    6500/225 Power Mac. Has the bulkier 4.5 V alkaline battery. (Asking for a coworker)

    Does anyone search the net before they ask?

    A more inexpensive solution is to find a 3x AAA battery holder from/for an older PC. These holders use the same connector as that $12 battery and use 3 50¬˘ batteries for about the same lifespan (1 year).

    I've made them with a three AA battery holder soldering the old plug, the only extra caution i have is to cover them with automotive silicone, preventing a leak. The velcro add-ons can be customised, depending on the computer you use: some use the motherboard horizontal (most of 5xxx and 6xxx) and other use it vertically. (6400 for example)
    Using alkaline batteries the oldest one has three years and is still alive.
    That's a good alternative as here (in M?©xico) the 4.5 volts battery in unavailable and, if you can find it, it costs over $30 dollars
