AA Holder:

Coin Holder:
I have heard from various sources that those coin batteries do not necessarily provide the correct voltage to the clock to keep it running while the power is off. Others say it is just fine. I took my 3000 to a former authorized Commodore service tech and had him remove the NiCad battery and replace it with a lithium ion battery of the same form factor, so it was essentially a drop-in replacement with a little soldering involved.
