Dead CR 2016 3V button battery

I recently bought a 2 battery pack for my remote. Upon installing the battery, it didn't work. I changed batteries, and the second one also didn't work. I thought something was wrong with my remote. I pulled out my voltmeter and checked the voltage on both batteries. 1.5V??? Further tests revealed that it maintained a solid 1.5v. I googled the battery and found quite a few people complaining about their "dead" batteries. I think the problem may be that 1.5 batteries were erroneously packaged as 3V. Beware!

I just realized that I could have stacked two batteries together to get 3v. However, since I already disposed of the batteries, I'll have to get new ones to see if they fit into the holder.

Thanks for the heads up Warren. The reverse packaging could be worse, sending 3V down a 1.5V circuit.

Cheers.
