Not a battery, a capacitor, and you have 2 options:
1) Add a battery with a charging circuit, an example here 2) Get a capaciter rated for the same volts but with a higher microfarad rating, also talked about in the above article.

There is another option Leave the plug in the wall socket. If this is just the normal length of time and then it needs resetting and you can't leave it plugged in then just set the clock before you use it. It only takes about 20 seconds

Or find an ntp server and setup evox to auto adjust it's time via ntp.
