This small battery block is commonly used in computers. Our battery is a functional replacement for the CMOS batteries mentioned above including the Tadiran TL-5242/W. Our functional equivalent is not encapsulated in plastic so it is a cylindeer and not square in cross section. This battery can be used in many XT and AT compatible personal computers which use a 3.6 or 3.7 Volt clock battery. Examples are the Toshiba T3100, AT&T 3B2 and many other 286 & 386 machines. See here for a fuller list........

Our Tadiran TL-5242/W replacement CMOS battery comes with:

CMOS & Clock Backup batteries perform an important function when the power is turned off; the CMOS battery maintains the time and date, thus insuring their accuracy when the system is once again restarted. Also important, the battery saves the computers BIOS set-up configuration, so the system can be efficiently rebooted once it is switched on again. For example, the computer knows what type of hard drive it is booting from etc. These batteries are variously known as CMOS batteries, Real Time Clock (RTC) batteries, PRAM batteries or simply internal batteries.

In most cases, replacement of the CMOS battery is an easy task. It is simply a matter of locating the battery on the computer's motherboard, removing it and plugging in a new one.

Some computers do not protect their CMOS batteries with an on-board diode. The machines require a battery such as the Keeper II LTC-16P-CO-S8 or similar. Such a battery has a protective diode built into it. Our Tadiran TL-5242/W compatible CMOS battery is not suitable for this type of machine.
