These are common Camera Batteries as well. Local Market sells Panasonic for 99p, Staples, Asda, PC World etc etc

You probably all know this but the number relates to the size, 2032 is 20mm diameter 3.2 mm deep.

just in case you need one of them as well.

The current draw in use is minute. It is important however not to put any contamination "across" the two faces of the battery as this can cause a leakage current that's actually much higher than the current drawn by the circuit it's powering. Same with watch batterys as well.
