    Default Camelion Brand Rechargeable Batteries

    Saw this brand in some shops.

    The following url is the distributor:
    http://www.swisscophoto.com.sg/camelion.htm

    They don't deal with one piece kind. Must order in bulk.

    Call the distributor and he says that dealers like song brothers, etc carry stock and probed further says shops in Orchard also carry.

    So must do more homework and post later.

    Cheers......

    The pocket travel charger looks good! Do they have 9V charger? Cannot buy 1 set?

    They say cannot but I will go to the office and see as I have a reply from them to go take a look as they carry all the range.

    If you want that email, email me at felixkhtan@gmail.com

    If they are cheaper and as good as the Sanyos or better, I may buy more....

    Cheers....

    That was in the reply i received. I called earlier but a ah beng answered and say they don't sell but distribute.

    So I wrote an email and received a reply from a lady called Cecilia and she invited me to go the showroom to view and purchase.

    Any news? I saw this brand selling at Chinatown Plaza at a ah beng camera shop on the ground floor, just opposite the escalator doing to the basement. Near OCBC bank and 2 money changers. But they only got the normal chargers and not the travel ones i want.

    I went to Sitex over the weekend and got some 2500 Konnoc from eastgear. Not bad for the 1st try. I pop them into my 90s discman and they're still going strong after a few hours of play.

    But its a funny sounding brand name.....'konnoc'! I tell the girl i want some konnoc and she laugh.

    Ya, I am sure. I remember it because I told myself that it is 50 cents more expensive that the price of SANYO 2500 mAh which was sold for $16 by Eastgear during SITEX.

    The website for that $10 per twin is for 2600 mAh. They even list a Nikon EN-EL3 battery rated @ 1800mAh @ $22.. Gosh... That is even higher than the latest D200 battery ( EN-EL3e @ 1500mAh)

    Ya man. Its super ex. I got a pair of 2500 Konnoc from eastgear during sitex at $7. $10 for a pair of 2600 sounds much better.

    Errrr, guys, I think I might have made a big mistake here. I think the Camelion that I saw in AMK was 4 for $16.50. Not very sure now...
    Sorry for all the confusion caused...

    If it is 4 for $16.50 (2600) then it is worth it. Will need to check out the main shop at high street.
