EOTech battery pack conversion?

I recently came across a gently used 511.A65 (N-cell batteries).

Since the N and AA are both 1.5 volt batteries, can I take the N-cell pack off and install a AA-cell battery pack on to this sight?

Does EOTech even sell just the AA battery pack as an option or upgrade?

The lever that locks the battery housing to the body and the body itself for the 511 is too short for the 512/552 battery housing. Would be nice if someone did make a conversion kit for it. I'd buy one.

I would doubt that EOTech has a conversion pack to upgrade an "N" cell sight to a "AA". But, a call to EOTech would answer that question.
I personally wouldn't buy an "N" cell sight. I have two EOTech sights now, both "AA" models. However, if the price is right for the "N" cell model you are looking at, go for it and buy a stash of "N" cells to keep it running.
