    I’ve just checked the SPEC submission and it mentions unter ‘Stable Storage’ that “The battery-backed NVRAM ensures that any uncommitted transactions are preserved for at least 72 hours.”

    For 62xx and 8xxx systems shouldn’t it be “preserved for eternity” ;-)
    Seeing that it is offloaded to flash and therefore not needing any battery whatsoever afterwards…
