Local store ( Ford Electronics, Southern CA ) has " D " size rechargeable
batteries with tabs spot welded on either end, 4.5 AmpHour for $10 .
Shipping might be a deal breaker... I've used the " C " and " AA " sizes to
replace dead cells in battery packs by solder the new tabs to the old tabs
of the cells surgically removed.
Best regards, Steven
