ANother ebay thing... I think it might have been mentioned before.

There is an ebay store selling a lithium-polymery 1700mah battery for about $10 usd. If it wouldn't cause problems for the Z, this might be a cheap handy spare. I thought I'd mention it becuase it seems a little to good to be true. For $10 I'm ok with relatively short life, but not ok with any risk to the Z--thought it might be a good idea to ask around.

Before anyone recommends either a sharp battery, or one from lion batteries--I plan to pick up one of those soon anyway.

Heads up:

I bought 2 cheap ($10) EA-BL08 batteries and they do not work in my SL-C3000 (it is supposed to be compatible).

Battery light blinks orange continuously (which is what it does when there is no battery in the compartment) and of course the Z doesn't turn on.

Yes, I left it charging over night.

Physically it looks the same as my EA-BL11 which came with my Z. It fits reasonably well and easily into the compartment.

But no power...

I got them from Gizmos2Go.com. I'll be asking them to replace these, we'll see if they have any that work.

Don't rely on these working.
