Duracell CR123A Batteries

I need to replace the Duracell CR123A battery in my glass break sensor. This is the original battery from when I purchased the system in April 2018. Can anybody tell me where you get your batteries? I see SS has them for $4.99 each. I have 10 devices that take the CR123A battery. Since one of my devices is notifying me that it has a low battery, I am assuming that they other nine will need replacing soon. Does SS CR123A batteries come in a factory sealed package and what is the expiration date you are seeing on these batteries. Amazon has these batteries but it is hit and miss regarding the quality/expiration date. Thanks in advance.

I buy mine from Amazon.  I just make sure they are sold and shipped by Amazon.  No issues so far.

I get Pansonic CR123s (which used to be required to maintain the UL listing for the smoke detector) from batteryjunction.com for $1.50 each.  For other batteries, I've had good results from eBay from listings with 99+ positive ratings and which specify the expiration date.

I've been buying these from Amazon for a couple years now and have had no issues at all.  42 cents a battery.  I have a ton of items besides SS that use them so buying in Bulk is needed.

The glass breaks seem to last the least amount of time, but they are by no means an indicator of other sensors needing new batteries.
