Can anyone be so kind as to what NiMh battery cell to use to rebuild the battery packs of my HP82162A, HP82143A and HP82161A cassette drive? All I need is a reference and a supplier.
Please do not start an argument about NiCd vs NiMh, my mind is already set.

Thank you so much for your time.


for HP82143A etc. packs I am using following cells with very good results:

Those are LSD cells, so self discharge rate is only around 15-20% each year where as default NiMH/NiCD cells are completely (self) discharged and ruined after such a period without recharging (collector items like old HP calculator stuff normally are not used on a daily base).

I feel there is also a version with solder tails around. Sorry, no link.

For classics and woodstock series I prefer


for same reason.

Of course, contrary to akkuplus (which I can recommend, too) you have to assemble, weld or solder packs by yourself.

Best regards,

for same reason
