History #

The CR2016 battery is a small, flat, round lithium coin cell battery. It is a type of non-rechargeable primary battery, meaning it cannot be recharged after it has been used. The CR2016 battery was first introduced in the early 1990s and has since become a popular choice for small electronic devices.

Typical Chemistry #

The CR2016 battery is a lithium-based battery, meaning it contains a lithium anode and a cathode made of a combination of manganese dioxide and carbon. The electrolyte is a lithium-based salt solution. This combination of materials gives the CR2016 battery a high energy density, meaning it can store a lot of energy in a small package.

Typical Use #

The CR2016 battery is commonly used in small electronic devices such as watches, calculators, and remote controls. It is also used in medical devices, such as hearing aids, and in some toys.

Design #

The CR2016 battery is a small, flat, round battery. It measures 20mm in diameter and 1.6mm in thickness. It has two metal contacts on the top and bottom, which are used to connect the battery to the device it powers. The battery is encased in a plastic shell, which helps protect it from damage and keeps it from short-circuiting. The CR2016 battery has a capacity of around 160 mAh, which is enough to power a device for several hours.
