Pentax Li-Ion batteries overview 2003-2013.

Out of curiosity I made an inventory which batteries are used on Pentax camera's, to see if there are any patterns. The list below is derived from the manuals on the Ricoh Japan web site. The Optio camera's are not included (too many of them).

All batteries are of type Li-Ion. The standard CR-V3 battery is replaced by custom types in various configurations after 2007.

It seems Pentax is trying to re-cycle a battery type for as many camera's as possible. An interesting series is K7, K5, K-01, K5-II(s), K3, all using the D-LI90. Another example is the D-LI92 which is first applied in the X-70 (2009) and later re-used in the WG's.

A Pentax speciality is also that most camera's can adopt AA batteries, direct, with an optional battery holder, or with a battery grip. I think this is a strong point and well appreciated by many of us.

This list can be used as is, but if you have any supplementary info or know-how's you can post here too.

Battery D-LI90 with matching charger.




K-50 (with DA 40 XS) and battery holder D-BH109. This holder is suitable for the Kr, K-30, K50 and K500.

You made ​​a big mistake, Pentax K-30 uses battery D-LI 109, 7.4V, 1050mAh battery and D-109 BC for Lithium-Ion Battery / / top photo is totally wrong for K-30 and adapter D-BH109 for rechargeable AA batteries as the lower photo correctly show for K-30

The first photo simply shows the D-LI90 + D-BC90. I don't say it's for the K-30.

I apologize Kobayashi.K , you put a picture with the camera adapter for AA batteries that corresponds to it and charger with lithium batteries in the same context that does not match with the camera, I thought the picture with lithium battery charger has to do with the attached photo cameras and other that mentioned: Kr, K-30, K50 and K500, sory wrong I understand your message, you be more precise next time ;-)
