There are some shops that specialize in batteries but I don't know if they
are in your town. Youcan try www.mcmaster.com and go to page 706 to see if
one thee is what you want. Or do a Google search for battery suppliers.
Commnents: Small motorcycle battery would probably be OK but cost
spacing and whether the built in charger would be suitable should be
How old was the battery? In light indoor service like that, where it
is basically kept 'floating' at full charge, until an emergency
occurs, one might think it should last for many years? Our hard used
winter and summer 1995 Japanese truck battery is now 12 years old and
although has reduced capacity due to age works OK down to temperatures
of minus 10 Celsius = about 12 degrees Fahrenheit.
BTW why did the battery fail? Age? Over-charging? Not charging at all?
Excessive heat? Power from AC supply failed, battery got discharged
and then was not recharged promptly? Etc. Other wise a new one may go
the same way?
A few thoughts anyway.
Ok. This isn't Markham but maybe it's not too far
for you to go. Matheson, 1 block west of dixie.small
strip plaza. about 5 electronics store. at least one of them
sells SLA batteries for cheap. 5AH should be 10 bucks.
There must be electronic stores in markham or agincourt.
now i remember. any rc shop should have these batteries.
there's one on sheppard just east of kennedy on the north
side in a small plaza. kinda expensive tho. will that be close
enugh for you?
