Is your watch no longer ticking or reliably tracking the time? Are your small electronic devices no longer functioning? These problems often indicate that it's time to replace the battery powering your watch or gadget. CVS makes it simple to purchase watch and electronics batteries with a diverse assortment of products that you can shop online. You can make your purchase securely and have your order shipped right to your door.
Most watches use button cell batteries, which are small and round. This type of battery is also the power source for many cameras, calculators, medical devices, and other small electronics. Button cell batteries come in a number of different sizes, so it is important that you purchase the right one for your watch or gadget. Often, the battery size is etched into the back of watches or on the battery door of electronics. If you can't find the information on the outside of your item, you can consult your owner's manual or open the watch or device, remove the battery, and check the numbers printed on it.
Depending on the size that you require, you may have the option to choose from different types of watch batteries. Silver oxide batteries are preferred by many people because they are an inexpensive option. Lithium batteries are more costly but often last for longer than silver oxide options. As a result, they are particularly popular for electronics as well as for digital and smart watches.
As you shop for batteries, you will often have the option to choose from packages of differing quantities. For items that require frequent battery replacements, purchasing more than one watch or electronic battery at a time allows you to stock up with ease. Keep in mind that batteries do expire, so you don't want to overbuy.
To ensure best results from batteries, it is important to store them properly. Batteries should typically be kept in a cool, dry area separate from flammable items. It is not necessary to refrigerate or freeze batteries. If you plan to change the batteries in your watch or electronic device on your own, carefully read the instructions before performing the task to lower the risk of accidental damage due to handling or loading the battery incorrectly. For some watches, you may need to purchase special tools to remove the back and access the battery.
