You could call SRS and ask them to charge it for you

Peter's from an electrical background so I'm sure he can decide if he needs to wait 4-8hrs to fully charge or just give it 1 hour to put enough in to allow some practise shots

I've mentioned before Pentax are giving their customers a very poor Welcome and 1st user experience by supplying cameras with flat batteries

Thanks guys, but I'm annoyed already . . .

I got a grip too, which has the AA battery holder.

Guess what, I've only bought 4 AA's with me, and it needs 6, Aaaaaarrgghhhh.



Seriously though, it looks the business and Chris was as helpful as ever.
