ContentsOverviewPolarityInternal ResistanceTechnologiesSilver CellCommon TypesOverview Button cells maybe also be known as coin cells or watch batteries. Polarity The insulated top cap of a button cell is the negative terminal, the base is the positive terminal. Internal Resistance The internal resistance of a coin cell battery starts of at a rather large 10Ω. This then rapidly … Continue reading Button Cell (Coin Cell)
