Is a pram battery necessary

My powerbook was completely power at all. I removed the Pram Battery and the laptop started.

Do I need to put the pram battery back in the laptop or should I leave it out.

The PRAM battery stores date and time settings, it could live without it but every time the battery dies the clock will reset.
