Yes, the cache batteries should have held the contents of the write cache for the few hours you were without power.

The adapter slot must be powered on in order for the batteries to charge from electrical power. Depending on system type, this may mean the LPAR must be active (to DST at least) for the trickle charging to occur. With the cache batteries in normal condition, the contents of write cache should not be lost if you have to go multiple days without power.
