A friendly reminder that you needn’t hold off completing that coin cell powered project – Vilxes shares this technique for going without those somewhat costly clips – CR2032 battery adapter

    That’s one for the “I shoulda thought of that” file.


    Hm, no old motherboards to get clips off?


    No old motherboard to get clips off?

    Nice idea, but coin cell battery holders can be gotten off of old motherboards. I guess in a pinch, if you had no old motherboard, you could use this. Also, for 6 volts, you can stack two CR2016’s. Just make sure the contacts are tapered so the second cell isn’t shorted out.

    Will use that one. But I also need to find a way to make a holder for three stacked 1.5v button cells.
