Default 6490 Battery - kodak brand vs others

Hi all,

First post, but love the reading the forums. I have just recently purchased (but not yet received) the dx6490 as being extremely impressed with my dx3600.

I am wishing to purchase another battery for it (which I can get with charger for 33 from amazon) and was wondering if anyone has some experience with non-kodak brand klic 5001 batteries?
Are they all the same? Does a charge of 1800mAh make much difference over 1700mAh?

I wish to get another battery because I don't want to be caught short at any time (sometimes might be long waits between charges) and found that carrying 6-8 AA's for my dx3600 was at times not at all overkill.

Thanks heaps,

Jarrod

I can tell you this,,,,

If you have a problem with your new DC and you used a cheapy aftermarket battery,that leaked,etc,,,,,Kodak will in all likelyhood cancel/void your warranty...they`ll want to see the battery that damaged the DC,,,

Do you really think it`s worth the risk for the few dollars it would cost to get the right(Kodak branded) battery...

i`d say no to buying some offshore junk to save a buck,,,considering you went to the trouble of paying for a good/fairly expensive DC in the first place..

Just my opinion,,,but good advice if you think about it...

I picked up an original Kodak battery, same as the one that came with the camera for $21 shipped from the internet. I haven't had to use it yet but knowing I have it if needed is the way to go.

Ok my friend Rtif1, here's the obvious question. Where on the internet did you get the kodak battery for $21?

Thanks,

John

Hi John, I can't find the invoice but I will try to search the internet again and find the place. It is the same battery that comes with the camera. I know I got it from a battery store and not a camera store. I will let you know. Rick
