Thread: Kr D-BH 109 AA battery adapter is here

    Default Kr D-BH 109 AA battery adapter is here

    HI Bro/Sis

    Kr D-BH 109 AA battery adapter is finally here, I just pick it up one at SLR Revo. Emjay sales in another discussion thread also feedback it will be available at Sitex as well.

    The build is mostly plastic but feel strong, not those cheap plastic. It have one metal plating at the bottom. It fits 4 AA battery and plug into Kr smoothly.

    Just happy now i can start to use my eneloops. Its a pain to shoot with one battery previously.

    $70 is bloody exorbitant! You might as well get another original lithium battery

    Think original lithium battery cost $120

    and kudos to Hoya for building it based on the K-7 chasis

    Personally I would wait for third party alternatives to appear at a fraction of the cost.
    I definitely won't pay full price for this because how much does it really cost to mold some plastic and metal bits?
    I have third party batteries in my K-5 (carry over from the K-7) and they cost a fraction of the original and work just as well.
    I think I paid something like US$12 for them, shipping included.

    ya orginal battery and the aa adapter is a bit pricey.
    but seriously when u are limited to only one battery, you get very very unhappy...

    Saw the D-BH1/9 selling for less than Jpy 4,000 in camera shop in Kyoto.
    With cost of shipping & GST etc, the final price is almost on par if get in SG, if assume cost & margin are same from both sides.

    i agree, $120 for a battery is overkill. i would not pay more than $50 for it.

    For those going to some winter wonderland for holidays, do take note that battery life takes a bit hit in cold weather. Also, don't use regular AA's - they will be drained extremely fast by the camera, good lithium batts will provide more shots per dollar spent.

    so fast sold out... think its too expensive imo... a SD card that is much more difficult to manufacture and more useful cost a lot less... maybe wait for some 3 party ones to appear...

    If you look at the adapter, you'd know a SD card is a lot easier to manufacture and cost a lot less to make too But I agree it's a bit over priced, that's the way all camera manufacturers make profit by overpricing their accessories.

    Waited 2 days and its gone. Sigh.
    Wonder if its limited stock or are there too many Pentax users.
