   Your chances of finding another battery are slim. Even if you find one
it will be old and probably won't last long. My suggestion is to take it
to one of the battery places that rebuild batteries and have them replace
the cells in your old battery. There is a place in Sanford, Florida that I
have used a lot and that I'm very happy with. Their name is TNR, I don't
have their phone number handy but you can get it from directory info. They
use good quality batteries so their batteries will usually last a lot
longer than the original ones since the OEMs usually use the cheapest junk
they can find.
