Back up battery MC 12

I went to Step One today to order a back up battery for an older Irritrol MC 12. The one in a yellow metal cabinet.
The controller didn't have a battery at all. Just the standard battery clip like for a 9 volt. I'm thinking from memory it's the battery pack with three batteries in it.
Says on the controller NiCad battery.
The guy at the store said it's 54 dollars plus tax. I said cancel that.
What's the work around for this? Or the knock off part?
Any ideas?

I'd run it by Irritrol customer service. They seem to have long memories.
