These same batteries (from the same lot) have been in other synths, and I haven't seen any problems. But it might be good to move from these (cheep 'n' cheerful Renatas) to Energizers as a test, you're right.

It seems to be working perfectly, except that it keeps eating batteries. I put a holder for a CR2032 in there the first time around ('cause, frankly, they're easier to find than BR2325's), but after about two weeks or so the memory takes a dump 'cause the battery is dead. Apparently it's gone through a couple of batteries this way.
