If they're cylindrical (and if the 'D size' means the same size a a
D-size primary cell (like a torch (flashlight) cell), then these sound
like 'Cyclon cells'. The smallest one of those is about the same size as
a D-cell and it's 2V, 2.5Ah.
Last time I needed some (for HP9114 disk drives and 110/110+ computers),
I had no torouble in getting them in the UK.
