Thanks, finally found them.....

Found a load on eBayUK, thank you. I did look before but I had obviously input the wrong search term :( I entered in exactly as you describe and this time loads were flagged up. I did notice that you need to be careful as there are 6 cell cases as well as 5 cell cases. No doubt the 5 cell will still work fine but perhaps not quite for as long without needing a recharge. Thank you.

I meant to add. A couple of months ago I purchased a replacement battery for my laptop. It was DOA :( The seller (eBay vendor) refunded me in full but told me to keep the battery and dispose of it as I wish. I nearly put it in the recycling... I am glad I didn't now because I shall take the outer casing off and find out just why it wouldn't charge. It may just have been a loose wire or duff cell. Hopefully the majority of the cells will be ok and I can then use them in this Instructable.

I agree with 'mikg', where do you get one of these battery cases. It's a great Instructable but useless without more information :(

Ah, thank you :) The reply was not there when I read this Instructable :) I'll check out eBay here in the UK.
