Where to get replacement batteries for BT8500 handset?

The manual states "2 x AAA Ni-MH 750 mAh" are needed.


Where can these be purchased from?


When searching for 'BT8500 rechargable' on eBay UK, the following three results appear:


• £3.79 - BT8500 / BT6500 / BT 3510 / BT XT3500 2X 1.2V 1800mAh RECHARGEABLE BATTERIES

• £4.99 - 4 x Rechargeable NiMH 650mAh AAA Cordless Phone Battery for BT4500 BT6500 BT8500

• £4.99 - BT BT4500 BT6500 BT8500 4x 1.2V 1800 mAh AAA RECHARGEABLE BATTERIES BLUE


I'd rather not use eBay UK if possible, as you can't always be sure of the quality of the batteries.


Saying that, 1800 mAh cells would be better than the 750 mAh ones that come with the phone (longer lasting) - though that's presuming they're even compatible (I don't necessarily trust the eBay UK description stating they're compatible).

You can use any capacity of AAA rechargeable batteries 750mAh or above, but I would stick to well known brands so they are not likely to leak or explode.
