Are Coin Batteries Interchangeable?
Some coin batteries are not interchangeable. Depending on the part number or cell designation the size may vary, meaning the diameter and thickness may be different. Although your device may be able to accommodate a larger size coin battery, keep in mind the capacity will also vary with the size. To be safe and to ensure optimal performance, use the battery specified by your devices manufacturer.
How Can I Make my Coin Battery Last?
The lifespan of a coin cell can vary depending on the application it is used in and the operating environment. To get the most out of your battery, ensure the battery is not exposed to extreme hot or cold temperatures. Exercise the battery by using the device periodically; avoid letting the device sit for long durations. Lastly, keep the coin battery and the contact terminals clean. A simple swipe with a cotton ball or q-tip will help remove any debris.
