Sometime in the last week, the website of Digital Camera Battery has gone offline, and of the various phone numbers we have for the Florida-based company, only the fax line seems to be fully operational. Combine that with a growing volume of email recently from photographers unable to reach the maker of portable power sources for flashes and digital cameras and it seems likely that the business is either in difficulty or has wound up.
