    Upgrading from the PENTAX D* IST to the K30 has been somewhat of a downgrade in power options. The IST had an optional power pack that attached to the base of the camera body, and both it and the internal battery storage accepted both AAs and the higher performing VR batteries (that look like two AAs stuck together). Not cheap to get "standard" battery functionality, but I guess that keeps the price of the initial camera down!!

    Does what it's supposed to do

    I use this for my K-30, and it does exactly what it's supposed to, which is to let you use AA batteries instead of the included battery pack.

    Super handy...Read complete review

    I use this for my K-30, and it does exactly what it's supposed to, which is to let you use AA batteries instead of the included battery pack.

    Super handy when shooting out in the field and when you'll be far away from a power source for extended periods of time.

    Can get much cheaper versions of this product out there, and the components of this product seem simple enough that it shouldn't be a problem. However, I was averse to taking any risks since I needed this for an important trip. Still, I wish this was much, much cheaper.

      Comments about D-BH109 AA Battery Holder for Select Pentax Digital SLR Cameras:

      With use of AA Lithium batteries, Pentax K30/50 can shoot 1,500 shots on one set of batteries. Great for use in those areas where you can not use the battery charger.

          Comments about D-BH109 AA Battery Holder for Select Pentax Digital SLR Cameras:

          Works best with AA lithium (more power & lasts longer than OEM). "Power glitch" once in a while because it gets loose, so I suggest wrap the batteries around with a strip of scotch tape just to hold it tight. Other than that, it functions well...

              Comments about D-BH109 AA Battery Holder for Select Pentax Digital SLR Cameras:

              So for me this was a must have, I was on my way to go camping and there was going to be no access to outlets for charging batteries. I originally had the Pentax *istDL, which took AA batteries, so when I realized that the Pentax K50 did not I bought the battery holder. It's easy to use and very convenient and it means that I don't always have to have a charged battery because I have this now.

                  This battery holder allows the use of readily available AA batteries in an emergency when you are in a situation where you cannot recharge the regular battery. I wish this was available on all my cameras because this is a better option than purchasing a handful of proprietary batteries.

                            With the standard Pentax battery pack, I always worry about when I'm going to run out. If you accidentally leave the camera on, the standard battery pack can run down without you noticing. Using the D-BH109 with lithium cells is a perfect solution to turn your Pentax into the Energizer bunny. I bought this for a wedding so I can shoot and shoot without worrying.

                            Since I do a lot of nature photography, I'm not always near a place I can charge my battery. This gives me the ability to carry AA batteries as back up. I can use lithiums or NMiH rechargables.I haven't used it much, but somehow I've got to believe I will get more shots out of using 4 NMih batteries, than the actual camera battery.

                                          Good invention in order to use AA batteries for Pentax Kr and K30,
                                          Much longer time while using AA instead of default battery.
                                          Working perfectly indeed

                                                I use it with my K-30. I keep it loaded with rechargeable batteries and in my bag. Never without power for my K-30. It's great to have this option.

                                                    Substitute for lithium battery.

                                                    This product is a great alternative to the battery that comes with the camera (K30). No more looking for places and wasting time to charger the battery. The D-BH109 uses the 4 AA batteries so you can continue using your camera.
