To answer my own question, no, the A544 is slightly larger to accomodate contacts at either end and a metal wrapping. However, this wrapping is very easily removed to reveal four standard LR44 cells which do fit, making the A544 an economical way to buy LR44 batteries.

I'm trying to replace a golden power 6v PX28G. Will A544 work?
Hi Joel, thank you for this great question, I would be happy to assist you. Regarding the A544 battery, this has a 3 year shelf life. There are two ways of detecting this, one take a look at the "copyright" date on the lower left of the package in the back, add 3 years to that. You can also see it etched on the body of the battery itself.
Please feel free to contact us with any additional questions or concerns.
While distribution often varies from store to store, our records indicate that the Energizer A544 can be found at a few of the national Hardware retailers as well as Sporting Goods. Unfortunately, this is a type that does not have mass distribution given that it is a very specialized battery for only certain devices.
