Do you want to look inside a lithium coin battery? This 3D graphic shows the inner workings of a VL lithium coin battery and gives an excellent overview of the battery materials (e.g. electrodes, gasket, insulator, poles, etc.).

How to read the model numbers used for lithium batteries

As a general rule, the model number contains two capital letters and one or more digits as shown in the example (variations can be expected). This numbering system is supported by the Japan International Standard Committee of Clocks and Watches and is an established practice in Japan.

VL - 2020

V- vanadium pentoxide lithium battery
L - round
20- battery diameter (in mm)
20- divide this by 10 to obtain the battery height (in mm)
