In my earlier computer days we had a little set up that was a 4 AA  batteries 
in a holder and a couple of alligator clips that we used to clip  across the 
internal battery while changing the internal memory battery, and  sometimes we 
hooked this up with velcro on the back of the computer when the  internal 
batteries  were not available.. it worked then, it will probably  work now

Then  what?  The battery dies, the memory locations and data contained  
there-in is lost and the unit returns to factory ROM settings as though a  
master reset has been done.  My Paragon II is about 10 years old and  has the 
original battery.

If you are concerned, replace the  battery. Of  course, when you remove the 
battery the current data  will be lost.  So either way, you're gonna loose 
data.  This is  no different than any other device using a microprocessor 
with battery RAM  data back-up technique.
