The cells for these were very expensive as they were quite large. I would look into replacing this with two AAA long life batteries in series, with a suitable holder

There was also a modification to the main board, by the cutting of a track near the perimeter, to ensure the battery did not go flat prematurely.

I will do some checking

I need a picture of the underneath to give you an idea of which track to cut, the cell however is the round silver thing (with yellow plastic cover) that stands off about 8mm from the board on two contacts
