this is a NI-CD battery pack. I went to Radio Shack expecting to simply
find a cordless phone battery that I could use to replace it - the pack
appears to be nothing more than three AAA NI-CD cells in series.
Unfortunately, the only sort of phone batteries they carry are either
too big (AA's) or NIMH. I wouldn't imagine that it would work, but is it
possible to use NIMH batteries to replace the original pack?
Not likely. NiCd and NiMH have different charging procedures. NiCd
cells aren't hard to find; Digikey or Jameco are possibilities.
