I think I'll get a dead battery one at a garage sale and solder in a new battery.

Note this:

I've also seen pages on how to make a battery pack with c sized nigh cells.

We have a housekeep that comes twice a month for the heavy cleaning.

Not sure if this is intentional or just subconscious on her part.

Work? I don't have time to work....I'm retired.
