      Purchased two of these because I was not able to find them anywhere but B & H. I have an old Minolta Maxxum film camera that my son wanted to try out. These do the trick.

              We got a cool 1980's camera at an estate sale and needed a battery to see if it was even usable. B&H had the hard to find item, and got it to us in CA in really good time. And....the camera works! Thanks.

                This battery powers my Canon 1-V...I ordered two but it appears the second one will live in my camera bag for a long time. I still don't see any drain on the battery after several months.

                  After searching the least expensive battery, I found that B&H offered the this 2CR5 by General Brand. I was not sure what kind of battery would be sold under general brand. But, it was Panasonic Battery which has good and long reputation for their quality.

                      Just bought a Yashica T2 and wrongly assumed it would require CR2 batteries. Good thing B&H carries CR5! I've been using it for a few weeks now and it works great so far.

                          On a simple product like this you expect function without fuss. Right now that's what I receive with this product, so I am satisfied. I use this with the Canon EOS 3, a legendary 24x36 film camera which is a nice object. My biggest gripe with it: no EXIF data!

                                  so i read these are re-brand Panasonic, which sounds promissing enough to me. To my suprise, the batter & th packaging is all Panasonic, not even "general brand" packaging at all.

                                  Shipping from Canada is quick 3-5 days with the cheapest option, Love B&H!

                                    I foolishly forgot to purchase this when I placed my order for the Canon speedlite transmitter, I had to go to the local battery store and they were three times the price!

                                      This is a solid performer, and at a great price. Normally I would buy rechargeable but until I find a source this is my go to battery.
