Blizzard 1230 Mk IV Accelerator Board - Battery Maintenance

The Amiga A1200 was not supplied with a real time clock and did not require battery backup for configuration settings and therefore did not have a battery fitted internally. There were however many 3rd party expansion units that provided a real time clock and battery backup and the Blizzard 1230 Mk IV was one such expansion device.

The Blizzard 1230 MkIV Accelerator board has a rechargeable battery which is soldered directly onto the board and can last for several years if taken care of correctly.
