    Can i put a 2025 battery in DW 5000?

    Hi,

    I know that the DW 5000 use the 2016 battery.
    Can I put a 2025 or even better a 2032 battery in the watch? Has anybody tried it? I think it will make the battery last forever.

    All input appreciated.

    Chris

    A dw5000 has a 240 module which takes a 2320 battery. A 2016 battery is too small which could allow it to shift around if the watch was banged. This will reset the time back to 12:00 as if you removed the battery. I think the 2025 and 2032 will be smaller in diameter and also too thick. They might distort the hold down clip or crack the module. I would stick with the 2320 in my opinion. You can find them on ebay.
