    357 battery problem


    by chulian99 ·


    Hey, guys! I don’t know how the run time of silver oxide 357 size button cell batteries compare to LR44 button cell alkalines. (For instance, in a Pelican L1). Is there a time difference between silver oxide and alkaline? When I swapped out the LR44’s in my L1 for the 357’s, I saw a noticeable increase in brightness…but at $2.00 a pop for the 357’s against 50 cents for the LR44s, an increase in run-time would be nice, too!

      The reason why this type of battery is less known is that you rarely need to replace them, because they last a long time – so you don’t have to look for it often in the store. To give you an idea: A tiny Silver Oxide button cell will keep a watch running 24 hours per day for 3 to 5 years!
