Not a super technical question but, I would like to know which batteries you guys prefer for this application.

 

I went to Walmart for a CR2016 replacement.  I was happy to see that they had a two pack for 4.64 including tax, but when I was leaving I thought this appeared to be a cheap battery.  I then stopped at my local pharmacy and saw that they had this same thing in Duracell, which is a brand I like.  So I did a search but could not find a good review on these.  Energizer and Duracell seemed to be some of the best for other AA type batteries and such depending on which size you needed, they varied.  Most you guys probably value what you put in your pc's so what is the consensus for this application?

 

Thanks, pcpunk 

Love me some B.C.com

Even cheap ones will last for years as the current draw is tiny. Not much difference, except the Duracell or Energizer will be maintaining the clock years after it goes on the scrap heap.
