    Where can I get one of these? (laptop BIOS battery)

    Just had a elderly laptop of mine resetting it's date etc. and given its age I suspect it will need a new battery. It's a standard CR2023 but with a connector soldered to it (see pic below).

    If anyone knows a UK supplier of these please let me know.
    Oh, and the laptop is an Acer Aspire 6920!

    I'd be half tempted to make one using heat shink tubing and the original wiring.

    I was looking for a CR1225 battery yesterday with solder tabs for a laptop.

    Farnell sell a few coin cell batteries with solder tabs and sensible prices.

    I ended up removing one from a scrap laptop and using the original wiring and connector.
