Watch Batteries

New postby John Arrowood » Thu Mar 28, 2013 3:59 pm

Next time you're near a Dollar Tree Store (everything is a dollar) check out their watch batteries. They have 357 and 389/390 batteries four in a bubble pack for $1.00. Some stores may have fewer sizes and some may have more. They are labeled Sumbeam.

Hi John we have them here too as well the Sunbeam brand. The watch batteries for a buck a re a great buy, any other watch repair place is at least 10 dollars each here.

As long as they are of reasonable quality.
I have been caught out with cheap batteries before.
Bought a pack of 50.
After about 12 months some went flat and started to swell in the packet before they were even unwrapped.

The ones I used also did not last very long.

Ended up binning the lot.
Put me of the unknown makes

I bought the sunbeam brand of batteries from the dollar store and put them in my solar lights outside, they are still working. I do agree about some cheap brands, they can leak not long after new.
