Topic: Super capacitor to replace RTC coin battery? (Read 6177 times) previous topic - next topic

Some RTCs have built-in battery charging circuits, perhaps a super capacitor can be substituted.

I saw one suggestion to use a DS1302 because it has a charging circuit already in the RTC.  I don't know how if differs in power consumption or if you might be able to charge the cap to a higher voltage and give you a long power off time.
