Best Price and Excellent Quality
on January 8, 2008
I went to many stores, from Sharper Image to Best Buy to Circuit City to Radio Shack and a few online spots to find the CR2025 batteries for my clock radio remote and air conditioner remote. The stores either did not carry the exact battery type or wanted over $6 per battery. When I checked Amazon, the Energizer battery ECR2025 was available for less than $4 for two. I was concerned if ECR2025 was the same as CR2025; I took a chance, and they turned out to be the same, so the E probably just stands for Energizer. The batteries have been working fine because the remotes work fine. This was the best deal for this battery. Delivery was free because I bought the batteries along with something else from Amazon. Amazon seems to carry many things with excellent prices, and the free delivery is great.
The above review was from a late 2007 purchase, which is now outdated. One of the two batteries I bought finally stopped working (Energizer ECR2025 lasted 6.5 years), so I came back to find it again. However, I noticed that the product has since changed on the website, and Amazon is no longer the seller. Instead the new page sells various batteries instead of just the one I bought. The new reviews are no longer "Verified Purchases" (which often means they are fake reviews if not "verified"), so I would be careful to check each retailer before you buy a battery here. Read the individual reviews of the retailer (by clicking on the retailer's name) instead of the product page of Amazon. Look for companies with 98-100% positive 5 star ratings only. Otherwise, you may find yourself buying old/used batteries. You should also do a general search on Amazon for your battery to see if other product pages will offer you cheaper prices and better quality retailers. Again, also check retailer reviews instead of just the product reviews (and always check if a product review is "Verified Purchase" next to the reviewer name to make sure it is a REAL review).
