I used my Sharp MD-MT 80 mini disc recorder for several years with great satisfaction . I then spent a long time in hospital when I did not use it and found that it did not work when I tried to use it again . Because it was clear that the recorder was not producing the power required to function I bought a new electrical mains power adaptor but then discovered that the batteries would not charge. I have unsuccessfully searched the internet trying to buy replacements for the AD-N70BT rechargeable Nickel-Metal Hydride batteries. Both the user manual and the information written upon the back of the recorder tell me “A rechargeable battery other than the AD-N70BT cannot be charged. I will be very grateful if you can inform me about where I can buy new batteries which are suitable for my Sharp MD-MT 80 . Or perhaps there are batteries, other than the recommended AD-N70BT rechargeable Nickel-Metal Hydride batteries, which will bring my MD-MT 80 back to life?

click here £20 for a battery seems a bit steep unless its for a pack of 4.
Even then you should be able to pick up a pack of 1.2v AA NiMh batteries much cheaper e.g. Duracell rechargeableplus, the bigger the mAh rating the blonger they last in the machine, don't go for less than 2500mAh
