Sega Game Gear batteries (was: Interesting Spanish scan for the web)

I have found this in a Spanish magazine called "Superjuegos" in the nº10.

Sega batteries for Game Gear, in the text put that they are ecologic batteries.

Very interesting. Would love a set of those for my collection.

Does anyone know if these were actually produced and where they were available ?

Thanks for posting !
