You mean like it happens normally to 99.99999% of people with a PC having an exhausted battery when they change it with a new one?

The issue pointertovoid raised is about two different PC's, where the battery was replaced with a new one BUT that lost date in a week or however when only a small amount of time passed since the replacement. 

It could be also some sort of planned obsolescence taken to the extreme or a bad batch of new batteries, but I don't think they both came from the same source and probably the two batteries are not even the same brand.

On some cellphones you can set up a current date only within some absurd time frame (like 2005-2015, and rest i blocked), so this is actually interested hypothesis to investigate. Which would require checking people with the same MoBo/BIOS for the same issue.

If they came from the same store, it can be a case of bad storage (exposition to heat/cold or sunlight for a long time) or unfair seller dealing some production dropouts. This requires verifying your assumption to be confirmed or rejected.

Only for the record, once (when we were poor) calendars were stored and re-used :w00t:

Years repeat themselves, see:

So, you can set 2013 for 2019 (but 2020 wll be tricky ;))

Well, ok if you use cellphone's calendar only to match day-month with day-of-week, worse when you need timestamps device adds to notes/messages/photos etc. created, or other activities that cannot be easily emulated in analogue reality.
