Hi, can anyone tell me what model of battery fits the Pentax K2?

According to our camera database, the K2 uses two S76 batteries.

Your K2 can use two 44, 76 or 357 1.5V silver cells, or one CR 1/3N 3V lithium cell.
I would recommend buying a nationally advertised brand.
Various no-name Chinese batteries I have tried leaked.
