A few $. Interstate Batteries and others run retail store fronts.

They sell cam corder, model aircraft, etc., batteries.

They can spot-weld tabs on if you bring the original - usually, they can 
duplicate what you have.

If it's a common button battery in a holder, many drug stores and camera or 
watch shops will have them, for instance, CR2032 is a common one.

IF you have one soldered and heat shrink over it, use a pair of hemostats 
on the lead. Unsolder one at a time, take to store with you. The hemostats 
will prevent heat reaching the cell. LI does not like to be heated!
