RE: CMOS Battery Dies so quickly

I have several desktop computers that are unplugged for four to six months each year without the CMOS battery dying. One is 10 years old without a battery replacement. This is most likely a mother board issue.

I use cheap Chinese 2032 batteries for high demand applications and get usage equivalent to US drugstore versions. Cost is about a tenth as the drugstore.
