GP Batteries lists them here : http://www.gpina.com/industrial/batteries/NiMH/NiMHspecs.htm - look for GP45NH down the page.

There was a ebay auction for something like that, but it was a few weeks ago.

They are available in Brazil, but shipping would be too expensive for this.

Do you have an estimative of price in Brazil, Renato? I'm interested, as I could find only 4 in BH...

Not expensive. If I recall correctly, around R$6 each, at Santa Ifigenia in So Paulo - two stores had them, but I do not have their names or phone.

STA-Eletronica should have it, but I could not find in their catalog. They also have N-Size alkaline at R$2.47. See http://www.sta-eletronica.com.br/loja/. Unfortunately they only accept orders above R$200 - if you need more expensive batteries...

I hate to say this, but to buy the NiCad 'N' cells on ebay is dumb! You can buy the best hi-capacity 230mah 'N' cells at Radio Shack.

Oh boy yes! If it's on eBay it must be special.

Actually, not only can you buy NiCad N cells at Radio Shack but you can also get NiMH N cells. You may have to check different Radio Shack stores as apparently not all stores carry them. They work great in my 41(s). Been using them for the past 4-5 years without problem. They appear rated to be a 1-to-1 match for their NiCad cells.

I see you point. Many readers of this forum do not live in USA, or anywhere close to a R-S store. Maybe Im really dumb .... but I could not find these batteries at R-S web site.

Sorry, Since I've got 5 RS stores within a 20 mile radius I don't use the web site very often its easier to order in store if I have to and I don't have to pay up front or with a credit card. The N-size NiMH rechargeables are often not on the Radio Shack web site. The Radio Shack part number is 23-521 and the cost was $7 or $8 (US) for a 2 pack. I tend to check the battery display whenever I'm in a RS store and if I see the N-NiMH packs I grab some.

Hello Renato, look at this: http://www.accu-profi.de/akkumulatoren_nimh_einzelzellen.php

It's a shop in Germany where you can get the GP 50 NH (500mA NiMH). They deliver worldwide, AFAIK.
