Here's a 3rd party battery that claims to be 100% compatible and doesn't need its own charger at mailbox.net. I have not tried it.

I do note it states 1600 mAh instead of 1800.

The picture of the battery shows 1800 and 7.4 volts. For the price, it may be worth trying one of these. Price is (currently) $34.25, not $29 like it says on the blog.

Anyone able to give a review of this item?
