How often should the lithium batteries be replaced in Mercury Panels?

In general, the lithium batteries on the board will last for several years.  As best practice, however, and Mercury recommendation:  to guarantee non disruption on highly utilized sites, it is recommended to replace the batteries annually. 

The coin battery type is CR2330 or BR2330.  This recommendation is consistent as published in the UL guidelines. Elevated temperatures will decrease battery life (consistent with annual replacement).  If boards are put into storage, it is recommended that an insulator should be added to the board prior to storage.
