Cell battery

Practically all digital cameras have a tiny button cell Lithium battery that is 3.3Vdc when new. It is used to keep the real clock running (date and time), and, in some cases, to keep your settings and preferences in volatile memory. They usually last up to 10 years. After that, the device will not be able to remember date and time when the main battery is removed or discharged, and, sometimes, will be totally dead.
