Full Answer

Batteries that are the same voltage as the CR927, but not necessarily the same size, include 2032, 2450, 2025, and 2430 batteries. The numbers indicate different heights and thicknesses, even though the voltage of the batteries are the same. For instance, a 2032 battery is 2.0 millimeters wide and 3.2 millimeters thick, yet it is three volts like the CR927.

Due to the small sizes of CR927 batteries, they are often sold in quantities of 5, 10, 25, 50 and 100. Manufacturers include Panasonic, Duracell, Energizer, Rayovac, Sanyo and Vinnic. According to Mega Batteries, batteries of this size are so small, they are called "coin cells."

The shelf life of these non-rechargeable batteries is between 7 to 10 years, and they are used in blinking jewelry, calculators, flashing toys, watches, glow-in-the-dark jewelry, car starters, garage door openers and computer memory backup.

    Mercedes auxiliary batteries occasionally operate in conjunction with the main systems battery or take over for it when that battery dies or has extremely low voltage. When the main battery has moderately low voltage, the vehicle computer connects the two batteries, allowing the main battery to return to normal, while charging the auxiliary battery at the same time. Many Mercedes vehicles feature a dual battery system to prevent failures in their combined hydraulic and electric braking systems.
