Dynachord ADD-ONE battery replacement

I've searched the net and this site to make sure I don't damage my ADD-ONE by possible replacing he battery with the wrong one. I looked inside after 7 years of storage and the battery looked like it was ready to burst and vomit its toxic brew all over the precious cicuitbod so I carefully wrangled it out with some pliers.

Lo and behold it's a 3V battery MADE IN WESTERN GERMANY so it has got to be old!

The problem is that I have some reserves in the same size but they are 3.3 and 3.6 V respectively.

Would I risk damaging my precious drum machine if I replaced the 3V battery I took out with either of these two or do I have to look for a 3V battery?

3.3 seems to be o.k.

"The battery was checked and measured OK (3.31V)."

DYNACORD ADD ONE - GREAT CONDTION/PRO-SERVICED | eBay

I had buisness connections with Dynacord in the past and thought I would find the info in the german service-manuals, but they only say it is lithium. Then I found this section about the 3.3 volt battery in the ebay add.
