Does the Factory Seconds FW13 11th gen have the RTC battery issue?

Hi Framework Community,

I recently purchased a Factory Seconds FW13 DIY Edition 11th Gen i7-1165G7 B-stock. I want to know if these laptops will suffer from the RTC battery issue that was present on the 11th gen Intel Mainboards. There is nothing mentioned on the product page so hopefully the issue is not a concern but I would like to double-check.

Thank you

They will suffer from the issue where an rtc battery will drain, but there is a pcb that can be used as an alternative that you can request for free from support if it is not preinstalled (though I assume Framework will give people the option to install it only if they want to.)
