This is a simple breakout board for our through-hole 24.5 mm coin cell holder. All you need to do is solder the tabs of the holder down and you're good to go! There are also two mounting holes for attaching it to your project.
Note: We've found that applying a bit of solder to the large solder pad in the middle creates a better connection with the negative side of the battery.
Note: You will get just the bare PCB. Check below for the coin cell holder that you will need to solder to the board.
This skill defines how difficult the soldering is on a particular product. It might be a couple simple solder joints, or require special reflow tools.
Skill Level: Noob - Some basic soldering is required, but it is limited to a just a few pins, basic through-hole soldering, and couple (if any) polarized components. A basic soldering iron is all you should need.

I just got this by mail today and I got the right stuff, but if I look at the printing, something is odd;
"12.5mm Coin Cell" printed on it. Size isn't 12.5mm I suppose :)
The breakout board silkscreen says "24.5mm" now. Hope that helps to clear up any confusion.
I wonder how well the battery is held with this kinda holder. Does it slip out easily?
not at all. it fits in pretty snug.
I think the silkscreen on the back is wrong??????
Ha, nice catch, it sure is. We'll see about getting that fixed...
Damn, is it me or are some of these prices, like really high?
Well, at thousand-of prices, it probably costs them $1.5-2 to get the actual pcb from Gold Phoenix, plus markup.
