Summary: This is the greatest little video recorder ever invented, and it's out of production. I dropped mine last week and while it wasn't damaged (whew!), I ordered this reconditioned unit as a spare. It shipped quickly and was well packed. We tested it and it worked.
Summary: This one was bought used and works fine. It came with the original rechargeable batteries. I gather AA's will work as well. The batteries lost their charge faster than I thought (in the run-up to Christmas, before the camera was given). Fortunately, they charged up fast.
Summary: The Flip Video is a compact pocket video that is simple to use. It provides HD Videos simple to upload and play in the computer or on the TV. It is a rugged instrument that can withstand some harsh treatment. I am well pleased with the video quality and serviceability.
