ES II with motordrive


I am the happy owner of a very nice and clean ES II with a motor drive.

Does anyone know where it would be possible to get my hands on batteries and charger for the motor drive?

And what sort of batteries does the ES II use?

And does any one own a copy of the user manual on pdf that can be passed on?

The ES II takes 4 1.5v silver oxide batteries. Look for the Energizer 357 SR44 or equivalent.

Thanks for the answer.

But does any one know where to find batteries for the motor drive? And a charger?

Do you have the original batteries that were in the battery pack? If you have or can find (or make an equivalent to) the AA adapter things should be fairly straight forward, otherwise I expect the rechargeable battery pack will have to be rebuilt with new cells.

This article seems to cover what you need to know:
