The backup battery lasts 5 years if you do not go too low on your main
battery charge. This is also if your machine does not sit with a message
popping up while it is being sent to service and being sent back. I have
one user that leaves his HPC in his office whenever he goes on a business
trip (I know it doesn't make sense). When he does this, it pops up with a
message shortly after he leaves and wears down the main and then the backup
battery by the time he returns. He has gone through 4 batteries in 6 months.

You can go to almost any store that sells cameras to get the backup
battery. Suggestions: Long's, Target or K-Mart.

Hope it helps,
