I didn't see a reply to your question, (did I err?) so I'll give it a go:

The above links to an eBay listing for a MessagePad 2000/2100 AA battery tray (or "sled," whichever you prefer).

It's not a very exciting piece of hardware, but my own thinking is that the eBay seller is offering it at a Very Exciting Price Point. :) Which is why I feel obliged to point out that I am not affiliated with the seller, cannot vouch for them, and merely offer the link as a quick-and-dirty way of familiarising you with the item in question.

If you don't already have one, a WTB post on the list might net you one at a much more soothing price.
