"Zij hadden niet de goede batterijen gevonden." Would this be acceptable as well, or is it strangely worded? What if someone said "zij hadden de goede batterijen gevonden?" Could you reply with the sentence I wrote to emphasize " No, they did NOT..."

Why not 'juiste batterijen'? In this case it's just as accurate.
