Or have anybody tried Nikon EN-EL1 battery from Nikon Coolpix cameras to use with PZ-1p?

Nikon EN-EL1 is replacement battery for 2cr5 for use in Nikon Coolpix
digital cameras, it probably shoud work with Pz-1p, but it should be tried
first.

Steve,

Not really sure why you would want to when you can get the 2CR5s so very cheaply from http://www.7dayshop.com (2.09 each)

The rechargables will be lower voltage than the lithium, so don't hold out too much hope for the EN-EL1. However, if you've got both, it's worth a try

Rechargeables EN-EL1 are higher voltage than 6V 2cr5 - it is
about 7 volts and something, I think it should work fine, I would
buy it, but I must buy also charger.

Cheap batteries - I can forget it in my country - here such a battery costs
400 slovak crowns = 9 US dollars!!!!

When the PZ-1 first came out, I was using them for weddings, It got expensive in terms of batteries, so I took apart a spent 2cr5 and ran some wires to a 4-AA battery holder which I mounted under the camera. It worked great. I had to make a little hole in the corner of the battery door for the wires, but other than that it just screwed into the tripod socket.

(Kind of like a poor mans MZ-5 battery grip.)

If the batteries are that expensive where you are you might want to fiddle around and see what you can come up with!

Good luck!
