Replacing ICOM 271/471 Ram Batteries

I am concerned about the longevity of my Icom 271/471 internal batteries.
These have an unknown age. I have been told that these can be replaced by
first temporarily connecting a new battery in parallel with the existing one,
removing the old battery, fitting a new one, and finally disconnecting the
temporary one. Has anyone had any experience with this maneuver ? Sounds
scary, but theory says it should be ok.....
