I also found the AAs gave me more shots than the Li-ion.

But yeah, there are some on Ebay for $11-16 shipped now, which is pretty close to the $10 I gave to the forum members.
how many more shots are you getting? ive been using mine in my DSLR for about 2-3 weeks now and the battery is still full. simply amazing!

The AA or the Li-ion?

I didn't keep my K-r long enough to do an extensive comparison, but I probably got ~800 shots with the AAs and maybe 400-500 with the li-ion? Don't quote me on that though...

Have to agree there- I find AA's are better, plus I bought one of your adapters (hawk1500) off ebay and its excellent- I tend to use it all the time and carry the lithium battery as a back up. At the very least its an added bit of flexibility
yeah that's what I did when I had the K-r too, used the AAs and had the li-ion as the backup. It helped that I had a TON of AAs since I came from K100d/DS/K200d.

I have a ton of AA's too -I have children!- Not sure about numbers of shots but I found the AA's would last about 2-3 days and the Li-ion was lucky to last 1.
