I brought one on ebay about 6 months ago for about 12.00 with shipping. It charges in the same cradle and it works just as well as the standard battery.

I remember seeing Fromeco offering Li-I packs for both the 12 and 14z

The battery is a Sony NP-F570, Amazon.com sells them for about $42 with free shipping.

The Fromeco solution will cost you about $46 to get the adapter plate and a 2400 mAh Li-Ion pack. The one advantage of that system is that it allows you to charge your pack using any lithium charger.

Look under transmitter packs
