Kodak battery

I am not impressed by the battery performance of the v530. It is an ultrasmall camera by today's standrard. That means the battery is also small and probably limits its shooting life. The pain in recharging is compounded by the need to unscrew the latch to get to the battery. This means you need a small screwdriver with you to change batteries on the road. What a pain! To charge the battery, the Kodak Klik 7002 battery needs to be in the camera and you can charge it with the camera in the dock. I ordered a Belkin brand battery as a back-up. It costs $12 less than the Kodak, and I am guessing the life will be comparable. A charger for out-of-camera batteries is $35. Zounds!
