    Awesome deal, thanks OP

  • used for hearing aids?

    • +3

      PC Motherboard CMOS batteries amongst other things.

    • +7

      Hearing aids generally use smaller batteries, these are more for car key batteries, garage remotes, etc.

    • Digimon and Pokewalker

    • Use them in some watches, in PCs, laptops & some gaming consoles.

    • +2

      Nah, too big I think. I buy them for our digital scales.

    • +1

      my car remote using this battery

  • +6

    isn't it better value to buy a card of these?

    • +4

      Yeah just get a bulk lot off ebay and then you always have them available when you need them too. It's something you don't think to buy in advance.

      • I get those eBay ones as well and have been. Just curious do you find some products they just don’t last at all or drains completely?
        Garage keys works fine, but like digital kitchen scales just drains the next day. Not sure if it’s the scales or the batteries

        • I haven't had that issue yet. Maybe a bad batch or bad brand? Not sure.

        • +1

          Some of the Panasonic ones on eBay are counterfeit… I received some last week :( thankfully the eBay seller refunded my money no questions asked

        • +3

          Depends if you have a moron brother who go's "Huh, new scales" picks up the instruction book from underneath them, thumbs through the instructions, then ferken leaves the instruction book on top of it to be weighed until it goes flat in the cupboard.

        • I'm over coin batteries - low capacity, bad for kids and non-rechargeable, would only buy scales if they take AAA batteries.

    • Yeah, and I get some of the smaller ones for kids toys too

      • yeah that's what I do as well

    • Yeah I buy them by the tray of 20 and pay about $0.90ea

    Bought 2 - thanks OP !

      Nice, I'm going to grab this while I continue to wait for my China delivered ones. Not familiar with that brand, do they last long?

      https://m.aliexpress.com/item/4000468043143.html

      $3.50 for 15 but I ordered mid-August and still waiting.

    • +1

      I just bought these the other day. Would've preferred this deal as I don't need that many. But always is the way with these deals

      • Always good to have spares and considering the way AusPost is I'm happy with Woolies, I grabbed some last week. Also seems ridiculous to get 1 CR2032 battery delivered…

        • seems ridiculous to get 1 CR2032 battery delivered…

          Yeah it does but hopefully Amazon will appropriately pack this so it'll just be the size of getting a letter delivered.

          Personally I think it's worse getting 1 noodle cup delivered.

          considering the way AusPost is

          Btw Amazon doesn't use AusPost anymore

          • +3

            @pennypincher98: My pair of CR123s came delivered overnight in the small amazon box, even though they would have fitted in a pouch.

            • +1

              @damion: This is what I don't get about Amazon lol. I get multiple packs of Mac n Cheese delivered in a small pouch/satchel but a microSD card comes in a medium sized box.

              • @pennypincher98: I guess maybe it depends on which items are automatically picked and packed by their robots?

          • @pennypincher98: No AusPost all? Surely Amazon use a variety of delivery partners.

            • +1

              @sween64: Recently Amazon has seemed to use their own fulfilment services which divide into zones and segments etc with a logic only Amazon could have.

              Eg my package was out for delivery from a town almost 30kms away (and came by 11am)

          • @pennypincher98:

            Btw Amazon doesn't use AusPost anymore

            Yes they do. I just got a packaged delivered today from Amazon using AusPost.

            If you live in an Amazon Flex delivery area then of course they will opt for that option. I do but still get occasional deliveries using AusPost.

            Eg my package was out for delivery from a town almost 30kms away (and came by 11am)

            Most likely from one Amazon warehouse to the one closest to you very early morning or night before before being picked up by an Amazon Flex driver in a more local Amazon warehouse before being driven to you along with the other 40 or so packages within either a 3 or 4 hour block.

            I am registered as an Amazon Flex driver.

            • +1

              @cute as ducks: Yeah was onboard for delivery at 5:30am and delivered around 10:30am. Seems an interesting but efficient way of doing things.

              Haven't got an AusPost Amazon delivery for a while now which I'm definitely glad of.

              • @pennypincher98: It's a nice and efficient streamlined system. If we move to the Amazon US model, we will soon have same day deliveries before a certain cut of time.

                Or maybe drone deliveries soon :0)

                • @cute as ducks: Same day delivery would be excellent if we could have it here, although admittedly requires a significant investment.

                  Or maybe drone deliveries soon :0)

                  Can't wait for a drone to pick up my package 30km away then run out of battery halfway through lol

        • Also seems ridiculous to get 1 CR2032 battery delivered…

          What about the millions of individual letters that AusPost delivers that can be emailed instead? At least you can't email a battery. :)

    • +15

      Not comparable and certainly not worth a neg.

      Most of the time you only need ONE battery and the price is really good for one battery with Prime

      Plus I would rather buy a Panasonic battery than a no-name Chevon

      • +2

        Agreed.

        I'd pop a Panasonic in my watch, but there's no way in hell I'm chucking a no-name in.

    • +1

      For a no-name brand, cheap batteries leak and have lower capacities.

    • Probably cheaper at the reject shop if you trust them.

    • +2

      6 pack for $5 at Woolies

      So I buy 6 for $5, replace a CMOS battery, and let the other 5 expire over the next 6 years in a drawer? :)

      $5 for 6 is a good deal if you're after 6.
      $1.25 delivered for 1 is a good deal if you only need 1.

      • if you only need one, a pack is NOT for you.
        OP said always need this, then a pack is much better.

