My inclination is to remove the HERO battery, open it up (nearly 
Dremeling is necessary), and have it rebuilt by Batteries Plus using 
comparable NiCads with modern amperage. That's what I did for an IBM 
Simon phone last year and it worked fantastically well. Rebuilt the two 
halves of the pack with epoxy and then sanded it flat.

Alex, let's talk (off-list) about when you can make another trip up here.
