From a Bang&Olufsen Dealer.
I hope they are still available.

I was just in contact with the B&O service in Finland and they told me that it shows as an expired spare part... Doesn't some sort of consumer law dictate that spare parts should be availlable 5 years after EOL for consumer products.

Last I checked they were available... at a pretty ridiculous price.  I think it was about £140.

I stripped one down (battery) and found the supplier - it's a company in Germany.  I emailed them and asked if they'd be interested in making another small run of them (say, 500) as B&O no longer made them, and they didn't supply them to B&O any more.

No reply.

I did try..........

What kind of a battery is it? Provided it is some fairly standard NiMH cells welded in series in some odd physical shape, there are services who can rebuld them. It's not exactly cheap as you could guess from being mostly manual labour, but nothing near £140, I would expect.

Even many Li-ion battery packs can be rebuilt with new cells.
