Probably not strictly speaking a cycling question but does anybody know where I can buy 2032 disc batteries in Dublin at a reasonable price? I use them in my heart rate strap and in a couple of rear lights! I can get them in Halfords but they are ridiculously expensive!

About 3 euro each in a chemist

or

Buy 20 for 3 Euro! I get them from DX, they are AOK.

They are the most common of that type of battery, and most electrical retailers have them. I've picked them up at DID and Boots - can't remember them being particularly expensive at either

Argos have them for €8.99 for 6

EDIT - but jimm beat me to it ...

Pretty good value also available from 7dayshop, at £2.39 for 10. That's where I get mine.

€2 shop usually have a selection of batteries (about 20) on a card for €2. The one on abbey St does anyway.

I'd second the dealextreme option, only downside is that shipping is a bit slow. I've got a pack of them (use them for my HRM, cadence sensor, some knog lights) about 2 years ago and am only half way through them.

Any of the euro shops should have them. I get mine in the ones on Camden St in Dublin. They're very cheap.

Hardware shops. My local shop in phibsboro sells them for a euro each.

Went for the Argus option (handiest to get to!). Many thanks for all the suggestions!

I bought a card of 10 of them in my local Euro2 store. I've had the current battery in my heart strap about a year now, so they're no worse than the ones you'd buy in Halfords.

Going at this rate, my athletics career will probably be well finished long before I use the last one
