It would be helpful to know whether a new PRAM battery unit needs charging as in this article

https://discussions.apple.com/thread/239...

or whether it is assumed that it will start charging in the course of normal use.

from looking at other pictures of the PRAM module it appears to have a removable Lithium Coin battery.

Is this battery something standard that I can just pop the old one out and replace it,

or is it special in that it can be recharged or such ??
