Hi I found some today from this company in UK, AA Batteries, Battery Chargers, Camcorder Batteries, Camera Batteries, iPod Chargers

Only 10.99 each with free delivery. ordered at 11am today got e-mail at 1pm telling me they have been shipped and should have them tomorrow.

Thanks for all the info guys.

Good for you! I am sure you will be perfectly happy with the battery & the charger. In fact, I actually ordered a similar charger from a company in California yesterday with similar service . . . ordered on Monday & scheduled UPS delivery is tomorrow.

You can put the extra money in a jar to save for future LBA attacks . . .

Enjoy your trip and please remember to share some of your photos . . .

I just ordered and received two batteries and grip from Cameta Camera. It was my fault for not checking beforehand if they were Pentax, but the description was throwing around the Pentax part number.

They showed up today and they're CTA at 1350mAh. I'm split between keeping them and sending them back. Since it was a kit, they won't just take the batteries back and let me keep the grip. I'm short on time when I need the extra batteries, so I'm about to charge them up and put them through their paces to see how many shots I can get per charge.

If you check around you can still find the Konica-Minolta branded NP400's for a fraction of the Pentax branded ones. I've ben using these fro a few months with no noticable difference. Dave

Correct me if I am wrong. Just for the record. The Konica Minolta battery seems to be the same as the stock Pentax DL-150 other than the milliamp/hour rating. Wouldn't this same battery fit the Sony Alpha 100 also? The reason I ask is , I am looking for a spare battery for my K10D, but my co-worker who owns an A100 Sony needs a spare too and in my research, I seemed to come to the conclusion they are both the same in these two cameras.

I have several NP400's well over 2 years old that have been recharged many times. I use them in my K10D with no issues and they seem to give the same charge life as the Pentax brand.
