Battery backup retains data on the clock

All of the information is stored in your clock. It has a lithium battery and will retain your data in event of a power outage or PC failure.

The battery does have a life of about 5 years, so it will need to be replaced eventually. Please contact our Service department to schedule a repair when the clock is approaching 5 years old.
