Home Buttons mini uses two AA alkaline batteries. They prove to be a good compromise between capacity, size, price and availability. A pair should last you about two years for the following use case:

  • Varta Industrial Pro AA
  • 30 minutes sensor interval (for temperature / humidity reporting)
  • 20 button presses per day
  • WPA-2 Wi-Fi security

Battery life might be shorter if you use Home Buttons more often or if you use WPA-3 WiFi security. It can be extended by increasing the sensor interval (you can do that from Home Assistant or the setup page) or setting up static IP.

Always use high quality alkaline batteries from a reputable brand. During WiFi communication, the device needs large bursts of power, which low-quality batteries might not be able to provide, decreasing your battery life drastically.
