cr2025 vs cr2016 for your transponder
« on: September 27, 2017, 10:57:31 pm »
I got the low battery message for the transponder today.
I happened to have CR2016 batteries on hand, they are the same size and voltage than the CR2025.
The 16 is  tad thinner, but it worked OK.

Just sharing in case somebody has same situation. Not sure about longevity. Will order the 2025, but for now, I'm good.

Why would you "order" a battery that every pharmacy, drug store, and retail outlet carries???

Also, the 2016 is the lowest maH (80-90) rated 20mm battery in the series, so it will not last as long as a 2025 which is 160-170 maH, or if you can fit it, and I do believe it does fit, a 2032 is rated at 240 maH

The 2016 may require bending the springy tabs a bit for reliable contact, as it is thinner...

I have used the 2032 Battery in my fob being it is what I had.  It fit a little tight because of the increased thickness but electrically worked fine.  Used that battery till it died abt 2 yrs later.

Why would I order? from ebay, $2.38, I get 5. Carry one on the bike for an emergency. Save the rest for the future, that is how I had the 2016 which is what my garage door opener uses. I also have spares for my watch :)

The number references the thickness. 2016 = 1.6mm, 2032 = 3.2mm. Thinner batteries of course have less capacity, but are otherwise interchangeable if it fits.
