Subject: Re: [Leica] Battery life (and price) for R8 motor-winder
From: Pascal <>

Hello to all:

I finally bit the bullet. Today I ordered the motor-winder R8. It should 
be delivered within some weeks (hum we'll see about that :-) but one can 
always live on hope).

As for the battery update: the lowest price I could find lithium D123A 
type cells so far is 306 BEF a piece. This corresponds to a little over 8 
USD a piece. So two batteries sets you back at 16 USD. If you take 35 
films for one set of batteries, than this amounts to 0.46 USD battery 
cost for one film of 36 pictures.
Only real life testing will tell, however :-)
