Pros: It's a Pentax!, reliable
Cons: Weak at 940mAh, price when purchased separately

This is the Pentax battery that comes with your Q and Q10. It's reliable but it's rated at only 940mAh, which is pretty low for this size battery. As a comparison, my Motorola phone battery is a wee bit slimmer and a wee bit longer but is roughly the same overall volume and it's rated at 1170mAh. How long this battery lasts really depends on a lot of factors, not the least of which is how cold it is- colder weather makes for shorter battery life.

SR takes a lot of power, as do the processing features like the various correction modes. If you turn off the distortion correction and others, put SR on the brief setting, and use fresh batteries each outing it should last noticeably longer.

There is a really good thread here on this issue:
