The Battery for the Enhanced Nextion Display.

The CR1220 Battery

 The CR1220 Battery
This battery is used to keep the Real-Time-Clock, RTC on the Nextion Enhanced Display alive when the display is powered off. NOW, here's why not to do this. This clock has been found not to be very accurate over a 24 hour time frame, some displays loosing 5 seconds over 24 hours. SO, I show this here for completeness and for those who see the battery holder on the Nextion Display and think it needs to have a battery to work. It doesn't need the battery to function with the HotSpot / Repeater.
