    The alarm panel itself includes a charger, normally used to replenish the drain from the battery during power outages etc.

    For replacement batteries try:
    TLC (on-line and in-store) at
    CPC (on-line only, unless you're in Preston) at:

    You could also try dedicated security shops e.g. Gardiner etc.

    To replace the battery you will need the "engineer" code to disable the tamper circuit within the alarm, otherwise when you open the box the alarm will go off
