    Batteries used in G's...

    I have seen a couple of threads around about battery brands that people opt for.

    At my father's shop our lithium batteries are usually Sony or Maxell; Panasonic batteries we have less in watch use, more for cameras and such (CR123A etc) but they are fantastic also.

    In fact, Panasonic, and even GP Alkaline, batteries seem to fare better than Duracell based on personal and customer reviews in AA, AAA, AAAA, C and D format.

    Renata batteries we use more in Swiss movements and Maxell or Sony in Japanese; the fits seem to work better with the minor differences in structure for the watches within the markets producing movements that the batteries were manufactured for originally...

    We have found Renata, Sony and Maxell to be the best for our purposes...

    What do you use?

    I can buy maxell here for about $6 a pop, or no name from China off ebay for .10 each. I've had the expensive ones last less than a year, so I have too many watches to go with the expensive option. The exception is on a solar battery.

    Check the datasheets from each manufacturer and look at the mAh ratings.

    I saw a chart years ago on the Internet Panasonic and Maxell were the highest and Renata and Duracel were the lowest. Sony was low, Energizer was medium.
    SPROING!!!!

    (oops! Time for a new watch!)

    I have only used Maxell and Spron for my Japanese watches. Recently replaced my wife's Baby G battery, a Maxell CR1616.

    G-Shocks come originally with a Sony (rare) or a Maxwell (common) battery. I buy Maxell batteries in larger quantities. I rather do not buy brandless products from China. They might be cheaper, but you don't know if they are leak proof.
