    Yes, it's possible. Farnell and RS components sell some 1 Farad 2.5V capacitors. It's hard to say if they are leak proof. I would place the capacitor a few mm above the pcb and fill the area between the capacitor and the pcb with some silicone.

    Why do you want to refit it?

    It holds the time for like an hour or 2. Anymore and you have to reset it (just like you would without the cap). If you leave it plugged in, it won't lose the time anyway.

    Some people just want to keep their stuff as original as possible.
