Does anybody know the details of the TBolt?  Does it have any way to remember 
the almanac or time without external power?  I looked at a few pictures from 
the net and didn't see anything that looked appropriate, but I didn't pull 
the cover off mine.

A large cap would probably provide a few minutes to hours without using 
super-cap technology which probably didn't exist when the TBolt was designed 
or adding nasty chemicals that batteries usually contain.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
