It's a battery
on February 15, 2010
The camera works well with the battery installed.
It doesn't appear to work at all with the battery removed.
So ..... five stars.
But seriously folks ...... the battery's ability to hold a charge and perform under stressful conditions, e.g., cold, will be tested after a year or two rather than a few months.
For a general review: I've tried a third-party battery (CTA) that was well-recommended and priced half of Pentax. Eighteen months later, it was holding only half the charge of my Pentax battery and I was scrambling to get at my spare. Lesson learned.
