compatible battery$ for Leica SR530 ?

Post by pksdabombdj » Sat Apr 10, 2004 8:28 am

new member here, and I need some surveyor help please. I am working with the Leica SR530 daily, and going through three of the NiMH batteries (GEB121) daily. I would like to get some more so I could work longer, and finish more projects, but the Leica ones are $110 each. Anybody know of any generic types that do the trick ($20). They look just like regular NiMH camcorder batteries from the outside. Similar voltages and specs, but the contacts beneath are slightly off. Brand name and or distributor would be great. Even the Leica guy said at the convention 'that regular camcorder batteries would work", though he didn't have the specific numbers or names of manufacturers. I would appreciate any information you folks would want to share. My boss is way to busy, so I am trying to source this myself. Thanks again :D pk

I replaced mine with Duracell (I do not have the number with me) I bought it at WalMart for about $60. It lasts longer than the Leica batts.
