It's a rechargeable battery if you have the old pack I think you can recell it.

The GX680 and GX680II used the same rechargeable battery (7.2V). The GX680III used 3× CR123A batteries. It'd help to know which camera variant you have. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fuji_GX680#Accessories

Check out this YouTube video. It illustrates an adaptation that can be used to restore your battery pack, that is if you can not find a stock replacement.

A picture of the pack would help me estimate how hard a job that would be. I am quite sure it's 6 NiCad or NiMH cells but what size? I have to have a picture of the pack at least. Does the pack has any screws or it is ultrasonically welded?

I see on Ebay they sell the battery holder for the GX680 which hold 6 AA batteries. I wonder if the OP can use it?

If all fails try batteries.com. They have always been able to help me find those hard to find batteries.
