It's the Molicel main battery pack.

Molicels are propritary rechargable Lithium batteries. From day
one they have been concerned with potential saftey issues,
especially when charging.

When they were introduced I was interested in using them in
portable radio applications as the had about twice the energy
density of NiCads. They refused to sell any individual cells
unless I was a big OEM, or bought my charger from them.

Another very bad sign was no other manufacturer had second
sourced the technology.

Recently I had heard of other saftey failuers and had vagiuly
thought Molicel had gone belly up.

So how do we get our brand new :-) batteries ?
