I did read the post at Which rechargeable RTC battery can I use in Framework Laptop 13?
Don’t want to have any issues with working with files should we experience a prolonged power outage here and I accidentally run the main battery out.
Not happy the RTC battery isn’t stocked in the marketplace yet.
Thought about buying one with solder tabs from Digikey and removing the casing and tabs, but concerned that those batteries could be several years old already.
And some vendors like one given in another post on this topic to an Amazon link, require purchasing 2 or more batteries at a time and/or it necessitates an extra shipment from across the country to get to me, so this move to not include the coin battery isn’t all that more environmentally-friendly and is just creating extra hassle and expense for me. Plus I have the usual concerns about buying possibly counterfeit or poor quality batteries from some random online vendor.
Guess I’ll wait for the battery to appear in the marketplace but this means I’ll need to crack open my case again later to install it, which I was hoping to not have to do.
