Anyone know companies that will recell batteries (Canon Scoopic 16M) for a good/cheap price?

I've read that the price is from $90 to $40 for one battery...hoping that the low-end prices still exist.

Look for a Batteries Plus+ store near you. My local one re-cells my Scoopic batteries for about $45 and they've done about 8 for me. They can rebuild just about any battery with modern cells or can match outdated ones if that is required.

You can print this page out for them if they need a reference...

I actually e-mailed them earlier, but got a response that they couldn't identify the particular brand or make. However, I will send them the link - Thanks very much for that, Will.

Here are the guys that have done it for me multiple times... I'm sure you could mail them the batteries but if there's a local store you'd save the postage. Maybe these guys could call your local shop and tell them what to do.
