Default Eveready 393 battery, $3.49 at RS


Thanks for the link above that included a PDF version of the Bearcat 210 user manual. The 210 was my first "digital" scanner back around 1980 or 1981. It served me well 24/7 until I donated it to a friend to get him started in the hobby in 1989.

Approx. 560 KB user manual:


"Replace the battery with Mallory 10L123, Ray-O-Vac RW48, or Eveready 393."

The 393 battery is available from Radio Shack and most stores that sell watch batteries. The photo in the manual shows that the button just holds the battery in place. You could rig something to keep it pressed in or install another battery holder.
