T430s Backup Battery Question

#1 Post by Scorpion8 » Mon Apr 27, 2020 11:27 pm

Is the CR2032 backup battery in the T430s replaceable inside that connector, or is the entire part molded in and need to be sourced?

Nothing much changed since...
Thanks! Looks fairly simple to de-solder/re-solder the terminal connectors and then use either heat shrink tape or Plasti-Dipp to cover and insulate it.
