You can already buy them. I have an extra one.

We have seen a few packs leak for no apparent reason so are inclined to recommend carefully pushing the pack tightly in place, and perhaps wiggle slightly before clamping in place. The thought is battery contacts which are only on one side may occasionally prevent complete seating on the housing.

Ike,

Can you upload a pic of the battery? Is it the back half of the DS125 or is it something I need tools to install?

Back section of the strobe is the battery pack and is attached with a simple toggle mechanism.
