What Battery to use?

Posted 23:00:01, 06th September 2017   |   № 51

I'm trying to source a battery for Marty but have run into supply issues.. the one below is out of stock and the only other place I can find it is ebay (ordered and was lost in the post!)

So I'm looking for an alternative. Can someone help with something that will still fit in Marty?
