Battery (CR1220 or CR1225) to work

Does the Argon40Eon actually need a battery (The battery is a CR1220 or CR1225) to work ? Thank you. Any help would be appreciated.

No! The battery keeps the date and time IF you remove the power. Same as your PC. It’s a bloody pain though so you might as well get one. If sudo apt update doesn’t work. Chances are your date & time is wrong.

Thanks for the reply, I figured that out as well. However the whole thing is dead anyway :disappointed_relieved:
