Here's the link

Thought SOMEONE here would be interested :p

I'll also quote a few responses to this deal here :p

That's so excessive and unnecessary for 99.99% (or more) of the population. It's things like this that make me love the internet... so much. If I weren't currently unemployed I'd have to buy these just on principle.

In for 2. Just because I can.

Or at least, that's what I would be saying, if I weren't clown-ass broke...Which I most definitely am.

If you need slightly less, here's a 50 pack for $5.00 bucks..

At 1.5 volts each, you could wire them all together and have a 15,000 volt... pile of batteries?

I was almost going to buy, but then thought about how many I'd ever need in my lifetime. I could probably do better by just buying them for $5 for 50. Sure, that's 10x the price (at 10 cents each), but who the hell will use 10,000 batteries, even for throwies? Even storing it is a pain.

Obviously the regular price is ridiculously off. I'd take 1000 for $10, and I'm sure others would too. Perhaps a GB with ten buyers, maybe $15 a piece. I would probably be in.

Yeah, I saw somewhere else that their quote price is way off but I can't remember the exact figures. Even so, this is quite a deal.

That's actually a good idea. A group buy would be pretty awesome, and for some reason I would like to see this deal get used xD

Hehe, you could just wire them all together and have a 15,000 volt... pile of batteries?

I would be in $10 for 1000. Why not? Hell just send me 500 for $10. That is still 2 cents each.

I believe you mean 1k and 500. But yes, I don't personally feel like organizing it, but if someone else wishes to, by all means do so.

OK so I am thinking about ordering these just for the hell of it.
Has anybody ordered from this place before. What are the chances of getting 10,000 dead batteries.

Shipping is only $5.99

Subtotal: $99.99
Shipping: $5.99
Tax: $0.00
Total: $105.98

If I could find 4 people interested in 2000 I would order. Would not want to mess with shipping smaller quantities.

Well I personally would never order more than 1,000. Especially knowing I would probably never use more than 100. But, I would buy 1k if you do wish to send that "small" of quantity :)

Something is fishy. The weight of 10,000 button cells alone would cost $50 to ship. I saw some on DX, and the people say most are less than half charged. These are obviously company rejects. I wouldnt throw any money away on these. They are cheap enough on DX, and you'll get more than you'll use in a year.

Just my .02
