Quite a few >8, in fact. I got my Psion 3 in 1991.

The early Palm models that used disposable AAA cells used a capacitor to
keep RAM powered while batteries were replaced. This has the advantage that
there is no second battery to have to remember to replace, but the
disadvantage that the capacitor may not hold much charge (especially if the
main batteries are nearing depletion) while the "silver aspirin" in the
Psion could keep the thing alive for weeks after the main batteries had
died (as long as it were not in need of replacement itself).

That's very true. Not providing user-replaceable batteries in the NVFS
palms is an almost unforgivable oversight.
