    Do Stern Spike II systems have batteries that need to be replaced or does the SD Card replace the batteries in that system?

    CR2032 - circled with arrow pointing to it.

    Wow that's lame. I assumed they had a NVRAM type solution. Is the battery soldered to the board?

    It's one that clips in like on motherboards.

    The spike 2 has a BR1225 battery.

    How often does it need to be replaced?

    So look over what you have for a battery. Can't be hard. Easier than me digging further.

    I found it, thanks! It's a coin-style battery turned sideways so I didn't see it at first. Any thoughts on how often to change the battery?

    Thanks again!

    They either have a clip you lift and slide out, or just slide out.

    At work we replace the 2032 batteries on a 3 year program. You could probably stretch that much further. I've seen them last in excess of 10 years or more on through hole ram boards.

    The br1225 about the same as above I would say
    5-10 years
