How long will Sony RX10 MK1 remember its settings with no batter in?

Hi, I have a Sony RX10 mk1 camera, i havn't used it now for a good while, although will not sell it as it was fairly dear and is still a good camera and i want to get back into using it again.

From time to time i have turned it on and the batter inside is usually dead and when i put some charge in the battery it will ask me to set the date / time again etc.. I have 2 spare batteries (3 in total) the other 2 are 3rd party batteries though made by ex-pro, although i think i remember these had pretty good life as well.

I was wondering how long the batteries can sit in the camera before they generally fully run down and am i best just leaving them out completely if i won't be using it for a while?

And if i do leave them out, how long should the camera retain any settings?

Thanks

James
