The end result.
Setup your Arduino.
Install the Arduino Learning Board Library.
A battery is not required to run the clock module.
The clock can be powered from the Arduino using the VCC-5V connection.
We have read that if the clock is powered from the Arduinos power, the clock will send a charge to the battery.
This will cause problems if the battery is not rechargeable.
Apparently a rechargeable battery is preferred. Therefore, if you have the clock powered by the Arduino there is no need to use a battery.
If you decide to use a battery, please do your own research beforehand. Things may have changed since this blog was written.
We were able to operate the clock without a battery without any problems.
