LIFE or LIPO pack for Futaba T6xas

I've been looking for a LIFE or LIPO pack to replace the NICAD pack in my Futaba T6XAS transmitter. Does anybody know who has these in a flat pack that will fit my radio? The NICAD pack is a Futaba NT8JY NiCd 8-Cell 9.6V 600mAh. It seems the flat packs are hard to find. Help much appreciated.

FYI, you do not want to charge a Lipo inside your TX. If you go Lipo you need to remove it every time you charge it.

Put an Eneloop pack in it. They're 1900-2000mAh, they don't self-discharge (for all practical purposes), and they're NiMH so they're basically a drop-in replacement for the NiCd pack. In other words, you can continue to charge them in-TX and your transmitter's battery monitor/gauge will continue to work like it's supposed to.

I currently have 4 transmitters, two of which I use all the time, and they all have Eneloop packs in them. I love them and wouldn't change to another battery type for any reason.
