Have you all tried Interstate? I got a battery for my old VHS cam there a while back. You can order online but many cities have local stores where you can bring the camera in and make sure the battery will fit before you buy it.

You could always get a custom battery from an electronics shop - user the camera's original AC adapter and cut the other end before it reaches the big clunky AC/DC converter part (the thing that plugs into the wall), attach that cable end to the battery that has been custom-built, even into a giant belt-based pack.  Lasts longer!

I had one of these contraptions for my modern XL-1 and the charge lasted for days - a car-size battery built into a fishing tackle box.

Does anyone know where I could find batteries for it on the internet?

Much appreciated
