    Leica BP-SCL2 reviews

    BP-SCL2 Lithium-Ion Battery Pack (7.4V, 1800 mAh) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 34.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from BP-SCL2 Lithium-Ion Battery Pack As a previous owner of the Leica M8 and M9, I can tell you 'first-hand' that the OEM Leica battery life was just ok. These Leica batteries will cost you an arm and a leg, but they are made by Varta (a German company) for Leica and have much more capacity. This is especially important as Live View places a huge drain on the camera battery. I purchased two extra BP-SCL2 Lithium-Ion Battery Packs and an extra BP-SCL2 Charger, so I should be pretty well set for lots of shooting. I do not recommend buying any of those aftermarket batteries (if available) for your Leica. Go with the real thing, and you can get them at B+H

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much-improved; good idea as a spare I purchaed this battery as a spare when I ordered my Leica M (240), based on suggestions I read online. As others have noted, this battery is much larger and lasts longer than the batteries in previous digital M models. Depending on your choice of camera settings, and on how much you use Live View, one fully charged battery should easily last for a full day of shooting. However, I think it is still a good idea to have a fresh, charged battery as a back-up, even if you plan to charge the first battery every evening.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from satisfactory, ample, but pricey Like everything with 'Leica' on the label, this battery is overpriced. However, if you have a Leica M 240, THIS is THE battery. Since one battery's charge may not last for a full day's shooting -- especially with use of live view, real-time GPS tagging, & image review in the field -- you need a spare battery. This IS the same battery that is shipped with the camera body.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Power Excellent life, highly recommended. Just be sure to remove it from the camera if you have to send the camera to Leica for servicing. I sent my M262 to NJ with one of these in it and I never got the battery back!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Quality but PRICEY Fits and functions flawlessly, seems to be built solidly and much longer lived than I thought they would be. I docked the battery 1 star because I think that it is overpriced compared to other Li-ion battery packs costing 50 bucks more than a canon 12 volt 3700mi AH battery and triple the cost of factory nikon and canon comparable 1,800 mi-AH 7.2 volt batteries. There are no third party batteries therefore if you want to shoot with a Leica 240 or SL this is the only game in town.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Leica Quality Not cheap but it does the job. No problems to report after several weeks of intensive use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Necessary The Leica batteries are a little overpriced but let's face it, you bought a Leica. No need to skimp on these details. The battery life on the M240 is pretty good. The lad is the biggest drain but I tend turn off auto review. The moment you're gonna be looking at images in the field or using live view at all, the second battery becomes a necessity. Also good to have for those times the on switch can be thrown while in your bag.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Battery review? A battery review seems a bit batty, but here goes. Like the original, my first, battery for my Leica M240, this one charges relatively quickly and I have never had a day long enough to exhaust it. Could happen, esp with viewfinder in tow of course. In closing, quality product, my older battery gives me warnings through the camera that it is old, but the case has not swelled and I still get a good charge on my now, backup battery.
