These folks used to make battery belts for the Beaulieu 4008, but I can't find it on their site:http://www.widescreen-centre.co.uk/Catalogue/Motion_picture_division.html
Scroll down on the following link for some info on battery packs:
These folks make battery packs:
I found this in my notes regarding concerns about Beaulieu batteries before purchasing a used camera:
naturally, all the original
batteries are dead. so, what power supply comes with the camera. if it is a
recell, ask how many times and how long it has been used. even recelled
batteries if misused can die quickly. if it has a battery pack, ask what type.
i have seen dozens of differant power supply solutions from 8 c-size batteries
to one car sized battery. some do not power both the camera and the lens. if
having a power lens is important, then make sure the power pack has both 7 and
4.2 volts. also, make sure the dummy plug screws in securely to the camera
body. make sure the dummy plug/socket is put together correctly, and not some fragile scotch taped rig that will cause you aggravation. if the camera has a
recelled battery, have the seller check the ac power adapter. plug it into the
camera and have seller charge the battery through the camera itself. although
not required, it is nice.

And lastly, everything you could possibly wish to know about these cameras:
