I bought a VAX 4000-300 a few months ago and the battery was
dead. I left it on for untold hours over the span of a few weeks
before it built up enough of a charge to remember the boot device and
the other settings. I was quite surprised when I turned it on one day
and it booted by itself. I had given up on the old battery. Moral of
the story: it may take longer than you might reasonably expect.
