You only need the 5 volt supply to recharge the built-in NiCad that
maintains the RAM. It lasts about a week, whether used or not,
I believe, when new. I have not tested it in years, but it still holds
some charge since I can run on batteries (limited by miserable NEC
replacement batteries that all the posters are trying to eliminate).
Has anybody taken one apart - why three leads?
