Just a quick update... battery finally went flat today after a good few weeks. Charged it up for 3 hours (was only planning on two due to overcharging worries) but it did a great job and is now back up and charged and very bright indeed. Leaving it for days or weeks would surely knacker the cell, but a few hours is all you need and it works a treat.

Original one will be fine, but this was done with a general purpose adaptor I had. I just set it for 12v DC (as per the original) and let it go to work. It is a three pin plug 240v model rather than the standard two pin 110v Brinkmann one, so less hassle to use.

Thought I'd post his reply here just incase anyone else may be wondering or be in the same boat as me.

It's easy, just a red and black wire where the old battery was, swapped for the new one. I was so rushed to check it worked I didn’t even bother soldering it and the twist connection is holding fine. Pretty straightforward, taking apart the case can be a bit more fiddly though.
