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.

Yup - the Cameron Sino batteries need modification before they'll work in the later clamshell models. Take a hobby knife and cut away the small piece of plastic that's between the bottom of each terminal and the case seam.

I've got two that I've used for ages and they've worked perfectly since I did this.
