AA tray for K-50

So I just got a generic brand AA tray from eBay and am using it in my K-50... AND IT WORKS!

I paid like $5 for it. Quite amazing

It's so nice isn't it!
And I only paid $3 or so for a generic one.

Paid 7 bucks on Amazon and also ordered the Amazon basic rechargeable 2500 Mah batteries which also work great.

The one I had was exactly that - generic and between $3 and $7 - don't recall all the details. Worked perfectly.

I have one too. Anyone know how well the off brand ones last over time? My lithium ion isn't holding charge as well anymore so I think I'm going to try AA eneloops full time...

I've been using a generic $3 FeeBay one for over a year now, and it has performed flawlessly. Strong plastic, holds the batteries firmly, good quality contacts. No signs of trouble after a year.

Both the Eneloops, and the AmazonBasics AA High-Capacity Rechargeable Batteries (Black) are good durable choices with low internal discharge..
