Spare Battery for K10D

I noticed that B&H is out of spare batteries for K10D's. Anybody seen these things available elsewhere yet?

Thanks,

Jerry

Aussie shipment arrives after 17th December

I am waiting for that one actually. Though minolta battery is compatible for k10d too, hence it would be cheaper.

I did note that k10d battery last a long time storing a lot of charge!

Wouldn't it be nice if all the manufacturers got together and decided to standardise their batteries? *sigh* Never gonna happen.

I went looking for a NP400 locally, as a back up, and found them to be non existent in the area. I've been told that they are discontinued. I guess I'll wait for B&H to get the Impacts back in stock.

True, you would get 8% fewer shots per cahrge for 1/5 the price of Pentax NP-400.

Here's some rated higher than pentax
