Anybody know what the life of the 1/3N 3v battery is in the Crimson Trace laser vs. using (2)357 1.5 v. batteries?

I'm not sure Rich, but I would think that the 1/3n would have a higher amp/hour rating since a lot of capacity would be lost in the 357 battery's 2 cases....could be wrong, wouldn't be the first time and definitely won't be the last time.... :)

I called CT customer service and they told me both sets have a four hour run time and one isn't any better than the other.

Not to thread jack but I'm trying to convince my wife that I need a ct. My friend can get them for $89 from his dealer discount. Back on topic I was wondering the difference between the two batteries for when I convince my wife!

My gun dealer friend told me he can't buy them for $89. and can't understand how any dealer can. I bought mine from him for $140.00, which is below what he normally sells them for, but above his cost.
I had to justify the expense to my wife and I told her that if someone breaks in at 3am, I won't turn the lights on and find my glasses, so either the laser or we're dead. That convinced her.
As for batteries, 1/3n battery can be had at Batteries Plus for about $4.25.

I don't know about the LCP CT but the CT I installed on my 1911 in '94 or so is still working fine. Never had to re-zero or change the battery. Probably should change the battery just to be on the safe side.....but it does have back up sights on the slide.... ;D M1911

I got the free batteries for life deal with mine so I'll simply call every year and get a new one just to be sure.

I got a CT two months ago and had about a half hours use on the battery. It started losing brightness today, so I called them and they said the battery must have been an old one. They are sending me replacements, along with the yearly replacements, so I'll have a back-up set.

Same thing happened with me, with the dimming after a short period of use. Called CT up and they sent me new ones, really quickly. Great company

From what I understand the single 3n battery would have a longer lifespan than the two 357 batteries if you compare them by mAh specs.


357 Energizer Silver Oxide Button Cell Battery is 1.55 V and has a capacity of 150 mAh.
EVR-2L76BP (3n) Energizer Lithium Battery is 3 V and has a capacity of 190 mAh.

I've had mine almost a year. I'm still on the original no name batteries that came with it. I've used it for just under 900 rounds. Now, I can't imagine having an LCP without a CT on it.
