The OP is talking about the internal factory fitted battery , the one that keeps the time and date. That is why when you chare the manib battery you don't need to reset the date.

Actually I'm talking about both. The little internal battery still works fine after 17 years.
In sharp contrast I had also bought what at the time was Nikon's premium, highest end compact camera - the P7000 - made in late 2010. By early 2018, the internal batteries of that model started failing, and its big batteries stopped holding their charge for long lengths of time.

I remember my favourite Minolta 7000 died as the internal battery failed and it was not replaceable.  I regularly replace the main battery in my old cameras to avoid that problem. I also find the KM batteries to have excellent charge holding over several years.
