My battery isn't holding a charge anymore, so I need a new one... Don't they exist anymore?

Like all rechargeable batteries, the one that comes with your play and charge kit will eventually fail to hold a charge for very long. Mine currently lasts about 20 minutes. I thought I'd just buy a replacement... They used to sell just the battery pack for $9.99.  I know, because I bought one. I had two battery packs and one charge cable. The thing is, I can't find it anywhere anymore.

It looks like the only way to replace the battery is to buy a whole new play and charge kit. This sucks... It's not just the price that pisses me off, it's that I have a perfectly good charge cable that doesn't need replacing. Happy Earth day everyone, have some extra waste!

I decided to buy a charge station (comes with a battery pack), so now I have 3 batteries (only one that works), one charge station and a play & charge cable. If I want to replace one of the other batteries I'll end up with another cable... and so on until the XBox 420 comes out I should have 18 cables by then. Thanks MS.

I've seen some third party ones, but they have contacts on the back for charging while still on the controller, doesn't seem these would work with my charging station.
