The battery was kind of a standard item, like I said Sony used to use the same batteries in their camcorders and also the Sony magic links, and I don't think a AA battery tray would work as the AA's don't put out enoug juice. Thankfully the backup battery is a standard cr123a lithium battery.
Don't worry about bothering me, I like to talk about the rover :)