        • Sure. I use quite a few so I buy them in packs myself. But the deal isn't just for the OP, it's for everyone. Not everyone needs 5 spares. Some people only need one cell every 3 years for their car remote. Cells have a shelf life so IMHO it makes more sense to buy 1 every 3 years than buy 6 and let the rest slowly degrade before using them.

          Outside of online forums, there are plenty of non-techy non-gadgety people who simply don't have gadgets that use CR2032 cells apart from maybe 1 or 2 remotes.

  • +5

    I got my supply from IKEA - $5 for 8 pack (~63¢ each)

    • +6

      Unfortunately they don't last very long. Especially evident in garage remotes. Have to replace way more often.

      • +1

        Agree, the IKEA ones are useless and hardly last at all, definitely do not buy them.

      • +3

        +1 I tried a pack and all had very short lifespan

    • +3

      According to this tester: https://prog.world/large-cr2032-battery-test/, they're great value.

  • +2

    I buy in bulk from AliExpress but last time I ordered was in August and they still haven't arrived. Ended up buying a 4 pack from Coles for $8 :(

    https://m.aliexpress.com/item/4000468043143.html

    I might grab a couple of these from Amazon as I'm down to my last one.

    • +1

      International shipping times have gone up significantly compared to pre-covid, due to shortage of containers, among other delays.

      Auspost delivery turnarounds are also very delayed atm if you're in Vic. The $5 for 6 at Woollies is probably your safest bet, if you need something soonish.

    • Ordered similar batteries from there and hasn't arrived after months either

  • +1

    these are used in airtags btw

  • -2

    I've found most things use CR2025 so check which one you need first

    • +4

      interesting, can't say I can remember the last item I found that uses 2025. car remote, garage door, bathroom scales, bbq electronic thermometer all use 2032 here.

      • VW keys use 2025, and I've got a Tile that uses 2016 which I've never encountered elsewhere!

        • maybe your VW key does, mine uses 2032.

    • +6

      I find 2025 rarer than 2032, but 2025 will usually fit in a 2032 holder, though not last quite as long (the first two digits mean 20mm diameter, the second two are the thickness so 32 us 3.2mm). I think I've even used 2016 in place is 2032 when I ran out.

      • Yeah, 2032 are definitely the most common. You can still find 2025 in retail stores. What about 2020 however?! Those are ridiculously hard to find,even online!

        • You should be able to use 2016 in place of 2020

          • @hashtagbargain: Yeah, sometimes yes, but not in these lcd drawing tablets due to their battery holder design. 😟

  • Perhaps I was just unlucky. But I threw out my last 2 panasonic 2032's without even bothering to open them. The 4 before that were all basically dead or near completely discharged (on shelf for about 2 years, well short of their stated 10 year shelf life). won't personally buy them again.

  • Widely used battery. Thanks for sharing 👍👍

  • I wonder if it's a genuine one, or 'panasonic' like most on AliExpress are. Have found that cheapies don't last very long, or have problems with cold temperature or certain types of equipment.

    • I wonder if that is what happened to me, fake Panasonics would explain the very short shelf life and rapid drain I got. I certainly didn't buy them on AliExpress, but maybe one of the local stores bought a stack on AliExpress. I had 12, I threw out a set of bathroom scales late last year as I thought they were faulty draining the batteries so fast, but by July this year each of the Panasonic's I opened and tested were basically already flat or very close too it, so much so I threw 4 out that I tested in a kitchen scale and then threw out the remaining two without even bothering to open. Wish I could remember which store I bought them at.

  • +1

    Wonder if this is gonna come in a massive box.

    • +1

      with a lots of air pockets……..

      • Amazon just uses brown paper nowadays. Only air pockets in the bubble-wrap pouches.

    • In my experience ordering single SD cards (similar size to the packaging of this battery) from Amazon, they just come in a padded envelope.

      • +1

        Yeah I was being largely facetious.

      • +3

        So, we were joking about it, but mine came in a box today that was about the size of a small shoe box.

  • +2

    these are required for most kitchen scales!

    • +8

      Thanks for weighing in

  • +2

    Bought the same from ebay 5 for 4.79 in Sept. Arrived within a week.

    https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/133173235503?hash=item1f01be4f2f...

    • Expiry date 2023.

  • Good deal for a single unit delivered. You never seem to have them handy when you need them and they tend to be in things which when they go, you really need it! (eg garage opener).

  • +2

    I always prefer to see a best before or expiry date for coin cell batteries. Ebay sellers are usually pretty good with this.

  • +1

    Possibly a dumb question;
    When you "subscribe and save" with Amazon, do you lock in that price. E.g. $1.13?

    Or are subsequent orders subject to price changes.
    Don't want to subscribe and "save" if my next order is going to be $10…. Would negate all my previous savings.

    • +5

      Subsequent orders are discounted from the price prevailing at that time. However, you do get a chance to cancel/ skip the order if you think the price is not attractive

  • +5

    If batteries were not horrible for the environment as a whole, getting a single one delivered then takes the cake!

    • +1

      will probably arrive in a medium sized box, too

  • You can only buy two right as it's all it allowed and when i try says none left

  • I need bulk deal :(

  • +3

    I'm getting $4 when at checkout for this, deal must be done

    • +1

      same for me. looks like I'm too late

  • Same here

  • Are the ones on aliexpress legit? See 10 15 pack Panasonic ones there

  • +1

    Great price for a decent brand. Although there may be cheaper options on, say, eBay, not all batteries are created equal.

  • For the CR2032 batteries, which one is a better brand - Panasonic or Hitachi Maxell?
