SR cells are Silver Oxide based, have a higher energy density or capacity and are 1.55volts.
See the Notes page for more info.

Do not confuse with these other batteries listed as "317" LR55; LR68.
Do not confuse with the MT516 which is virtually the same size, is the same voltage but is rechargeable.
