I recently bought a JVC video recorder from newegg. The lowest of 3 batts for it came with, I looked up prices on better batt / life, and couldnt believe the best batt was almost as much $ as the camera. Recently I read that some Li-ion companies were busted by Govt for price fixing, Im hoping to see the prices sink. Same thing last year, LCD TV makers Busted for price fixing, THATS WHY the tv prices went way down just after holidays. Then again if they keep making cars with lith ion batts, supply and demand,,,, Hope for the best.
