Just try PHILIPS Semiconductor PCF8583 it's also a real time clock as DALLAS
DS1202 with I2C interface, 8-pin dip with real time clock (secs, mins,
hours, day of month, month, day of week, and year with leap year
compensation) and
256 bytes of static ram and also alarm. I already wrote I2C routine for PIC.

As I'm reading the data sheet,
  Current comsumption:   200uA MAX (operating mode)
                          50uA MAX at 5V (clock mode)
  Supply voltage:        2,5V to 6V (I2C bus active)
                         1,0 to 6V  (I2C bus inactive)

US price: don't know ...
