Sources for CMOS Battery Assembly for NUC5PPHY

Can you tell me where I can purchase the CMOS battery assembly for the NUC5PPYH and for future use in the NUC11TNi3?

This assembly for the NUC5PPYH has these characteristics:

(1) CR2032 coin lithium battery.

(2) An attached twisted pair of wires (red and black for positive and negative, respectively) about 4 centimeters in length.

(3) A connector (Molex 51021-0200) that is wired with the correct polarity.

(4) Electrical insulation around the battery, with an attached double-sided adhesive pad to hold it onto the mainboard.

This general configuration is described for all NUCs on Intel's website here:

Thank you for your help.

Amazon has them. Be careful not to grab one designed for Dell systems; they wire it the opposite way.

Here's a 10-pack for only US$8.35: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B095BZ2HDD?th=1.

Hope this helps,

Scott,

Thank you for replying.  I agree that the CMOS batteries wired for the Dell systems appear to have the wrong polarity for the Intel NUCs.  Unfortunately, the Tsorryen A model also appears to have the wrong polarity.  And the pictures of the Tsorryen B model, which show the connector, are not quite clear enough to discern polarity with certainty.  Both models are listed as discontinued on the Amazon web page.  However, I have written to Torrysen to inquire further, so thank you for the lead.  I am most grateful.

Rome Tech has a model specified for Intel NUC and ASUS:  https://www.amazon.com/Rome-Tech-Battery-Intel-Strix/dp/B08NZVFQRJ/

Unfortunately, the little inset pictures of the Rome Tech product show two different products, one which has an Ni-MH battery and the other has a lithium battery.  The one with the lithium battery is in the third small inset picture, with model number RT-CMOS-29  and has the right polarity for the NUC5PPYH.

Thank you again for your help.

You are welcome.

There are plenty of offers on Amazon for an individual battery. I provided this link for the 10-pack because it costs about the same amount as purchasing 2 individual batteries. I looked closely at the connector and thought that it had the right polarity, but I agree that it is difficult to see. If they are incorrect, you do understand that, with a gentle lift of the tabs (I use tip if exacto knife), you can pop out the pins and swap them in seconds.
