Hi.
Are these Energizer 2032 Batteries (http://www.argos.ie/static/Product/partNumber/9801334/c_1/1|cat_12160455|Batteries|12160500/Trail/searchtext%3EBATTER.htm) the same as my CMOS batteries?

I opened up my two desktop computers before and noted the CMOS batteries in case I ever needed to replace them. They are as follows:

Packard Bell Imedia:
Maxell CR2032 3V Lithium Coin Battery

Komplett Pc:
K.T.S CR2032 3V Lithium Coin Battery

The number 2032 is a common theme.

CR2032 is the most common BIOS backup battery used in motherboards. The link you've given is to the same type of batteries... but 5 euro for two batteries?? In India we get 1 for Rs 20 (less than US$0.40, not Energizer, though), and if you buy 10 or more, it goes down to as low as Rs 10-15.
