Quarq and batteries

Received this message from SRAM today about Quarq Power Meters and thought others would like to read. I have had these issues and changed to Energizer CR2032 since. Ride On!

Battery compatibility notice
The newest Duracell CR2032 batteries are not compatible with SRAM and Quarq power meters.

Use of a Duracell battery with a bitter coating ring will result in symptoms similar to a drained or low battery.

These could include:

  • No wake or pairing possible
  • Loss of combined cadence and power for extended periods
  • No LED function
