I got a GW-200-2 (from 2001 or 2002) which I started to neglect around 2014. I never wore it for close to 3 years and it was kept inside a Pelican case with no access to sunlight at all. It wasn't a surprise then that when I opened the case at the beginning of 2017, it was on its last legs (power reserve mode with almost no juice left). Just last month I started wearing my G-Shocks again and had to replace the GW's solar battery because it could no longer reach full charge after repeated sun baths. So if I hadn't neglected it, I think it would have carried on with the original battery to 2017 and on. Local Casio changed the battery for $15 including working cost. Also changed the bezel to a fresher but still used one, I couldn't find a replacement band anywhere so I'm planning to perhaps fit it with a GW-225E resin set a friend offered me for some see-through action.
