Get what you pay for....,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Received these batteries to replace the ones in the bathroom scale. After several searches I ordered these as the price could not be beat. Waited patiently for them to come arrive from somewhere overseas. When they did arrive they looked as pictured; a sealed blister pack of 5 Maxell batteries.
Sadly not a single one of the batteries worked - they are stamped with "09" on every single battery (not sure if that is their expiration year but regardless they are duds.
Too bad as it seems like these got a large number of postive reviews.

Have you guys noticed that all the cheap 2032 batteries from all the various different "name brands" have essentially the same packaging? I strongly suspect that they are manufactured by the same people who simply print different "name brands" on the packages of the same bad quality batteries. The question I have is why the operation has not been shut down yet. How can it be so difficult to get a good quality 2032 battery in the year 2011! I ordered some Rayovac 2032 9/11 and now they say it will not be here until 11/11.

I ordered these batteries. They were mailed to me in a regular envelope and you could see 5 coin battery imprints through the envelope where they went through the USPS sorting machine. Needed 2 batteries.....tried 4.....none of them work.
I hope they either send another shipment of usable batteries or refund my Amazon account. I certainly don't expect to pay for
defective, non-usable products.

There are people work from home writing reviews, I wonder if these reviews were written by them.
A lot of times we cannot trust a lot of reviews. Amazon has to have a way to control those paid reviews -- some people work from home just writing reviews -- 10 cents a piece, everyday, they write tons of irresponsible ones-- deceiving buyers.
Once I bought a mower -- according to review -- a 70 year old woman said she could handle mower with no problem at all -- when we got the mower, it was so hard to manouver that no matter my 16 year athletic daughter or me or my husband all claim it was just very hard to handle -- when we returned the mower -- luckily -- i did not buy from Amazon -- we asked the store staff so a good review on the web while this thing is just so hard to operate? -- He said they probably wrote the review themselves.
Therefore-- i only trust positive reviews from buyers from amazon. Negative reviews can be anywhere -- since nobody will pay to get negative reviews.
