> Just wondering does anyone know how long snes cartridge battery backups last ? I am starting to fear losing my game data and my backup unit (game doctor sf III) just died.....

I estimate about 7-8 years based on reports. It's pretty easy to change the battery if you have the right battery and beginning soldering skills. Just get the right security bit, open the cart, unsolder the old battery and solder in the new one.

If you have a working backup unit you could even save your sram and restore it after the battery replacement to avoid losing your saved games. Another legal use for backup units.
