It depends on if the backup power source to the DS1302 is rechargable or not
and the maximum charge current for it.
If it's not rechargable use 0.
If it is rechargable you can choose to have 1 or 2 diodes and
2k, 4k or 8k ohm resistor to reduce the charge current.

On a devboard_lx (with capacitor) I suggest: 6
Imax = (3.3v-0.7V)/4kohm = 0.65mA
(changing to 5 giving Imax = (3.3v-0.7V)/2kohm = 1.3mA
 would probably be ok to)

On a devboard_82 (with non-rechargable battery): 0
