Default Visar slim batteries no longer exist?

I just bought some old Visars to play with, because I remember toying with one in the 90's and it was so slim and tiny. My search for slim batteries is coming up dry. The OEM part number search returns aftermarket fat batteries. Does anyone know where to procure even a slightly working used slim battery for a Visar? A fat battery on a Visar is not compact.......thanks!

backup plan......slim battery on EX500.

No. I tried looking myself with no results. However, there IS a Li-Ion Slim battery available on Ebay for like $16. Myself, and many other Batlabbers have bought these batteries with good results.

The Li-Ion one I saw is the size of the thick batteries.......but I am assuming it is much lighter?

Run the battery number. Sometimes people list them by the number. Sometimes you may find NOS ones. They should be fine if they are no more than 6 years old.

Well, I found some OEM ones advertised for over $80 each, but I assume they just didn't clear their webpage after NLA. Also found some for $30 from China, but they have a minimum order of $150........so unless anyone wants to do a group purchase of their products.......

I found some OEM. Nimh from 2011 for 38 usd. Also some from 2003 for cheaper. You may just have to go with the bigger batteries.
