Does a 3V battery work for a Machintosh Plus?

I'm restoring the analog board of a Macintoch Plus with a corroded battery holder. Since the original 4,5V battery is large and unusual I'm thinking of fitting a CR123A 3V battery holder instead. Does anyone know if this would work as well?

There is some discussion on this here:

There is a 3d printable adapter for use of a few coin cells stacked, but it wouldn't have the same life as the original. Referenced in the thread above but linked below for convenience:
