CR11108, CR1/3N, CR-1/3N, DL1/3N, 2L76 Battery Equivalents and Replacements
CR11108, CR1/3N, CR-1/3N, DL1/3N, 2L76, etc. batteries are non-rechargeable lithium 3V cylindrical batteries commonly used in a broad range of applications, including dog collars, laser pointers, LED micro flashlights, cameras, gun sights, glucose meters, thermometers, etc.
CR11108 cylindrical lithium batteries feature 1/3 height of the much larger N size cylindrical batteries and are double in height when compared with LR44/SR44 batteries and are also often labeled as CR1/3N, CR-1/3N, DL1/3N, 2L76, etc. battery.

CR11108 Battery Features and Specifications
CR11108 battery features physical dimensions of (D x H) 11.6 x 10.8 mm (0.4567 x 0.4252 inches), and voltages typical for Lithium Manganese Dioxide chemistry - nominal voltage of 3.0 volts and a cutoff voltage of 2.0 volts.
Its nominal capacity is in the 160-180 mAh range.
Due to its dimensions, CR11108 is often considered a button/coin cell battery.
With its dimensions, CR11108 is a very popular battery that is related to several other batteries, including:
- LR44 battery: 11.6 x 5.4 mm, 1.5 volts, same diameter, half the height of the CR11108 battery.
- 4LR44 battery: 13 x 25.2 mm, 6.0 volts, similar diameter, double the height (and a little more) of the CR1108 battery,
- N-cell battery: 12 × 30.2 mm, 1.5 volts, similar diameter, ~3x the height of the CR11108 battery.
Because of these similarities, the CR11108 battery is also often labeled as CR1/3N, CR-1/3N, DL1/3N, 2LR44, 2L76, 2KL1/3N, 5008L, VL1/3N, etc.
Note: although four LR44 batteries and/or two 2LR44 (CR11108) batteries may be used to replace the 4LR44 battery using a simple battery holder that comes with some devices, if one combines six LR44 batteries, or three 2LR44 (CR11108) batteries, one gets N-cell battery, but with 9.0 volts, not a standard N-cell battery 1.5 volts.
Since the CR11108 battery can be replaced with a pair of SR44 batteries (for a total of 3.1V and 150-200 mAh), this is not always recommended due to the different discharge characteristics and generally longer shelf life of the lithium CR11108 battery.
But, if the manufacturer of your device clearly states that your device may use both a CR11108 battery and a pair of LR44 or SR44 batteries, then why not, especially if a new CR11108 battery is not available.
CR11108, CR1/3N, DL1/3N Battery Comparison Chart
The following chart lists some of the most popular CR11108, CR1/3N, DL1/3N bateries with their features and specifications:
|Capacity||Operating Temperature||Annual Self-Discharge Rate||Discharge Current|
|Duracell DL1/3N (CR1/3N)||160 mAh, 15 kΩ down to 2V @20°C||-20°C to +75°C||<1% @20°C||2.0 mA std. contd|
|EEMB CR1/3N CR11108||170 mAh||-40°C to +60°C||(up to 10 years)||3.0 mA std. cont.
60 mA max. cont.
140 mA max. pulse
|Energizer 2L76 (CR11108)||160 mAh, 15 kΩ down to 2V @21°C||-40°C to +60°C||-||60 mA max. cont.
80 mA max. pulse
|GP Batteries CR1/3N||160 mAh||-||(5 years at room temperature)||2.7 mA over 1kΩ|
Thanks to their Lithium Manganese Dioxide (LiMnO2) chemistry CR11108 (CR1/3N) batteries can be used for both low-discharge applications (CMOS batteries, for example) and for high-discharge pulse applications.
DL1/3N Battery vs. CR1/3N Battery
DL1/3N is Duracell's CR11108 (CR1/3N) battery - lithium, non-rechargeable, 3.0V, (D x H) 11.6 x 10.8 mm battery.
For short, it is Duracell's CR1/3N battery, but it has the custom letters "DL" instead of "CR" in its label.
If You are looking for a CR11108 battery and You have found DL1/3N 11.6x10.8 mm lithium batteries, go for them; they are one of the best such batteries.
Long Story Short: If You are looking for a 3.0V cylindrical 11.6 x 10.8 mm battery, You are looking for a non-rechargeable CR11108 battery that also features many other labels.
If your device allows replacing the CR11108 battery with LR44 and/or SR44 batteries, a pair of LR44/SR44 batteries can be used to replace one CR11108 battery when this one is hard to
However, the CR11108 battery is a very common battery and can be easily found at many online stores and local hardware/photo shops.
