Default New 5060

Just got a C-5060, and it's great! I am former Miranda/Exakta <1980, Nikon (>1980) user and Kodak/Sony videocam enthusiast. QUESTIONS: How good are the teleconvertors for the 5060? What are the battery options (can I make an external battery pack of NiMH rechargeables, 7.25 or 8.7 v)?
BTW, the prints, as promised are of silver-halide quality!

Oly is showing a "Power Battery Holder" part #B-HLD20, which I've seen on line for as low as $94 and will hold 2 of their LiIon batteries. It appears that it's set up so one of the batteries sits vertically and slides up into the exisitng bazttery compartment and I suspect the other lies horizontally in the unit. Supposedly it also houses a shutter release connection and a zoom lever. The Olympus Emporium shows the device but they want full retail.
Not I....... Most docs I've seen shy away from using the NiMh in this camera at all. Personally I would't want to risk using them, even tho I also own 3 sets for my Coolpix.....
