    Hi all,

    Waiting in line like many others for availability of the new P4K. Meantime searching around for best pricing on the Canon LP-E6 batteries for it. A number of reputable dealers offer "replacement" versions for the Canon LP-E6 battery sometimes less than half the price of an actual Canon batt. Any advice regarding these for use with the new Pocket 4K? I think I've read that non-Canon versions provide far less battery time? Thanks in advance!

    We use only native Canon batteries and a D-Tap with proper cable.

    I'm very happy with RAVpower batteries on my p4k. I bought four, with two dual chargers, for the price of a single Canon battery. They may last a bit less, but they get the job done, and given how I use them the lack of a reliable battery life indicator is not a problem (arrive in the morning with all batteries charged, move them from charged to uncharged pouch as I go through them, then charge everything overnight; once or twice in a day I may have to reshoot something because the battery died in the middle of a shot, but I never have a big crew so it's not much of a problem *for me*).
