Battery for Q2

Recommended Posts

I have concluded that the time it took to receive my Q2, and the wait and price for a spare battery, are all part of an insidious Hasselblad plot to make their wait times and prices seem reasonable by comparison. 🤣

Cause Leica.

Fashion accessories don't need customer service or available spares.

I mean this is kinda true? It does seem that Leica is in over its head in a number of ways. I'm not rooting against it, in fact I'm more tempted to dig my hole deeper and go in further with an M10P or a CL. But it will be interesting to see where this company is in five years time. If the future is uncertain for the larger companies, I cannot see how it's any more certain for Leica. I am hoping they have an iron clad pact with Panasonic, that's not a bad tech partner to have. They're pretty impressive.

Seems there is a trick to getting one - someone posted a source from NJ - search for it and that may help you if you are in the US.  I was able to get one within a few days - made my vacation with the Q2 way less stressful.

Keep a lookout on Ebay. As incredible as it may seem, the Leica Store in Nurnberg, Germany listed one two weeks ago on Ebay for about $150 new. I just received it and it is as advertised. Took about 9 days to get to NYC, no customs duty due as well. I'm still trying to figure out how they could sell it for $100 less than US dealers.

It’s my fault. I have 3 - The problem is I don’t have a Q2 yet!

(1 came with the SL, and 2 extras)

ditto. But I have 5 for my first version Q because they are Panasonic copies

The Leica Q has a battery that is the same as in one Panasonic (and some other makes afaik), so there is enough on the market.

The Leica Q2 has the same battery as the SL, and there are no other camera makes alternatives. With the success of the Q2 it is still almost impossible to find Q2 batteries.

Scarcity brings price fluctations usually.

I have the same battery bag and really like it. So far I only have one extra battery, so the unused pouch just bunches up and overall takes up less space.
