      The A23's that I've purchased have come in packs of 2, but perhaps a large hardware store would carry a larger package for less money.

    I buy these at Dollar Tree for a $1 so when they don't work anymore I throw them away. Batteries there are $1 too, why buy the batteries when you can get a new light for the same price.

      Veronica Ronnie Taylor Because you can buy something else pretty to put in your yard.....and if you buy 8 lights...you only have to buy 2 packs of batteries a year :)

    AA batteries at the Dollar Tree are usually a 4-pack for a dollar, so yeah, more like a quarter each to revitalize :)

    i have always used regular AA batteries in mine and they last a long time! does anyone remove them from their yard(s) when winter/snow/cold comes? i haven't before - just wondered if it would make them last a little longer.............

      Kari Samuel I'd guess if you live where you live, I'd probably consider taking them in. However, lighting to the house during the long dark winter nights might be even more important and

      I live north of Buffalo NY and I leave mine out all year. The reflection on the snow around the lite is very pretty. I have replaced some batteries but my older ones, without the new bright led lights, I have tossed when they quit.

    to tell what size of AAA batteries, measure across the width of the light if it's about 1.5 inches, it will take the small ones, if it's 2 inches or so it will take the regular dollar store AAA's, but what I don't understand, the ones inside new lights

    I live in Michigan and leave mine out all winter. I put them in pots of evergreen branches or tie them to my swags with ribbon or red twine. Nice to have when it gets dark so early.
