    Hi there,

    I would like to get a kodak nimh pack for this battery since my CRV3 lithium
    won't last forever! My only problem is how to charge the nimh pack. I'm
    not paying £50 odd quid for a separate docking station. I would like to
    know, does plugging the 3v Dc In jack into the camera charge the nihm
    pack? - if not, does anyone know of a separate (read cheap) charger for the
    kodak nimh pack? This is the pack I was looking at...


    ... but I can find no way of charging it without buying an expensive dock
    like this...


    (and when all the dock does is the equivalent of plugging in the usb
    cable/plugging in a battery charger, I would rather do without it if
    possible! :) )

    Thanks for any suggestions you can offer,

    Look at this site. They seem to offer stand-alone chargers for Kodak dx

    Go to http://www.thomas-distributing.com/ and read about their C204F charger
    kit - it comes with 4 AA batteries.

    You can get the C204F charger with 4 AA batteries for just over $25. Nice
    price AND you get two sets of batteries. They will work just fine in your
    DX6340. I used them in my DX3900 and I just got the DX6340 (with the
    purchase of a Dell PC). They use the exact same battery pack.

    The Kodak battery pack is nothing more than two AA cells taped together and
    is very expensive. You could probably buy 4 AA NiMH rechargeables for less.
    The Kodak dock is also a waste of money. Suitable chargers can be bought
    for £15 upwards, often with a free set of batteries. I don't think that
    plugging in the 3V DC will charge the batteries - it probably dissconects
    them. I used to sell NiMH batteries and chargers on eBay and still have a
    few left over. If you're interested, send me an e-mail (remove the
    'nospam') and I'll forward details.

    Greetings Rob,

    No, the charger will not charge the battery by just plugging in the USB
    cable. Rather, you need to use the Dock or a charger. Keep in mind that
    the dock is more than just a battery charger, as it makes transferring
    images very easy. Just set the camera on the dock and your computer will
    download the images and open them up in the EasyShare Software. Very easy
    and convenient.

    Once the images have been transferred to your computer, you can do lots of
    things with your camera and computer connection, i.e. move addresses from
    your computer to the camera, and more.

    Also, please note that the battery in question has a band on that holds the
    two NiMH batteries together and when inserted into the camera, it turns on
    the camera charging feature..

    Of course you can you can remove the card from the camera and insert the
    card into a reader to get a similar effect. But, you do not get the
    charging option. If you do not want the dock, you can get a separate
    charger that will charge your NiMH batteries and keep them at the ready.

    Check your local dealer for the remote charger.


    Talk to you soon, Rob,
