Scope Batteries

Post by Rob Kovach on Tue Dec 18, 2012 11:59 pm

Ok everybody...the local Family Dollar was going out of business, and was selling 2025 batteries dirt cheap. They looked the same as the 2032's that I'm supposed to use, they are the same voltage, they fit, and they work. The only difference is they are a little thinner.

Does anyone know if it's ok to use the 2025's or is there going to be a problem?

These are Energizers. If they just run down fast but everything else is ok, I'll rock em. The 2032's I run now work for months!

The 2025s are thinner than a 2032, they may not make good contact under recoil and could cause you to recover only to find your dot is gone.

uhhhh that is a good point. They will probably work great until the first shot of rapid fire at Camp Perry....

Quality Lithium 2032's should run as high as $5 online. In store, like Walgreen's maybe $10 but in an Aimpoint that last's for ages so, buying a ton of cheap batteries probably costs more in frustration (IMO).

Best,
