Question about Dell Axim X5 Pocket PC
Install Active Sync latest version off of the Microsoft site. Turn off automatic SYNC ..... change it to manual sync.
Then check the connections on the watch battery----- you may need to add a piece of tape to the battery lid to get a tight connection. Carefully bend out the tab that contacts the battery. Wipe the battery off with a clean rag before installing.

Tips for a great answer:
I will attempt to answer both questions and give some insite.
1st- No, the charger does not recharge the backup battery. The battery is the same kind of battery as you would have in a watch which at this time are not rechargable, but that would be a great idea.
The way it works is that when the main battery is charged the X5 uses that as its energy source. Only when the unit is off and or the main battery is depleated does the back-up battery kick in. Hence the name (back-up battery).
As for a solution to your problem. It sounds to me like you have a problem with your primary battery. I don't believe that it has much time left or it may just be a corrosion problem. I would try clening the battery contact point on the battery as well as on the X5 with some alcohol and a q-tip. I would also check the contacts where the back-up battery is. I have worked on watches before and their batteries will sometime cause some corroding.
