Does the 2017 27-inch iMac 5K have a lithium CMOS battery?

As noted here iMac Intel 21.5" Retina 4K Display 2017 Teardown picture 10, does the 2017 27" 5K iMac have a lithium CMOS battery?

I am guessing yes, but I wait for the experts.

Thanks!

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

All of the iMac's have a CMOS battery to maintain the clock and settings. Here is the backside of the logic board where you'll see the Panasonic battery - 27" iMac

Dan, that is not the logic board for a 2017 27" 5K iMac.

That is correct it is not the very newest model! But, it's the exact same location and config as I referenced below you can see it in the OWC vid.

What OWC video? I think you are confused....

That's the 21.5" teardown, we don't have the new 27" model but if you watch the OWC vid here you'll get a glimpse of it - teardown of the 2017 27-inch Apple iMac. I've pasted an image of the previous model which is exactly the same above.
