    Leaf Aptus II Batteries

    I am looking for a battery with a higher milliamp rating than 2350, with the same form factor as that provided by LEAF. Specifically, YAYA, can you please let me know if there are considerations of which I am unaware that mitigate against the use of batteries with stated capacities greater than those provided by LEAF of their backs?

    I have a LEAF Aptus II 12 for the Hy6.

    Jerry - got this tip from Yair some time ago so I passit on

    the actual battery naming is Samsung SB-L 160 (normal size) for double size it is SB-L 320 there are even bigger ones

    For Samsung SB L320 Battery SBL160 SBL320 SBL480 4400mA | eBay

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/7500mAh-FOR-...item58948bbe0f

    These work more than double the time on an Aptus II as it seems these are much more resistant to decharge current than the smaller ones.

    I've seen batteries rated at 320, 480 and even 640 but those were HUGE! I think the 320 gives good performance, size ratio

    Don't go with the cheapest as they can offer a poor physical fit

    We have a couple 6000mAh Lenmars at our Atlanta office that we use in a pinch.

    Amazon.com: Lenmar LISG480 Replacement for samsung SB-L480: Camera & Photo

    It's about 3 inches deep. On some cameras, it acts as a second grip!
