    The clock is powered by a 1.5-volt battery.

    Hello.



    - The clock is powered by a 1.5-volt battery.
    - The clock runs on a 1.5-volt battery.
    Do both sound good?

    Thank you.

    Do you say "operate on a battery" in place of "run on a battery"?

    Yes, it's possible to say that a device of some sort "operates on a battery".

    There are ten of you?

    Does this mean we will receive ten times more questions from you?
