Default Where to purchase CR 1632 battery

Both of my key FOB's indicate "Low Battery"

I have been to Walgreens, CVS, Radio Shack, Wal-Mart, Target, Pep Boys, Ace Hardware and Amazon.com.

No one but Amazon has the battery in stock for $7.99 plus $5.99 shipping.

Is there some place that has these batteries at a reasonable price?

Why are they so hard to find?

I am getting tired of wasting my time trying to locate a $4.00 battery.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

I replaced our two batteries, at different times, at Radio Shack. That battery is a regularly stocked item. Can't remember the price but something like $4.99 or $7.99 (no more than this).

I found them at the local Walmart. I keep a spare in the glove box in an envelope with the registration and proof of insurance.

no experience dealing with them but for $3.50 shipped for 5, I'll give it a shot.

(also Frys has them for 1.50 each. just make sure they have them in stock)

I ordered here thursday last week, came tuesday this week.

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...YOZFM&v=glance

5 for $1.50 + $2.00 shipping. I left the extras in my glove compartment in case. Worked perfectly. Now to figure out how to snap back that cover on the door handle since I had to get in with the mechanical key.

Another vote for Bob!

First place I check when I need batteries. Been buying there for years with no problems -- excellent service, fresh batteries.
