Hi folks,

I need some CR1616 batterys for a cycle computer, but the last lot i bought off Ebay hardly lasted at all, they were Duracell ones and in date, but only lasted a few weeks at a time. I ended up buying one in tesco that lasted a year, so i know the computer is ok.

any recommendations of brands or online stores?

Mark

The battery that came in a Mitutoyo caliper lasted 2 years, the caliper was old when I got it, it was almost always left on so the battery certainly lasted more then 2 years.
The ebay batteries may have been cheap but some of them lasted about a month.
I am told you should buy Renata batteries, but having bought a card of about a hundred elcheapo batteries I am batteried up for a good few years.
