I just ran across a very interesting bit of information while stumbling about in the Series of Tubes. If you use type 394 button-cell batteries you can buy them individually for anywhere from a buck or so up to about $5, or you can buy a pair of Energizer A23 batteries:


And open them up. Inside each you'll find a stack of eight 394 batteries.

As the linked video indicates, the pair of A23 batteries will yield 16 of the 394s, and costs less than $2.

Good luck in finding the Energizer A-23 in a store somewhere. I've looked in electronic stores such as Radio Shack, Best Buy, etc. They don't have them. I even went to Energizer's web site. They say you can purchase them at Target Stores, Walmart and Walgreens. I tried all those stores also. They don't seem to be a shelf item. (At least here in the Great Lakes area)

Anything here?

Thanks for the reply, Stijloor. I figured I could order them somewhere online. I was just hoping to pick them up at a store when I was there. I guess they must not be a big seller in this area, so they just don't stock them.
