteries are made of carbon / zinc ... not alkaline. Carbon/zinc has a much shorter 'shelf life' than alkaline and carbon/zinc does not have the same power capacity that alkaline batteries have.

Difference between carbon zinc and alkaline batteries


Some will say "But they are 'Name Brand Batteries' - like Sunbeam and Panasonic". One has to look past the 'name brand' and look at the battery composition.
