My wife started giving me these this year. They are the "Try Me" buttons that come in various holiday decorations that light up.

First I thought they were just switches, but they have batteries inside. Pushing the button yields 3.3V, or 6V or whatever they set up inside.

Not sure what I can use them for, but thought to mention.

Could use to power LEDs. For the 3.3 volt versions a standard white LED can be stuck into the connector and you would have a small light

Or you can just rip them apart and have a free source of CR2032 batteries, useful for laptop and desktop PC BIOS backup, car alarm remotes, VCR remotes etc.
