I suggest using double-layer super capacitor* intead of Lithium backup
battery. These capacitors stores energy for a long time, like a
battery and they have much longer lifetime. 0,2 F capacity should be
enough for RTC backup on several hours, maybe days.

>> Has anyone done this replacement before? any gotchas?
> no, but I think it's not too difficult if you have a little experience with DIY.
> I've this (known) problem too but I'm afraid if I replace the battery it'll die as the old one... not sure... but I think I can live with that and so I never remove the main battery.
>> Also,as anyone found a source for replacement torx case screws?
> I think it's easy to find in any good hardware shop (not computer-hardware eh! the one that sells you screwdrivers, electric drills & Co.)
