My to-do list has me doing the rounds of all my machines to check them all for the batteries. I'd like to replace rather than remove though, but that could get expensive at about £10-12 pounds per machine for the cordless phone battery packs sold by Maplin. Maybe there is a better alternative, I should go and take a look.
