What size/type of battery is needed for BIOS: Inspiron 530s

This question is answered

I have searched support and all I can find is how to change the battery, but not the size or type of battery needed!?!

Can anybody confirm the size / type of battery needed for the following Dell Model:

Inspiron 530s

General
ServiceTag J3R***1
Windows Version Microsoft® Windows Vista™ Home Premium
Processor
Model Intel(R) Pentium(R) Dual CPU E2180 @ 2.00GHz

 

As I have to reset my computers time and BIOS setting every time I turn off this computer for more than 5 minutes.

I don't want to pull the current battery till I have the new/replacement in hand.
