R/C hobby rechargable as external?

You can get a DPS9000 commercial external battery - screws in tripod mount hole and provides tripod mount below.

You can pick up 2000-3000 mAHr NiCad rechargable battery pack at Radio Shack or your favorite Remote Control hobbiest shop... and with a 3 1/2' lead and a 4.7mm plug (again from Radio Shack) you can have power for thousands and thousands of shots... velcro to tripod, slip in pocket or camera bag... 7.2v doesn't match 8.4v external power spec, but it turns out there's a voltage limit cct inside the camera, so 7.2v external does work well.

Think OUTSIDE the catalog!
