What kind of battery is this

What kind of battery is this, or more to the point where can I get one. My garage door remote control stopped working so I opened it expecting a button type battery to be replaced but it was one I have never seen before. 8mm Dia x 28mm Long, a bit like an AAA but even smaller. It tests as very low so I assume that is the problem. It is very difficult to read the markings but it says alkaline 27A12V from what I can see, obviously not 27amp but the rest is unreadble. Any ideas please.

Like this ? According to Battery Station the size and output match.

Is it this one?

"it was one I have never seen before"

You asked the same question less than 2 years ago. Memory problems?

Well bumpkin won't get one at Maplins this time round.

Sounds exactly like my bell push battery.

Try a low tech solution - ask your local ironmonger, or even B&Q!

I damned sure if I asked a question a year and half ago, I would be very unlikely to remember.

I had indeed asked the same question 2yrs ago and yes I had forgotten.

I found an old, no longer used remote with the same battery so job done and thanks to those that tried to help.

It is almost word for word, I have seen it. Copy and Paste almost but I can assure you it wasn't. I was merely asking for some help to identify it as I did not recall posting the question before. Snide remarks relating to other peoples memory issues are less than helpful.

Indeed so.

No 'dought' [sic] someone will Google it for you again, in 18 months time.
