>> Does the Supercharger use DRAM or does it use non-battery-backed static RAM?
It used 3 6116 static ram chips. Each chip had 2K bytes of memory. This gave
a total of 6K. There was also a 2K ROM build in for the cassette bootstrap

Adding DRAM to a VCS is a nightmare, I worked on a project in 1980-81 that
hadd a cable TV interface to the VCS with 64K of DRAM and a Z80 to allow it
to play network games. The project was eventually scrapped. Wahh!!!
