Those "coin batteries" are typically 2025's or 2032's, and are quite
common. In the US, Wal*Mart carries them. Elsewhere, try the local
Wal*Mart equivalent, e.g. Tesco, or Radio Shack, or the local
parts store should have some. Some are lithium, some are alkaline,
really doesn't matter, they are fairly cheap either way. I keep
hand, not only do my computers use them, but the car "zapper"
locker/unlocker uses them, and so does my blood sugar test meter.
I would be very surprised if the BIOS battery is alkaline. Alkaline
batteries do have a characteristic that the voltage gradually drops
as the battery dies; on the other hand Li batteries usually hold
their voltage until they die at which point the voltage drops to near
They are available both ways.
