Battery For Sl5500
« on: November 30, 2004, 03:29:54 pm »
Can you still buy spare batteries for the SL5500 in the UK?  Do you have to use a propriety 950mha battery or are there standard ones you can buy that are compatible?  Also my stylus broke.  Can you get replacements for those?

SL5500, Xtreme leather case, 64mb CF, Lexar 128 mb SD; Lynksys Wireless CF, Pocketop keyboard

I, also, am looking for a spare battery for my 5500, but I live in the US. Does anyone know where I can find one?

Thank you.

You have to search for 'bl06' (model of battery in the SL-5500, otherwise it doesn't come up for some reason. The search engine is stupid on CDW 'Sharp Zaurus' brings up the charger for the SL-6000, 'Zaurus' by itself brings up nothing. The battery doesn't show up in the Batteries - Brand Sharp category either.

Direct link to battery: [a href=\"http://www.cdw.com/shop/products/default.aspx?EDC=384773]http://www.cdw.com/shop/products/default.aspx?EDC=384773[/url]
Direct link to camera: http://www.cdw.com/shop/products/default.aspx?EDC=409479

Seems they have most Sharp accessories, just finding them is a pain in behind. I had to go through the PDA section page by page to find the camera.

Argg!  CDW has the battery, but won't take online orders for it.  To make matters worse, if you call from Canada (as they expect us to do), you get a "number out of service" error.  Yeesh!

Is there someone here who could order one for me from either CDW or Amazon, and then reship to Canada (perhaps marked gift so I can avoid taxes =))?  I'll happily work out a Paypal arrangement to prepay for the item.  If you can help I'm at -chayim---nospamdammit---at----gnupower---dot---net.  Just remove the nospamdammit and the hyphens.

thanks!
