Things that plague me

Batteries.

I have several devices that require those CR2032 coin button batteries.

I have a tiny flashlight that takes those LR41 watch batteries.

I *hate* dealing with packaging and shipping. In other words, I would be satisfied if I bought packages of both battery types and they showed up in a single shipment.

Where should I shop? Or do I just eBay and deal with the nuisance?

batteries
I much prefer shopping at brick-and-mortar stores, due, in part, to the huge amount of waste generated in the packaging.

I understand you don't have a lot of time for running around shopping for small items. However, I *do* have time for such things, and I think the batteries can be obtained at the local Bartell's.

How many do you need? I can buy them for you and mail them in re-used packaging.

Love,
dad

wrap those things up in duct tape when they're done. little kids, dogs, cats eat them and it destroys their heart #thingsIlearnfromterrifyingtelevisionshows

Try Jameco, an electronics dealer. For example, 2032's. They'll sell them to you in bulk. They don't carry the LR41's though.

Looks like Amazon can help you as well; both sizes seem to be sold in packages of fives and tens. For something that small, they should be sent in a small box or a padded envelope.

You beat me to it. Allelectronics.com might also be a good source.

Note that cheap batteries are not infrequently poor batteries.
