Anyone know the specs for Gigabyte GA M56-S motherboard battery please?

 

There's nothing on the manual, but it may be a CR2032 3v lithium. I can't confirm that.

 

Their worse that useless website just says Replace the battery with an equivalent one. Danger of explosion if the battery is replaced with
an incorrect model.

 

Then they want you run through hoops before you get to ask a simple question.  Grrrr....

Take a photo or pull it out and find one in the store of identical thickness and replace it how the existing one is installed.

 

It's the polarity you have to ensure you get correct.

 

Size/thickness not such a problem. Replace like for like by reproducing size.

 

2025 vs 2032 vs 2016 is generally around capacity and thickness. 

 

 

 

 

 

Source: replaced my own batteries a few times.

I take it the computer isn't with you to check? Looks likely to be a CR2032 (near the bottom of the FAQ)





Keep calm, and carry on posting.

I have only ever had 2032s on motherboards, the thinner ones 2025 expecially seem to be common in card sized remote controls.

2016 / 2025 / 2032 are all equivalent except for thickness, and by virtue, capacity.  Interchangeable in a lot of cases if they physically fit.

2016 will fall out of the holders, and you dont really want a battery rattling around inside a PC case.
