What i would like to know is why do people mention all these various battery numbers. The board says cr1616 right on it. And that battery is available just as easy as the others and is what belongs in it.

I recently bought a sapphire that someone broke off the arms and tabs completely off the board. Can I still solder on a new battery to the board even though there is no old solder left on the positive side of the board?
