A500 plus battery ?
« on: June 23, 2011, 05:07:17 AM »
Hi all.

Can anyone describe to me where exactly the battery for the A500 plus clock function is located ? I need to locate it before it potentially ends up corroding my motherboard.

Many thanks

You really can't miss it.  It's a big three-ridged barrel about 1/2" by 5/8" right next to the expansion port.  I have three of these units.  Sorry no pics, but a quick Google Images search for "Amiga 500+ battery" turns up results.
