Default Excal Battery Replacement recommendations?

Hi There.
I need to replace my Excal II battery.... finally, after 7 years!

I'd love recommendations here on who I should contact for the best Price and (hopefully) free shipping to Hawaii.

Thank you!!

Lipo is actually the one that if you run it down to low it swells and dies. I fly rc airplanes and have much experience. Li on is a better choice as they are lighter, have a higher mah capacity and can be run down quite low. Life is another choice, but my experience with them is limited and all that assuming they can be adopted for this machine or are actively manufactured.

IF and when my batteries for my Xcal need to be replaced I will go with the RNB EX-3000. Much longer detecting time between charges and they do not self discharge while waiting for you to go detecting again.
