So my Aimpoint Comp ML failed the second month long battery test.

I have been to Best Buy, Radio Shack, Target, Walmart, the local watch store, Walgreens, Save On Drugs ... and none of them have the DL1/3N or the 2A76 equal. Radio Shack is suppose to carry it but they don't. I have a "spare" I can steal out of my one of my old cameras but I need to replace it.

Short of going on-line and getting one from 1-800-batteries.com any ideas? The nearest camera store is about a half hour drive ... looks like I'll have to make that trip.

Try another Radio Shack. They should have it.

Why would you leave it on, or are you doing a B test ?

I stocked up on mine at Radio Shack. I dont remember being thinking I was paying too much.

My Aimpoint is about five years old and is not CET. My local Radio Shack is pretty ghetto - if you don't want a cell phone or DirectTV you're out of luck there.

I buy batteries for my two M2's at a local Batteries Plus store. Whenever I go in there the guy asks me if the batteries are for a gunsight. They tell me that alot of wives come in there to buy batteries to send to their husbands that are deployed overseas. I put a fresh set in on 31 August, and have left them on "5" since then with no problems. Chris
