    CR2032 is about 200mAh, AAA is about 1000mAh, but 3 AAA may be a bit too much, 2 is probably better.

    Yeah, I'm not quite sure what his intention is. Does the scale optionally take 3xAAA batteries? If so, yes, go that route. It will give you many times the run-time, as HKJ points out.

    But if you're thinking of wiring up a 3xAAA battery into the compartment that takes a CR2032, then it will definitely be high on the voltage. IIRC, a new CR2032 is something like 3.3v. Three new AAA alkalines in series will be 4.8v. Two would likely work fine (3.2v), but by the time they're half-depleted it will be down to around 2.6v, which might not be enough voltage to power the scale. Even so, it will give more run time than a CR2032.

    my old scale used a 2032 and man o man so many times id step on it and the battery would be dead im just trying and hopeing my new scale with 3 aaa s will last longer

    Go with 2 Energizer AAA L92s as I wouldn't put alkalines in anything valuable especially something used in a damp environment with a chance of getting spills on it.
    Fenix Split rings 1400+ sent, SWIVELS now available also!
