CR1216 battery with Adafruit PiRTC - Precise DS3231

Hello,

I am using https://www.adafruit.com/product/4282 - Adafruit PiRTC - Precise DS3231 Real Time Clock.

I was a rush to install the unit and installed it with a CR1216 12mm 3V battery instead of the suggested CR1220 12mm 3v battery (https://www.adafruit.com/product/380), which I left off my order by accident!

I followed the Adafruit installation instructions, and the unit appears to work perfectly. But can someone please advise if this will cause a malfunction later down the line?

What's the difference in usage of a CR1216 vs a CR1220 with a DS3231 Real Time Clock?

Thanks in advance,

A
