I purchased a HUO Family Guy last October and was a little surprised that the 2430 backup battery on the MPU was dead. I replaced it and everything was good until yesterday (about 5 months after the replacement), when all settings were lost as the battery was once again drained (.35 volts). Other than the dead battery, the pin works great with no issues. I checked the blocking diode at D24 and it is functioning properly.
Since NVRAM does not appear to be a reasonable option for this pin, would it work for me to use either a rechargeable battery or a super capacitor (1.5F, 5V) instead of the coin battery? I realize that I would need to jumper the blocking diode at D24, but is there any other reason that either of those wouldn't work?
