Excerpt: I use the batteries for taking photos of fire scenes so they may sit in my hot vehicle for a month or so without being used. When I go to use them, they are still fully charged which is important when you need to use them in a moments notice.
Excerpt: I have always used OEM batteries in my photo/video equipment and have never been disappointed. Some of my friends have used third party batteries with mixed results. When I purchased a new Pentax grip for my camera I added the extra battery for added capacity.
Excerpt: Bought this to supplement an identical battery (still going strong after three years) that came with one of my cameras. I've bought third-party batteries and they have never been satisfactory. If you need a D-L190 get the real thing.
Excerpt: This is the spare battery I bought for my pentax K-3. I found that using live view on this camera uses up the battery a lot faster than my older camera. It works as is should, no more, no less: open the box. Put the battery on the charger. Go drink coffee - ok, it takes longer than that to charge.
Excerpt: 3 years ago I purchased Pentax K-5 Camera with battery and an extra Flashpoint brand battery. The aftermarket battery is now toast and the Pentax battery is going strong. The cheaper battery never did last as long between charges and got worse over time.
Excerpt: I don't have any experience with the off brand batteries, so it's hard to compare. The original battery that came with my k3 never held a charge as long as this one. I'm definitely satisfied with my purchase. Thanks Adorama!
