Are CR2025 and CR2032 Interchangeable?

Wondering if CR2025 and CR2032 batteries can be swapped out? Let's highlight this common question to keep your devices powered without a hitch.

  1. Physical Dimensions Size Matters: CR2025 and CR2032 have different physical dimensions. Thickness Distinction: CR2025 is thinner than CR2032.

  2. Voltage Output Voltage Variation: Both batteries provide 3 volts. Stable Performance: Interchanging won't affect voltage output, ensuring stability.

  3. Capacity Consideration mAh Rating: CR2032 typically has higher capacity than CR2025. Longevity Difference: CR2032 lasts longer due to higher capacity.

  4. Device Compatibility Check Your Device: Verify your device's battery requirements. CR2025 Compatibility: Best for low-drain devices. CR2032 Compatibility: Suitable for devices with higher power demands.

In a pinch, you can substitute CR2025 for CR2032 and vice versa. However, ensure compatibility with your device's specifications for optimal performance. Read more about the difference between CR2025 and CR2032 here:
