Ex-Pro® Samsung BP-70A, BP70A, High Power Plus+ 2 Year Warranty Replacement Lithium Li-on Digital Camera Battery for cameras
on 31 May 2015
The purchase of this battery was as a spare for a camera I gave as a birthday present. Camera batteries are thankfully quite reliable and long lasting these days but if the camera is used a great deal, the battery can soon be flattened. I have encountered many instances of photographers who have missed the vital shot because their camera battery has run out of power. I have done this myself and so I carry a spare or spares, sometimes as many as 3 batteries on a shooting session. My camera no longer runs out of power during a shoot. I try to encourage other camera users to carry a fully-charged spare battery and most take my advice.
This particular battery purchase was prompted by me presenting a camera as a gift to someone who is not used to using modern cameras. However, they have learnt from my experience and they now carry a fully-charged spare battery with their cameras. In this particular instance I supplied a charger too so they would not forget.
The problem with batteries today is not one of performance but of cost. They can cost a great deal of money which might explain why a spare battery is often not carried. The Ex Pro range of batteries are quality batteries at realistic prices and I frequently turn to them when looking for spare camera batteries. But beware, very cheap batteries are a waste of money and often fail unexpectedly during service.
