I have a bunch of water sensors that need them … I’ve been buying them from the local batteries plus but at $8-$9 per they are spendy since they only seem to last about 6 months. There are cheaper ones on Amazon but none of them get great reviews. Anyone have a good source, or a brand that is reliable from Amazon?

I figured I’d start a thread on good prices for batteries for things. I’ll start with the ones I’ve found, which are generally those the best price and good reviews. Please add any you find.
(all of these are Amazon Prime with prices of March 2016 unless otherwise noted)
CR123A Lithium Batteries
Tenergy Propel 40-Pack $44.49 ($1.11 ea)
Tenergy Propel 12-Pack $15.75 ($1.31 ea; purchase in late 2015 had expiration 2020)
Streamlight 85177 12-Pack $18.66 ($1.55 ea; no dates on packaging at all)
(I’ve bought both brands before; I initially thought the Tenergies I had were bad because my Aeon MultiSensor 6 kept eating the batteries every 3 days, but it turned out to be a bad sensor. The replacement sensor has run on the Tenergies for 2 months now and is still at 100%)
CR2 Lithium Batte…
hmm … don’t see anything about the 1/2AA, 3.6V size in there.
batteryjunction.com for batteries. I don’t use 1/2aa 3.6v but they have them.
Thanks giving them a shot … ordered two different brands, cost as much as 1 from the local place even after shipping. We’ll see if there is a difference between the two.
