    Replacement Battery

    Get a Panasonic. Half the price and a better battery. They make Westco batteries. JON

    Jayson,
    Go here Http://www.digikey.com and print out the order form for a Panasonic LC-X1220P SLA battery. Mail the order form with a check for about $46(last time I checked, this was the price) and they will deliver the battery FREE. It will also be CHARGED.

    I just bought my second battery from DigiKey and could not be happier.

    The battery for my K100RT was $110.00 at the dealer and I paid $58.00 + shipping.

    The guy I talked to at Digi Key was great and the battery showed up UPS 3 days later fully charged and ready to go.
