the battery type is the numbers and letters written on the battery. to get it back you should download it. do not repeat not select 'reset'

:ph34r: don't worry! the battery you need is a 3v DL2032 + . a really good place to get them is Longs Drug Store; they come in packs of 2 for about $5 so after you put the battery in, you just press download, and youve got ur tama back!

The 'CR2032' batteries also work on tamagotchis. To save your batteries energy, don't connect as much and don't play too many games. Also, keeping the sound off will help the battery last longer too. :ph34r:

I brought a pack of 25 batteries from ebay for only 1.50 - so I'd sugges to look there:

You can, but eBayers tend to sell mass quantities of them (Packs of 20+) at low prices whereas Wal*mart will charge a bit more for only two or three batteries. You'll have to wait a bit longer for shipping and such, but it'll be quite a while before the average tama fan needs more batteries if you buy 20 or so off of ebay for a few bucks. ;)
