    Desolder it, or cut it off with side cutters. It's a ticking time bomb

    That makes sense then regarding Wolfenstein!

    I have a replacement kit coming in to replace the barrel battery, so soon the barrel battery will be gone and replaced with a CR2032

    I believe his question was what to replace it with.

    What I was planning on doing on a similar board was soldering in a coin cell battery holder with a low power drop diode to prevent the non-rechargeable battery from getting charge current.

    Any other suggestions?

    90% of these boards have an external battery header already. No need for adding diodes and such, just plug in a 4.5v or 6v (depending on the board) primary into the header and go
