KEY FOB BATTERY REPLACEMENT TIP

4 posts in this topic

  • The other day my key fob was being difficult transmitting to the Smart receiver. As it turned out the battery was dying. After searching around for the replacement type I found an alternative type the CR1220. Identical in size, except for a slight variation in thickness, but doable. Apparently the only difference I could find was that the CR1225 is 50 mAh vs the alternative 35 mAh. A small difference when comparing availability and price. I picked up 2 of them in a pack for $1.29 from my local dollar store. At .65 cents each I thought it was a good buy. I stuck the additional battery in my wallet. So in case your in a jamb and didn't know of an alternative battery this is it!

  • I'm sure there are better deals on ebay or other online stores but when your in a jam this is useful to know.  

 

 

Another gift Idea from me to you. Happy holidays

Just checked my key fob batteries. Found one has the 1220 whilst the other two have the 1225. I can only guess I fitted wrong battery by mistake. Has worked fine though.
