The S50 will not use any other battery type other than the battery that came with it (or third-party manufacturer that makes a suitable replacement like Energizer, etc) That is why they call it a proprietary battery. Also the original battery is rechargable, not one time use; you should get a couple of years worth of charge/discharge cycles out of it.
