What is the difference between an OEM digital camera battery and DuracellDirect's digital camera batteries?
We carry replacement Duracell Direct digital camera batteries for Pentax digital cameras that will meet or exceed OEM manufacturer
specifications. All aftermarket Pentax digital camera battery products come with a full one year warranty, and carry
various UL, CE, RoHS and FCC safety certifications. Aftermarket digital camera batteries are built with high quality
materials and newer technology which makes them longer lasting digital camera batteries, safe, and have an advantage over
OEM Pentax digital camera batteries.
What different types of Pentax digital camera batteries are there?
There are several different types of aftermarket Pentax digital camera batteries that you might find on DuracellDirect.
These different Pentax battery chemistry types are: Li-Ion (Lithium Ion), Ni-Cad (Nickel Cadmium), Li-Poly (Lithium
Polymer), or NiMH (Nickel Metal Hydride). Li-Ion is a fairly common digital camera battery chemistry type for Pentax
batteries. Each Pentax digital camera battery chemistry type has advantages and disadvantages, such as longer life per
charge, longer overall life cycle, weight, size, faster charge time, or stability. All four battery chemistry types
are universally accepted in Pentax digital cameras.
Why do Pentax batteries have different capacities?
Pentax digital camera battery capacity is measured in “mAh” (milliampere-hour). Many different factors affect digital camera
battery capacities: in particular, digital camera battery cell size, voltage, wattage, and even the battery chemistry type.
The more electrolyte and electrode material there is in the digital camera battery cells, the larger the capacity will be
if the chemistry make up is the same. Pentax digital camera batteries with larger capacities will always last longer than
digital camera batteries with lower battery capacities.
How long will my Pentax digital camera battery last?
Your replacement Pentax digital camera battery should last a few hours for recording and playback. Recharging your Pentax
battery will take one to three hours to reach a full charge, with 80% battery capacity being reached the first hour.
Pentax digital camera battery lifespan should last for about three years and can handle over 500 discharge / charge cycles.
