[chbot] LiPo 1200mAh 3.7V

I am looking for a few (2--5) LiPo batteries, around 1200 mAh 3.7 V 
with 2 mm JST connector, size about 50 x 35 x 7 mm.

The BOM calls for 
<https://nicegear.nz/product/lithium-ion-polymer-battery-1200mah> but 
they are out of stock with no ETA -- they seem to be tricky to bring 
into the country at this time.

Spare lithum cells seem tricky to buy from overseas. We buy AA Li-ion 
batteries in pairs inside cheap-as torches (and throw away the garbage 
housing) so they are shipped as consumer items, rather than spare 
batteries. But I have not found an off-shore source for these LiPos in 
a consumer device.

I have looked at a few online hobby shops -- drones often use small 
lipos -- but have not had any success.

Fairly urgent (10--14 days is when other offshore items are arriving), 
and I am happy to pay for DHL or similar shipping, but if they are 
really not available in NZ, we will have to think of an alternative.

Does anyone have any suggestions?
