Encore Edition of the Avaratec CMOS Battery Fiasco


As you may remember earlier this year I was attempting to change a CMOS battery in an older Avaratec Model 4100 Series Laptop and it exploded into my right eye... "Lithium Battery Explosion"

Fortunately, no permanent damage was done and I can see ok, as well as can be expected from over 50 year old eyeballs.

Anyways, I still was determined to find a replacement battery but ran into nothing but road blocks. I couldn't find one that was compatible and the emergency room took the leads and plug from the old battery. The only one I could find was over $50.00 and even that was questionable.

So I took a risk and looked on Ebay and bought something that looked kind of similar for just $1.99 . I figured that even if I was wrong I was only out a few dollars and maybe I could solder the leads to the computer.

I was also working on other alternatives at the time. I had an old motherboard sitting around and it still had the CMOS battery holder soldered to it. I removed it and was going to jury rig that if the new battery didn't work.

I got the new battery and it fit perfectly. Problem solved.

I am writing this blog in case there is anyone out there that has an Avaratec Model 4100 and needs a CMOS battery to replace here is how to find one and other data to dig one up:

"Ebay CR2032 IBM CMOS Battery"

"Laptopz-Outlet ( 264005 )"

Thanks Luke,

Sorry to take so long to make a comment but I am in a bit of a computer crisis. My systems are ripped apart at the present time.

Hope your holidays are good ones.

I am doing better after the surgery and starting to return to a more normal state.

Take Care,
