I just got new batterys for my tamas off ebay, they came, my mom put a battery in her watch and gave me 2 for m v2 an v3, I took out the old batterys and put in new ones, well my v2 is fine, v3 is screwed I beleive, cause the battery comes outta place and I need to press it back in it still does that and I have tape holding the batterys in, I noticed the batterys are a bit smaller, but theyre fine in the v2, is my v3 screwed or the battery?

If the new battery is a different size from the original, it's not the right replacement. It probably just happens to work because the voltage is the same. However, being smaller, it may have a shorter life span than the correct replacement would have had.

a v3 takes 1 CR-2032 battery. This is coming straight from the tamagotchi connection booklet, makesure you write it down, then you can go out and buy it.
