I bought a sleeve of 10 for $16 on Amazon. Play 4 times a week and the battery has lasted a few months and still going strong.

Geaux Gators-why worry about finding them locally? They are way more expensive in stores.  Just get them online was a great suggestion which you poo pooed for some reason.

No, I was kidding about the fact I was complaining about something locally when I could easily get it online.

Thought the lols would have given that away
hmm, I was responding to post #12 and a few others. No lol's to be found.  

Bottom line these things are stupidly priced in stores. Or maybe it's just the name brands that are priced out of line. So either pay too much locally or buy online.  

LOL!  :)

Thank you all who replied to my posts.  It was much appreciated.  If all else fails, I might sell my RF on craigslist and then just give the NX7 pro a try.  
Only thing that worries me about the NX7 pro is that it's normal operating range is 400 yards, and then it's within 1yd only from 125yds and in.  Meaning that a longer iron could roll right off the back of a green if it was off by 5 yds.  I don't know though, I've never used one yet.  Has anyone else had any good/bad feedback about the NX7 pro?

For example the Bushnell X2 pro operating range is 500+ yds I think, and the accuracy from 125yds and in is within half a yard.

Why couldn't they just make a rangefinder that uses 2 AA batteries setup in series(?) to increase the voltage from 1.5 (per battery) to  3v total.  Life would be so much easier...And I could live with rechargeable AA's.

Here is comparison info on popular rangefinders.  I have the Bushnell V4 which is rated for 1000 yards (!) and 400 yards for flags with 1 yard accuracy. After using mine all year the unit just works with no issues - quick, accurate, and reliable. Still on original battery and I play at least twice a week.

https://lasergolfrangefinder.com/
Too bad they didn't review the NX7 Pro.  I've read a few threads that had good reviews.  That site is a little awkward.  For example it mentions the TecTecTec is water resistant in the pros, but in the cons it says a lack of water resistance.  Kind of confusing.  I think I'm going to stick with mine a little while longer and try those rechargeable batteries others have mentioned good results with.  I'm sure I made the mistake with the bulk purchase of batteries that I got.  Other folks are mentioning the other brands that are $1 a battery, but I'm going to try rechargeable.  Recharge both and bring both.  If it doesn't  work well for the first 30 days, it's going to get returned and I guess I'll have to eat the cost of more expensive alkaline batteries.

Here is where I "poo poo'd" online purchasing

we have had a TON of rain lately (I'm not complaining as we have been in a serious drought for like 8 months) but my cart was not under the awning.   my bag got SOAKED.  I had 6 brand new CR2 batteries in there.   when I cleaned out my bag, I didn't check my "cooler" pocket.  my "valuables" bag got wet, and the only thing in it?  the batteries.  fast forward like a week or so (remember I live in NCFL) my battery dies, and I am all smart and have backup batteries... uh no.. they are completely corroded (NCFL summer humidity and heat)
So my only choice... go to get some locally...
WalMart, out..
Lowes.. 10 bucks each, and they only have 2

A couple years back I found an eBay vendor who sells them in 5-packs where each battery is individually sealed in a poly shrink-wrap and the set of five is all part of one strip of poly-bag material. It was the perfect packaging, hermetically sealed but not bulky at all.

Long story but I gave my spare strip of those away and don't see them for sale any more. It was great though.

Is there a Target in your area? They are still $7.00 for a pair and that's been the price for well over a year in the D.C. area.

Last time I purchased these they were $34 + taxes.   $20 a battery.   After two years and four batteries I had to get out of the disposable battery business.   I agree with the AA battery proposal. Really like my Bushnell range finder so at least I've got that going for me : )

In US funds the batteries might be even more expensive, given exchange, shipping and customs fees.   I'd have to pay you to keep them : )

I do appreciate the kind gesture.

Anyone have issues with the Bushnell V4 battery INDICATOR?

I have run out of juice with all 3 bars illuminated. I now just change the battery out every so often.
