The only things in life that are certain are death, taxes and the fact that you will always run out of batteries. Crimson Trace doesn’t agree, and has a promotion right now where they will send you a fresh set of batteries once a year, EVERY year, for life. Or until they get bought out and are forced to stop by the new parent company. Details after the jump…

If you’ve bought, or are planning on buying, a Crimson Trace laser sight, we’d like to say “thank you”.  To further express our appreciation, we’ll give you a free set of batteries every year.  Better yet, we’ll deliver them right to your house*.

This unique program allows (1) set of batteries per calendar year per product and is valid for all Crimson Trace products and battery types**.

  1. I just ordered some CT sights for my G26. I saw the “free batteries” promo but really didn’t look closely at it. This is good news.

  2. Pretty neat. I’m not really sold on the need for lasers for my guns, but they seem like a good company with some innovative products.

  3. You can’t beat that.
    I bought a gun with Crimson Trace over two years ago, and of course the batteries are just fine.
    Consider it is rare that they are never used, except for some practice.
    It would seem responsible to replace periodically, maybe every three years, I dunno.
    I just have a problem taking something I don’t need just because it’s free. I could send them a thank you note anyway.

  4. I purchased a crimson trace for my p3at about one year and six months ago, if I remember correctly. Enclosed in the packaging was product registration, with a section detailing the aformentioned offer. I have yet to receive confirmation of my registration, or my batteries. However, thanks for reminding me of this! It was my first laser for any of my firearms, and I must admit my batteries were VERY quickly drained by me, acting like an 8-yr old boy with a lighter. :). I shall contact crimson trace customer service asap.

  5. CT has the best customer service of any company that I’ve ever dealt with for the past ten years. I own several of their lasers and I only had a problem with the activation button on a set of two year old grips. I sent them the used set and they sent me a brand new set within two weeks. They make a great product and their CS is the best out there.

  6. Been there, done that. Only received one set of batteries for my multiple CT grips in the last 10-15 years.

  7. Can anyone tell me where to find the right serial #s? I have all the boxes and everything but can only find sku # and model #s. Thanks for any help provided.

  8. I have two crimson trace products. I really like them… but I must say. I registered both of them, as the card in the original packaging indicated, and then sent in a message that I needed my free battery for the year after I purchased the first one…. nothing… no response at all. So I went on ebay and purchased a bunch real cheap. Then the next year I sent in a message again … multiple times this time… and nothing again. So either you MUST call them to get your free battery… or it is just a scam. Why would they offer an on line service to request your battery and then not use it? disappointed enough that I might purchase a Viridian laser light combo instead of the new Railmaster from Crimson trace.

    • The fine print also sates “Excludes CR-123 and CR-2 batteries. Not valid on Rail Master products.” So, yeah, it’s bogus.

  9. I need free batteries for my LG-404 Kimber pistol lazier sight. My address is 310 North 1150 West, Hurricane, Utah 84737 phone # 702-497-4702.

    Thank you

  10. Called their “world class customer service center” only to be told we are only the answering service and the best we can do is leave a message for a return call and cannot tell you if it will be today or when. World class must have more than one meaning here. As a top level trained customer service specialist for both jaguar and Mercedes Benz I certainly see it as better than that! All I needed was a set of the promised free batteries in their promotion . Now I don’t know when or if I will receive a return call as promised! Hopefully they will come through soon . How have others found this , good or bad, ?post results for all to see.

  11. Ok rusty we all know that’s not your real name come clean on this site at least! I must admit to be fair that I did receive a return call 45minutes to an hour later and spoke to a very helpful lady who promised my replacement battery would be here , at my door, in three or four business days. I only have to wait a few days now, would still like to others experiences posted& be objective and fair.

  12. I brought a Ruger lcp 2 years and mailed the registration card in . I have try to use your free batteries offer last year and was told I wasn’t registered . I registered again by e-mail and was told I would to wait a year. I bought.a Ruger lcp last year mailed the card in same thing ! I see on your web site all you can do is register . Does the free battery offer really exist?

  13. I have 4 or 5 Crimson Trace sights and have been very pleased with them and the free batteries for life program. I would simply call in and provide my name and address, they would look up my records and send out all of the batteries that I needed for my sights. But now they have changed the process to get your batteries. You now have to go online and fill out a form for EACH product that you own, providing the following information for each: Product model #, Serial Number, Battery Type, Purchase date and Purchase location. I certainly do not have all of this information at my fingertips and may not be able to get some of it at all. It appears to me that Crimson Trace is trying to make it harder to get your free batteries so that they can get out of providing them.

  14. They contacted me 3 months ago and said my free battery was on the way. Today is 1/4/2021 and NO battery to date. What a joke.

  15. I have two pistols with CT laser grips. In October I contacted CT requesting new batteries for one pistol. Within a couple days they sent an email approving my order and provided a case number. The email states to expect delivery in 4 to 6 weeks. It’s now been almost 11 weeks and no batteries. I sent another email inquiring as to the status of my order. No response from them.
    CT makes a quality product. Why sour a customers thoughts about a product by offering a perk that is impossible to deliver.

  16. I have two CT products. In the past, before they were bought out, all it took was a simple phone call after registering my products to have my batteries shipped to me. Took about a week or so via USPS. Now with the new owners, I have to send them an email or go online every year and give make, model, and serial every time. This year it took over a month for them to respond to tell me that it will take 4 to 6 weeks to ship my batteries. Not the company they use to be. Looks to me that they want to get out of the free battery business.

  17. For the last couple of years, my batteries have arrived in the mail by the second week of January.

    I guess I’m special or something..
