Frank -
I've had an Apple 1MB and 2MB card and those *DO* have batteries in them
(someone out there back me up... I don't have mine anymore...). They were
backups.. to extend the 1 year frash RAM life of the card. After that they
used the eMate compat voltage of the eMate and stopeed the battery with the
4MB card (there was no 3MB, 1, 2 and then it went to 4)... these are the
Apple cards, I don't know about other manufacturers.
