New post: Understanding Coin Cell Limitations

Planning on powering that next über-low-power board of yours from a measly CR2032 coin cell?

This may give the impression that at 15mA everything works perfectly and battery capacity is great, while at 16mA nothing works. There is little public information available to explain why such a limit exists (if it indeed does exist), and little information explaining why 15mA would be a “magic number”.
