The CR2032 *is* a lithium battery.
250 x CR2032 Panasonic Lithium Coin Cell Batteries

Normally they last about 5 to 7 years, which is about the life span of a Macintosh.

(A Mac's rotating disk hard drive isn't likely to last longer than this either.)
Backblaze Blog How long do disk drives last?

But sometimes a CR2032 inexplicably doesn't last that long. It probably varies depending on how you use your Mac and how clean your power is.
