Well, Actually the lid holding the battery seems not to prevent the camera from working. So, it might be possible to connect an external battery with a higher capacity.
I haven't tried it myself the the HD700 does have a 5v DC IN port on the back, you might be able to plug in a battery pack there.

I am yet to try , andsoon I may/ the lower rear has a jack for dc charging .

you may try connecting a number of batts and holster a adapter with a wire you will get a greater batt life.

For example, with my Panasonic DV cam, I cut open the existing battery, then added more batteries in parallel. The batteries were stored at the back of the helmet (so that it would be balanced better). I had 9 hours of continuous power with that system.

This might be possible to do with the Sanyo? Anyone tried that? I attempted to find higher capacity batteries without any succes. MY guess is that these batteries are thicker.

Completely forgot about the DC charge in.
That would be the easiest way to go.

I think that this one would work. It seems to have already the right plug too!
9800mAh, output is 5V, 700mA ($11.74 shipped: http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.3303)

looks good 60 mins of filming can be good for some. I happened to be at a place I shot everything imaginable on/off the cam went 5 sec vids 10 sec vids and stills mostly. I only got around 4 hours of enjoyment if I had that type of back up, or a modded one I would have had no problem filling up the 2 gig card.. otherwise a little longer battery life is needed

There are good replacement accus (db-l40) under 5 eur.
But see to it that it has the newest info ship and use an external charger.
I have three extra batteries and thats enough power for shooting some hours.
For me the extra pack and cable would be annoying.

I agree that the extra pack would be annoying, but for my application (helmet cam) this is all I need. Plus, my cam will be into an UDW housing... so changing batteries will be tough. I want it to be all the time on or in standby.

Hi folks,
here is another semi low-light clip with my hd700 and the 0.45x wide-angle lens, setting was all auto.

Nice. Love the rich color. The orange on the other ferry and the yellow light sure stands out. Wow.
