    Some companies "obsolete" the batteries so if your batt spoil, it will put you in a diff spot whether to buy a new one or find for a batt.

    There are three possible replacements for this PX400 cell (discontinued):

    the equivalent silver oxide cell, the S400PX.
    the equivalent zinc air cell, the WeinCELL MRB400.
    a voltage reducing adapter, the H-B adapter and a silver oxide 377 cell

    Can give Unicell a try.... they are at Sim Lim Square 2nd floor on the 'outer ring' of shops with less traffic...... they specialize in camera, video, laptop, RC hobbyist etc etc batteries.... quite a candy store for the battery afficionado kekeke

    They also solder and heat-wrap together custom rechargeable battery configurations
