CR2032 batteries

I used to get my CR2032 at Dollarama. 3 for $1. (as opposed to $4 for 1 at big chain stores).

The local Dollarama hasn't had them in stock for a while, and the staff told me not to expect any in the near future.

has anyone seen them at their local dollarama lately ? If this is no longer available, where is the next best way to get CR2032s at an affordable price ?

However DX's shipping times have deteriorated somewhat. My last order took over a month to arrive.

Yeah, that kind of doesn't help if you need the batteries now.

Get them at The Source, might be a little extra, but add a $1 and get a 2 or 3 year warranty, where if it dies you get 2 free replacements. Well worth it imo.

You could always try one of the smaller mom & pop type dollar stores. Lord knows Dollarama isn't the only one in the business.

I know I saw them a couple weeks ago at the Westmount/Ottawa Dollarama in Kitchener -- guess I should pick some up if they are no longer carrying.

I don't think Princess Auto exists in Quebec.

As for the batteries, I used to pick them up at two places:

A. Dollar stores
B. Radio Shack

So considering radio shack was bought by Bell, have you thought of looking at "The Source"?

If you want to order them in bulk give this guy here a call. »www.yellowpages.ca/bus/O ··· 694.html He used to order them in bulk packs of 50 for me at $1.50 each. But I haven't needed them for awhile and that was a couple of years ago, I do know he will ship or used to. But that was a couple of years ago.

heh that's a rip-off... but I expect nothing less of them.

I recall that I also used to buy these at sears for around 3$.

A fast look only shows them on the sears.com website, not sears.ca though.

Addison Electronics probably has them for around $2 for 5 but it's not listed on their website. »www.addison-electronique.com/

Mountain Equipment Co-op according to their website sells them for $0.50 to 1.25 each in stores.

I bought a pair of CR-2016's from the Dollar Store for my watch, they lasted under 6 months. By contrast, the brand name $5 batteries I bought from Loblaws or Walmart lasted over 4 years.

Since then I've not bothered with knock-off button batteries from China.

...Although, knock on wood, the CR-2025's I bought from the Dollar Store are still working in my Roland SC-55 remote. Maybe because I rarely use it? (it's another one of my cool retro tech toys)

Do you have any other kinds of Dollar Stores in Quebec? I've never been there so I don't know, but perhaps "A Buck or Two?" is out that way and maybe they have those batteries in stock?

I'll check my local dollarama tommorrow though .

I know of a Tigre Géant , but by mid november, I won't be able to go there anymore (ferry closes for winter).

Dollarama is a Québec based chain (the Reitman stores started this). They are everywhere.

Addison is very far for me. If I do get there, I might buy a bunch. But for now, I guess the coop (MEC) is the most convenient assuming they can ship batteries.

As far as I am concerned, "Radio Shack" ceased to exist when Bell bought it. Store of last resort if I get desperate for something. And I am surprised that so few people know that the Source is really Bell Canada.

I also used to get them at Dollarama. I may drop in to Dollarama, after I have my tests done at the hospital, this Friday and see if they still have them. I just ordered them free at www.bayercare.ca , you have to have one of their Blood Glucose Meters. I have the Breeze 2 and it uses the CR2032. I also ordered some skins, test solution, and a wallet. All free and no shipment costs. Also, not a one time thing, free all the time. Now, I just have to call them for the free computer software and cable.

Pharmacies carry them, but I don't know the cost.

There's like a million dollar stores in Montreal that aren't dollarama.

GT Boutique!! On a side note, what are you doing with all of these batteries? It seems as though you are going through a lot of them to worry about 3 for $1...i've had my watch for 4 years now and the battery still is good....like the spot for used razorblades on a plane (from seinfeld)...I don't think you could shave on a plane anymore...but just curious.

I don't know about OP, but I go through a LOT of the 2032's - my calculator uses 4 of them, the remote for my fireplace fan uses one, the remote for my digital picture frame uses one, the remote for my car uses one, the button for my doorbell uses one, my little portable DMM uses 4, sheesh I'm sure I could think of other places around with them too - I buy them from here:
»www.monoprice.com/produc ··· format=2
in quantities of 10 for $6.60.

I throw them in any time I'm getting a monoprice order for other stuff.

Hey OP I see your in Pointe-Claire, do you know about Access Electronique in DDO? It's across from the Guzo near sources. It's a sister store to Addison I believe and have tons of junky cheap electronic stuff like Addison does. Pretty sure you can find your batteries here cheap.

»www.acceselectronique.ca ··· sins.php

No I'm not affiliated or working there! Just trying to help...
Hell most of the time I hate this place, staff is terrible, a lot of junk products etc BUT it's cheap and convenient for finding random stuff.

I've been using Access Electronique for years, their prices are very reasonable and they always have a good stuck of stuff. I try to stop in whenever I go to Montreal.

I use CR2032 for various things, including LED flashlights (especially in fall/winter when cycling always involves those due to early sunset).

And they are used in some calculators etc. (although ,my good old sharp pocket computer from 1984 uses CR2025s.) (It is great as a fancy calculator as it supports very long expresisons, parentheses, variables etc)

It isn't that I use those batteries in industrial quantities, it is just that I refuse to jump from 3 for $1 to $4 per battery. Ad if I am to buy mail order, then I might as well place bigger orders to last me the year.

Seriously though, some of those dollar store knockoffs are inferior.

IMNSHO, best to order from a proper electronics place and try for a quantity break on a more respected Japanese-founded brand.

I used to buy electronics parts, tools, and supplies from Gervais Electronics in Ottawa.

A wonderful privately owned store which is still operating !

There must be similar places like that in Montreal.

Actually, these Dollarama batteries don't appear to be knock-offs at all. They're called Sunbeam Mightycell, and they're from a Montreal company called L'image Home Products Inc, 1175 Place du Frère André. The batteries are made in China, and the packaging indicates they were specifically intended for Dollarama, even indicating the correct postal code for Dollarama's head offices.

I think my TI calculator used 2 of them back in the day, I miss that graphing calculator, unfortunately it got damaged in a move and the screen stopped working...it used to do brackets and stuff like nobody's business! y=2x+1 ...hilarious I kill myself.

Makes sense JF ...I just wondered if I was missing out on something as my flashlight uses the monster jam D batteries ...well wish you luck and it seems as though others have pitched it to help you out
