5-700 shots out of a battery

The battery is also lighter than 4xAA. I have 3 sets of eneloops and still haven't got the battery holder for my K-30, I have a 3rd party spare battery instead.

I have started to like camera that can be charged through USB, then it's easy to get a powerpack that can be used for charging multiple devices.
A powerpack with 12000mAh usually cost less that a original battery from Pentax, and the powerpack holds more than 6 times as much energy.

I didn't realize the battery lasts that long.

Or, for less money you can get a K-30. It's the same camera for all intentions and purposes. I think the supply of NOS K-30s is still decent, is it not?
No K-30s from B&H or Adorama, but several Amazon resellers have them. I just got mine last week.
