Contact cover for EN EL 18
« on: February 08, 2019, 09:45:20 »
Just converted my D850 to run 9 fps with a third party grip and 3rd party batteries .  One of the batteries from Subtel  did no come with a contact cover. I cannot find one anywhere for sale. Any of you got any idea where to buy one?

Thanks in advance

keep one battery in the camera grip, the other with the cover and you are in business

Thanks for the offer but seems a bit extreme to ship to UK from Norway.

Coming to Scotland in May ...


On a tangent note: have you checked eBay or similar for copies of the original? Usually it doesn't take long before one is offered fake versions of small items such as lens caps etc. Caps for the Z cameras have been out for a while already, to underline my point.

Local photo dealers may have some lying around in their junk drawers.

The number of traditional photo dealers in the UK  tends to zero..The photo shops only sell from boxes or order in.
Certainly nothing near me. Could try phoning a few of the remainling larger stores ..SRS ,Westminster etc.
Nothing on ebay or google
