Default tiny button cell batteries LR41 needed

Hi

Can anybody tell me where I can buy these batteries cheaply? I saw one retailer selling 2 of these at 1.75 plus postage!

I'm after more like 20 for a fiver!

Ebay sellers have them cheap and if I want to get them in 100s from Hong Kong I can get them for 3 incl postage!

Ideally, I would like to buy them in the shops so does anybody know of any high street retailers who have these cheap?

LR41 is the same as AG3

Baby Bronagh is right - I am here looking at a pack of 40 batteries that cost 95p at my local hardware store and it includes 8 x AG3s.

It's headed 'Benross assorted batteries'

Hi and thanks for all the replies.

I went to the 99p shop and bought 2 cards of Hyundai assorted batteries which included 10 of the lr41 cells (well, equivalent) but the item I used them in (fake tealight candles) lit up extremely dull and dwindled within minutes. I have checked and the voltage is 1.5, exactly the same as the lr41 battery supplied originally so I would say that these batteries are very poor and would advise people not to buy them, however cheap they may be.

I wonder if they’d work any better in watches. A colleague of mine buys these but I’m not sure what the outcome was with them. I must ask the next time I see her.

Probably best to buy good quality batteries to be honest.

I've not had any problems with the Benross ones I posted about earlier.

I appear to have used 2 x AG13s, 2 x AG4s and a AG12 - everything working nicely
