Perfect! I never even knew I had this battery in there. Couldn't figure out why the date and time wouldn't stay set every time I shut it off. And then I found the answer here.

Thank you very much for the post!

I'm a senior citizen and am not very good with modern technology. Been going crazy trying to set my clock in my digital camera. I didn't want to buy a new one because I have had this one for years (Power Shot A590) and didn't want to have to learn to use a newer one. Finally got smart enough to do a google search for an answer. Will get a new battery tomorrow and solve my problem. Thanks for the help!...the information age is good for something after all.
