Whilst this is confusing, and could have been easily remedied with a note included with the holder, or perhaps even a label adhered to the holder, we do need to remember that this is probably an off-the-shelf holder normally used for a 6v application, and it has been re-purposed for 3v becasue of availability. All this comes down to is one of the re-occurring issues of documentation - or lack of. Maybe this exact problem is worthy of another sticky thread (in the RTC topic?), explaining exactly this, and using those pictures to illustrate. i.e., if you have a holder that shows + up and - down, don't do it!

...something to think about...
