Few words to end

As said before, many of these button cell batteries are interchangeable. You need to look for a battery that is close to the original – in size and nominal capacity. Furthermore, in many cases, it all depends on how the battery case is designed. Sometimes you can’t install a battery other than the original size.

Before you decide to replace a button cell battery with a different size, we strongly recommend reading this button cell battery size chart.

For the CR1025 battery, equivalent take a look at this chart and find a battery with dimensions that fit the battery socket. This applies to other models as well. Equivalent battery models are those with dimensions that can be interchangeable. Each battery model in this chart has 3V output, and the only difference, besides dimensions, is nominal capacity. Nominal capacity only can make that battery last longer or shorter than it should. If the nominal capacity is lower than the original battery, it shall last shorter, and vice-versa.
