Default Zen Sleek Photo -- Equivalent Battery?

Okay, I finally got the time to take apart my Zen Sleek Photo. I've ordered a circuit to allow me to use a flash memory card to replace the aging hard disk, but I really want to replace my 5 year old battery, too. However, I'm learning that the battery is getting scarce -- several of my usual sources are out of stock and don't know when/if they'll have more ...

So, can anyone tell me if there's an alternative? I don't mind if it isn't quite as strong (i.e., a little less than 750 mah) but it needs to fit in the case and work properly with the Sleek's circuitry -- especially for charging.

Thanks!

I've been away for a while, but thought I'd at least report back. No luck finding a battery, and no supplier could recommend a substitute.

I'll miss it -- my Zen is still going pretty strong, although it does need charging a little more frequently. The Vision:M is still playing, and it looks like a much better candidate for a battery and CF card replacement. Still, the Sleek's controls were a little less sensitive than the V:M's, and I appreciated that.
