Another question. Have you guys tried those 1300 mAh batteries in your Kodak's ? With the original being 940 mAh and some of the generics being only 840 mAh the higher capacity ones seem to be the ones to look for.
Looks like a very fair price -
that also looks like the external charger I got -
it works really well.

One has to take third party aftermarket battery capacity with "a pinch of salt" - a 1300mAh battery ought to last nearly 55% longer than the Kodak OEM battery..... pretty dubious.

Think of it this way - the OEM battery is so outrageously expensive - so the profit margins would be really high - then they can afford to use the highest (safe) capacity - whereas the cheapo batteries have really low profit margins - how can they possibly afford to use a much better (read expensive) technology than the OEM?

Any way one looks at this - I have been getting about 85-8% the capacity of the OEM battery at 19% the price.
