Hi Since we don’t often *need* the smallest cell made *and* we’re probably talking lifetime of the cell….. does 22 na vs 33 na matter?
…. hmmm …. CR2032 ( which is the smallest I would use) is rated at 0.22 AH. A nano amp for a year is about 8 uA hours a year. So 30 na for 20 years is 0.005 AH Indeed, the self discharge of the cell (or life or whatever you want to call it) will probably get you before the 30 na drain will. Based on the previous data on the chip, I think I would just run the crystal all the time.
