What type of batteries do I need for Monimoto and Key Fob?

Article author

Monimoto (MM1/2/5/6) comes with two CR123A primary batteries that can be easily found in most convenience or photo equipment stores. Once the batteries have reached a critically low level the App will send you a notification saying batteries are low and need replacement.  Simply open the enclosure remove the previous batteries, insert new ones and close the enclosure. 

Monimoto 7 comes with 2 Energizer Lithium AA batteries.

Monimoto 9 comes with a 900mAh rechargeable Lithium battery.  This battery is not meant to be replaced, do not attempt to disassemble M9 device and remove the battery.

Do Not Use Alkaline AA batteries, or the battery reading level will not be accurate.


IMPORTANT: You MUST NOT use rechargeable batteries. They have different electrical parameters and we cannot guarantee Monimoto will work properly or that the correct battery level will be displayed.

DO NOT use new and old batteries together as this will lead to the false battery level indication in the app.

DO NOT use Mitsai batteries as they are not compatible with Monimoto. 



Although Duracell and Panasonic batteries are very good, due to certain physical and chemical characteristics of the batteries, the device is not able to notify the owner of possible low batteries in time.

Our recommended batteries are Energizer or Varta. Both brands are easy to find.

    Hello there,

    I am a proud owner of an mm7  with the rectancular key fob with the three lines and I have to say that the divice works fantastic.

    The problem though is that after a year passed and the batery in the key fob run out of juice (litteraly died) so I replaced the battery with a new Energizer Lithium CR 2032 one (i can't remember what the original one in the key fob was). That was about two months ago and today for reasons beyond me the app informed me that the key fob battery is basicaslly out of juice again, which is really weird since the original one that came with my mm7 got almost a year out of it. Is there a prefered battery for the key fob? Am I missing something?

    Thank you beforehand for any reply
