Thank you, but I believe they are the wrong size. They are 2/3AA, but the
one needed is I believe 2/3A.  I know what a AA cell is, but I must admit
I've never come across an A cell, but I guess its bigger than a 2/3A.

My biggest concern about buying batteries is getting counterfeits. That's
why I would rather stick with a reputable supplier like Farnell, RS etc.
But I can't find anything local.


look to be battery specialists in the UK, but I have never come across them
before. I have emailed them, along with Panasonic directly. I've said to
Keysight, if they will sell me the battery, I will buy it from them. I know
Keysight is not going to be a cheap place to buy batteries, but given the
difficulty in getting one, I would not mind buying directly from Keysight.
But I am not paying nearly £300 for them to fit a battery.
