Internal Battery (600D)
Nov 11, 2012

This might be a stupid question and it isn't a big issue and my world doesn't end to it. The question is does anyone know what kind of intenal battery 600D uses?

Last week I noticed that my 600D doesn't want to keep the time and date after I change the the external battery (LP-E8). So obviously the internal battery is drained. When I look inside the battery chamber I can see a glimpse of a small coin battery. The internal battery is sealed behind a small plastic cover. But I can't tell what type of battery is in question. I could brake the seal and look it for myself, but it's always better to ask first.

I could gladly change the internal battery myself (warranty will be void) without the fuzz with warranty service and one-two weeks of frustrating waiting time. I have had my cam almost one year and the warranty ends next month.

Best regards
