Sanyo Rice Cooker Battery Replacement

The Sanyo EJC-BS-B35S rice cooker is ideal for 2 to 4 people. It’s compact so won’t take up much space on the counter top or kitchen cabinet. Other than the coin battery, it’s a VERY reliable appliance. The problem is the coin battery lasted a few years and was never intended to be replaceable. That is, it’s soldered directly to a circuit board in the case! When it runs down it no longer remembers the settings which is a bummer. In this project I’ll show you how I replaced it with a pair of AAAs which will last forever!
