I have an accelerator card fitted to my Amiga 1200. The accelerator includes a real-time clock, but I noticed that the soldered-on rechargeable battery was in danger of leaking, so I cut it off before it could leak and cause any damage. This leaves me without a fully working RTC; the accelerator card will presumably have an operational RTC chip that will forget the correct time as soon as powered off.
Can I connect an RTC card to the main board clockport? Would this work, or would its RTC chip clash with accelerator's RTC chip?
The accelerator is an Apollo 68060 card. It does not appear to have an enable/disable RTC switch or jumper. I would consider replacing the battery, but don't want to have another soldered-on rechargeable type, and the limited space on the card and in the trapdoor slot would make a coin cell conversion tricky.
