I have 10.0.343 and as far I can see there is no non-ideal battery in the database. I read the same thing in the reference material that you did, but you have to realize that they use one manual for all versions and somethings listed in this component reference is only available in certain version. I would say thiat this is a component that would be in the education version just like a few others that are listed in this document.
In my opinion the Power Pro Version should have everything in it from all the other tiers including the educational version. After all it is supposed to be the highest level of Multisim and to not include everything in it kinda goes against what it is supposed to be.
The only thing I can tell you is to try the acadwemic version and see it it is in there or you could model it using a large capacitor in series with a large resistor like I have done in the past. Also, you might look on the web to see if you can find a model for a non-ideal battery and create your own component for it.
Other than that there isn't much else that can be done. I hope I have helped.

I would have to agree with Chris on this one. Power Pro should be all inclusive. It should have everything in it including anything in the educational version.
This is to Chris,
There is a rudementary way to simulate a rechargable battery. This is with a series R/C circuit. The Cap and Resistor have to be quite large to simulate the charging cycle, but it works somewhat. It isn't perfect, but when testing a battery charging circuit it works well enough and is better than just a load resistor or trying to use the potentiometers. I know there is probably a better alternative than this, but for me it is the simplest.
