    Where to find a flat, round, small battery (for electronic weighing scales)?

    Where can I find a small, flat, round battery for my electronic weighing scales? I've tried my local Wellcome but they don't seem to stock them. The battery also says '3V' on it. Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

    Some stationary shops sell them too. Take the battery with you, the voltage alone isn't enough (there is usuall a CR number). If everything else fails, go to Sham Shui Po, MTR exit Apliu Street. Lots of shops there selling these batteries.

    Ap Liu Street in SSP. Most of the hardware stores on Thompson Rd. in Wan Chai (heading east from MTR station)

    And lots of little kiosks around the streets in most areas selling light bulbs, batteries etc.
