Im looking to buy a new battery for my transmitter. I had a shoot today and for some reason i was getting 1 flash out of maybe 20 clicks. Everything is fully charged but i think i left my transmitter on by accident. So im looking to see what and where i can get a pack of 5 or 10?

It might help to know where in the world you live.

I usually get mine at Radio Shack, but I'm sure there are E-Bay vendors.

BH lists the CR2430 as an accessory for the universal trigger kit, which looks to be the same one I got with mine.

I buy these from this ebay seller. Reliable seller and the batteries are excellent. No problems with battery life or shelf life.

I usually buy bulk-packed batteries through Digi-Key. Often, I pay as little as 10% of common retail prices and I am getting well known name-brand product.

I guess I need to order a bulk pack, but I wanted a couple of batteries quick before leaving town for a shoot, so I went to Radio Shack and bough a couple.
