Do any of the main national wholesalers sell 3.6v batteries over the counter?

I need 2 for a job asap, can order them online tonight but hoping I can pick some up in the morning.

Yes cheers, I've ordered some online now, will try local in the morning and hopefully get some.. They're for the bump sensor on an electric garage door.

No, you're not helping but I do welcome and appreciate your input.
The type I have are 3.6v, also used for making up batteries for drills, etc.
What are the type you have used for?

Yes it’s definitely a size AA battery.
The 18650s are physically a lot larger

Depends on what's in 'em. Alkaline are 1.5V but my rechargeable NiMh are 1.2V. Lithium can be 3.6V.

It is usually 18650s in lithium tool batteries I understand though.
 
18650 cells are the workhorse of most lithium battery powered devices... laptops, drills etc etc... the AA lithium cells that I have are 14500's. As they are AA size, but with a nominal voltage of 3.7v you have to be careful where you put them...

The missus might be in for a nice surprise though with a certain accidental battery upgrade
