I am having trouble finding replacement battery pack for purchase. Any suggestions?

Replace the ni-cad pack with a li-ion one. 4 each 18650 cells will give you 14.8vdc. If you use/buy a computer battery you’ll have enough cells for 2 repairs. Get the highest capacity cells you can, i.e. 2.6ahr or higher. Solder them all in series, charge it up and listen to it SCREEM. Works for me. (Reason for computer battery is the quality of the cells and they have tabs to solder to) mikey

There is a resistor there so the higher voltage will cause the resistor to melt. Did you receive your EE tech degree at an ITT school?

Was it a resister or a fuse? Just asking. Some small appliances have a safety fuse that resembles a resister.

Whatever the componentry there is always a reasonable overvoltage margin. Mikes post should be fine.
