    Mate just had a 9v leak in his safe keypad terminals. So I had to solder in a new set sure easy job but not fun worried about pulling the terminals off.

    So anyways looking for a LONG life battery that can stay installed for years. Mine has key backup so it’s not to bad.

    I run energiser industrials he had some Chinese crud that came with safe years ago.

    Spot The Deliberate Error...

    Sneaky trick I do when I know the batteries are going to be fitted long-term is apart from not using cheap 'n cheerfuls is an appropriate smear of good contact grease on the terminals at each end. Even a dab of Vaseline if the contact grease isn't within in arm's reach.

    That way even if the battery does shit itself and start bleeding, what comes out usually won't attack the metal connectors...
