How to power an LX motor drive w/o battery pack?

Title says it all - I picked up an immaculate motor winder for the LX, but it didn't come with a battery pack (err, a working battery pack). How might I go about trying to power the motor drive? I know the three main ways (the battery pack, the battery handle, and the on-hip battery pack), but is there another suggestion someone would offer?

If you have a NiCd battery pack that will not charge suggest you hang onto it.
I've read there are places that can fit it with new functioning replacement cells.

Batteries+ in my area will do that kind of service. At least they will with ultrasonic toothbrushes!

I thought about getting the battery replaced, but it looks like there was some amount of corrosion within the pack itself, so I don't think it makes sense to replace just the battery since the pack itself may be nonfunctioning even with a new battery.

What I was really hoping for was someone who might have some creative engineering chops suggest a non-OEM way of powering the pack… it's a bit out there, but I figured I'd try.
