Sorry chap, you pm'd me on this one and I didn't get around to replying.
Prise the case apart with care (it will come apart). Source your NiCd batteries, you can buy connecting tabs on Ebay. Solder the tabs on as neatly as poss, obviously in the correct order.
Replace the batteries in the case and seal with a wipe of sikaflex. Cost-£9, Result- hardly needs charging now.
