I think the main argument for a coin cell battery is that you don't know where you or your Amiga is in 6–8 years. Commodore never intended for their products to be used for a longer time than that, and if people did, they would have replaced the battery once they saw that the clock no longer kept the time.

My Amigas have never suffered from battery leakage because they've been in more or less constant use since they were made. But when I receive a machine for repair, the actual cause of damage is that the machine has been left to rot for years.
