Not stock related as such but I am desperately searching for a battery holder for a Pentax 645n - the holder that takes 6xAA batteries.  If anyone happens to find one in the back of the wardrobe and wants to sell it please let me know.  Otherwise the camera becomes a doorstop.

If that's the case, will one of these bring the camera back to life?

Thanks for the suggestion Brian and apologies for not replying sooner.  The item I am after is the one that takes 6 x AA batteries - I should have mentioned that in the original posting.  My Pentax is draining batteries very quickly - a new battery holder is the last resort in trying to sort out the problem before the camera is consigned to the bin.

I used to use one of those when I shot with a Pentax 645 and was able to shoot in winter, regardless of outside temps, by keeping it tucked inside my coat.

Gordon, the one I've linked to takes six AA batteries, but doesn't appear to be what you're looking for. Now I'm completely confused.

I assume one of these https://tinyurl.com/y2y53t9n

 

Most of these sorts of spares/hard to get parts seem to mostly come from Japan.  An Ebay search with email notification is best way to start.
