Good deal on batteries

I found some Duracell CR1/3N batteries on eBay, item # 230261568682 .
One 3V lithium cell is commonly used to replace two 1.5V 76/44/357 silver cells.
$1.00 for one 3V cell instead of ~$6.00 for two 1.5V cells is a pretty good deal, no?

Thanks Chris. That's about half of what I paid for new batteries for my MX the other day.

FWIW these will work well in many '70's and '80's cameras, not just Pentax.

I thank you for passing this along, Chris. Batteries are too expensive these days...and so are gasoline and diesel fuel...and food, too.

not sure if these are the ones you need, but this works for all my pentax cameras (k1000, me super, me, program plus, super program. The one's i've used and tested, they seem to be fully charged and haven't had any problems thus far.

Alkalines will work, but they don't last as long and their output is not as stable as silver oxides.

Eric says the lithiums are okay to use with any Pentax they fit.

Chris I don't know if you got the one you ordered but I just got the pack that I ordered. They are Duracel, on the standard card like you see in all the stores, labeled Photo and they show an expiration of Mar 2017. It's a good buy, even with shipping.

Yes, just as stated in the description. I had mine within two days of purchase. I may be doing business with her again...
