<p>$$ P = IV = 5e-3 * 3.3 * 0.1 = 1.65mW $$</p>

P = IV = 5e-3 * 3.3 * 0.05 = 0.825 mW

1 Wh = 1 watt for 1 hour

0.825 mW for 365 days = 7.2 Wh

E [wh] = (Q [mAh] * V [V])/1000

Q = (1000 * 7.2)/3.3 = 2181 mAh

The CR2477 is one of the largest coin cell batterys (20mm diameter and 4.7mm thickness) and has a capacity of ~1000 mAh.

An Alkaline AA battery can supply 1.5V with a capacity of 1800–2600 mAh
