My Yongnuo CTR-301P receiver needs CR2 batteries.

Are the ebay CR2 any good?

They are much cheaper than ones from department store.

I wouldn't buy a knockoff battery from eBay but if it's a name brand from a reputable seller I don't see any reason why not.

I actually found some Energizer CR2s at the local Meijer store. I think Meijer is local to the OH, MI, KY, IN area, but I'd assume that some local stores would have some.

This.. CR2s are fairly common batteries..

It's not rocket science, go buy a couple and have a spare or two..

how long does a charge last (as in being used) Vs Shelf Life.

Will it be flat if left in the receiver for a few weeks?

I just replaced my cr2's with an energizer ($22AUD) + 2 cheaper no name brand ($5AUD), The 23A was flat too, it was about $5 too for the trigger. I think the buttons get knocked in my bag, need to get a case fo r the transmitter i think.

I cut a piece of wooden dowel to the size just short of a CR2 battery, put a very small screw into each end being very careful that they don't touch in the middle, and attached a 2 AA battery enclosure from Radio Shack (external link) for $1.99. I velcro the battery pack to my receivers and I run my Yongnuo CTR-301P receivers using 2 AA Eneloops. Works like a champ.
