Not received my Q yet, but have (perhaps stupidly) already picked up my required accessories, including an extra two official Leica BP DC12 batteries. I was wondering if anyone who already had a Q were already using a third party battery? I was considering from a reputable brand like Duracell (the DRPBLC12). I'm not very concerned about the lower capacity (950 mAh vs 1200), but I am concerned about a third party battery not showing how much power is left via the LCD, which I think is par for the course nowadays. Thoughts or experiences?

I've got an original M8, which has recently been through Solms for a CLA, and repair of shutter and winding mechanism (shipped back to me on 2/22/2018). It comes with original box + packaging + manuals, discs, everything. It has the original (large) battery charger with car adapter with all 3 of the wall plug adapters. It comes with a new Nitecore charger, which I use for travel. Four Leica batteries, two were purchased in 2017, 1 a few years ago, and the original. All work and I use them. The camera (as of this ad placement) has 17,952 shutter actuations. Max shutter speed is 1/8000th of a second - the fast shutter. The display screen at the back does not exhibit the "coffee stain", and it does have a 3rd party gorilla glass protector on. The little LCD screen on the top works. If you are looking for a great condition, just refurbished M8, this is it. As you might expect, the Solms visit was expensive but thorough - it is like a new camera. This is your chance to get an M8 for collecting or using. I have about 6 of the IR filters that are required for the M8 for sale with the camera. $25.00 each, but email and I'll see what size/manufacturer they are, and see which ones you want, if any. Just ask questions, I'll do my best to answer them. Shipping - we will discuss shipping options to you from Canada; I will charge the exact amount that I pay for tracked shipping. I'll provide scans of the bills to help. I think that's fair.

Dear fellow sufferers, OK, it's just a minor thing but still: I bought 2 batteries with my M9-P. One charged without flaws but when I tried to charge the other one, both LEDs of the charger were blinking - loading error. So I returned that one to the Leica Store where I bought it. They gave me a new one without debate and I bought 2 additional ones. (Just to get prepared for the Vietnam trip later this year.) Now, when I try to charge these, it's the same loading error in the charger. I put them into the cam, took some photos, put them back into the charger and again: loading error. Any ideas or tricks someone? Is it the charger and not the batteries? Or is there nothing else left than to return the batteries again? Perhaps someone can help me. Cheers Jochim
The M9 manual states (p 106): "A new battery only reaches it's full capacity after it has been fully charged and --by use in the camera -- discharged 2 or 3 times. This discharge process should be repeated every 25 cycles." Does this mean that every 25 cycles I should fully discharge/recharge _once_ or 2-3 times? (Possibly the German version is clearer.) Ordinarily I'd search general information about lithium batteries, but none of the other lithium powered devices I have recommend the 2-3 discharging process for new rechargeable batteries or periodically thereafter. Also, how necessary/helpful have folks found it to do this process during the life of the M9 batteries? Thanks in advance for any advice. Michael
I just was searching all the usual suspects (B&H-Adorama, etc) for a replacement battery for my M9 - seems like everyone is out of stock - does anyone have any experience with any of the non-leica batteries that work with the M8/9 or other suggestions? Thanks
