Your copies get a little sticky at warmer days, and the pressure inside
the binder is doing the rest.

I guess that you are right when you say that *any* batteries cause
corrosion over time. I never saw batteries made of *one* piece of metal
enclosure. There must be some opening in that case to get the two poles
(as wires) to the outside world. Et voil?: there you have the weak spot
that eventually will cause a leak!
BTW an other place toi check for leaky batteries are DECstations and
VAXstations (or ...servers). They also have a NiCad (!!!!) "on board".
