K-r Battery Holder BH-109 Available @ Adorama
Posted By: Adam, 02-02-2011, 12:18 PM



39100 Pentax AA Battery Holder D-BH109 for KR DSLR Cameras

Looks like adorama is now stocking this accessory full-time; it's also started popping up on amazon albeit from a less trusted seller.

I was just on B&H site and they now have the D-BH109 for pre-order. Although it is $5 more than Adorama and no free shipping.

Thanks Adam, that's also cheaper than Amazon as well.

Can I get this for my K-7? I would love the ability to go to AAs for long trips off the grid without places to charge batteries...

Loren, as far as I know there's no such adapter for the K-7. Your best bet would be to buy the D-BG4 battery grip or one of the cheaper chinese knock-offs to use AA's. The knock-offs are not weather sealed though.

Looks like it's decent quality at least.

But OMG, look at the price. Terrible for something that should come standard with the camera.

If only they made one for the K-5. I could finally upgrade from my K200D

When will Pentax learn that people want AA ability in a weather sealed DSLR.

A substitute can be found on eBay which only costs $5 and works fine.

For $7 at Amazon, you can get a lithium battery that is lighter and lasts longer. If it came with the camera fine, but paying $30 for this....

There are no lithium batteries that come close to AA Eneloops in longevity. Get the $5 adapter from ebay and use eneloops, you will not regret it.
