Battery question

When building my V5 last week, I took note of a holder for a CR2032 battery on the main board, but there is no reference in the assembly manual to actually inserting one. Even the pictures show the holder empty right up to the time the case halves are joined.

The unit works without battery, but does it provide any function?

thanks for the update… ron

I’m pretty sure it’s the battery backup for the real time clock chip.


Yes it is, and @jofemodo made a recent post about how to use it, if you wish:
