the EdiRol SD-20, SD-80, SD-90, and E-MU Proteus 2000 series all don't have internal batteries thankfully, they use flash memory.

Yeap, there really isn't much at all inside of the SD-20 at least. I replaced the caps in mine late last year I believe it was. And with the exception of a few games or midi files, the SD-20 has just about replaced my MT-200 in terms of using it with games.

Context? Or did you just posted some random words?

I suppose he meant that it has glue and it is not corroding, I don't know if I agree, my SC-155 had the battery changed and there was an acid thread that almost came off the logic board.

I assumed something like that, but it seems strange that someone with 9 posts in 9 years comes out of nothing claiming that this whole thread is moot and what we see is only glue. As if Roland (or any other company) would be so dump to put glue on a battery that firmly sits in a battery holder... It's of course leaked electrolyte from the coin cell.

Recently got an MT-32, SC-55 and SC-88, glad i saw this post, will open them up and check before I turn them on

The MT-32 doesn't have an internal battery unless it has been modified. But you might want to look into replacing the caps on it at some point as there are kits available for the MT-32.
