Hi everyone,One point to be aware of is how it is charged. If a cell is charged too fast or for too long, it will be damaged.
An "intelligent" charger will determine when a cell is fully charged, and stop charging. Frequently a backup battery does not have an intelligent charger, but simply "trickle charges" the cells all the time it is connected to the mains.
So you probably need to determine the trickle charging current in the circuit, and compare that with the datasheet's spec. In the absence of more specific information, it is usual to assume than trickle charging at "C/10" is OK, which would be 11mA for a 110mAh cell.
