I've tried three different dealers on Amazon and received Energizer and Maxell brand batteries as A76 replacements. Trouble is, they're ALL just a bit thinner than the generic ones the "lights and sound" Saga Legends Artoo came with and don't fit in properly. I've blown over ten bucks so far.

Does anyone know of a generic supplier like the one Hasbro uses? If you have the figure, which brand works for you? I have three droids on standby waiting for new life to be breathed unto them by way of a screwdriver.

I know that Dollar Tree once carried a six-pack of that type of battery. Not sure if they still do, but I'd check with places like that and Big Lots that would have the really generic brands. Radio Shack may be of help, too.

Thanks, Jim! I'll give those or their equivalent a shot in my area.

Let me know how it works out. I have a couple droids with the same problem. :wink:
