I am trying to figure out what size battery the V3 and V4 take? In one of the tamas it says CR2032 is this the correct battery? I want to order a pack of them off ebay.

Also if you buy batteries on ebay, could you point me towards a good brand?

That's the right battery.
I'm pretty sure it's called Maxell, that's what type of brand I buy for those
Tamagotchis.

I wonder if they make them in lithium and if Tamas like those can take lithium since they'll last longer than alkaline. Thing is I think it's a slight different voltage. Not fully sure.

CR2032
3 volts.
I use Energizer, since it lasts a long time, but if you find super-cheap Chinese batteries, go for those since they may or may not last long, but you know you've got a vastly small price.
The other choice for batteries is LR2032 batteries. They're like CR2032, but they're lower-quality and often don't last as long. But. They're. Cheap. So if you don't mind changing the battery potentially very often, you can get those.

I bought a load of batteries that were cheap and a Chinese make, most of the lasted about 1-2 months, which was good since I only payed 4 for 20 batteries, still got some actually and the ones in my my paused tamagotchi are still running about 4 months after putting them away! :)
