The batteries them selves have a self discharge mechanism. Most are far
better than their rated leakge, but still have finite leakage and will
eventually die. They will also eventually fail, and some fixed
percentage will fail short. I've replaced a number of the Dallas parts
who's batteries failed short.
Back it up.
