    Great pics of the PCB. Looks promising!
    Can you confirm if this will have rtc or not? If not, is there any technical reason why?

    Pretty sure there is none. I think there would be an extra chip.

    Probably. I'd just like to hear from the team about an absolute confirmation, and whether it was just a decision they took or there a technical limitation preventing them from doing so.

    RTC is the one thing keeping this flashcart line from being the absolute all-around best. Would be so cool and exciting to see it on there

    no rtc, because there is no space to deploy.

    It's not hard desoldering a battery though.

    Smaller battery don't means less battery life?

    It does mean shorter battery life (assuming the rest of the components aren't more efficient than before), but this battery will fit in a DS Lite Slot 2 case and is more easily replaced than the EZFlash IV's soldered in battery.
