The Zoom H4N recorder is an excellent product with many capabilities, but it has one design flaw: the battery cover is way too easy to break when one is replacing batteries. The tiny tangs that hold the cover in place are, well, tiny and, therefore, weak. If one does not open the door precisely and carefully, the next thing you know is you're taping the door in place. But not if you have a spare cover on hand. I like to keep two as insurance! If you own the recorder, you ought to have at least one spare!!

Cheap piece to replace

Thank god this thing is inexpensive -- because it tends to break quite easily. Zoom should have designed this thing to be sturdier is all I'll say.

      Comments about Zoom Battery Cover for the H4N Handy Recorder:

      No idea what happened to my original one. I lent my H4N to a clumsy friend and it came back without the battery cover. It was kind of hard to find a replacement. A lot of stores were perpetually out of stock. Once in a while I would check a few places for it and B&H had one show up. Well packed and shipped quickly, it's exactly like the original. Have no fear. :)

      Comments about Zoom Battery Cover for the H4N Handy Recorder:

      It was on backorder, so it took a month to arrive, but it was the real thing. Never break this cover- it's very fragile- it's overpriced for what it is, but B&H got it for me.

            The H4N is great, don't get me wrong. I just don't understand how pricey battery covers can be!

            Fit like a glove. No complaints!

                Since it was not the original, I wondered how it would work. Sometimes I am a little concerned when buying replacement products.

                It work really well, and it slid right into place with a click!

                I was very happy!
