Thanks for helping, take care!
lenmar batteries are the ones i buy and use now...i get them from an ebay seller...mdbattery, i think is the name.
there are variations on the battery...lower mAh usually...i get the 1800 mAh ones...i have seen them as low as 1300...i honestly don't remember why anymore...i remember reading that the higher ones last longer (iirc)...
grips are hard to find, the nicest ones that i have found are the 'bridge' grips...expensive and i think no longer available new...at least the last time i checked on ebay. they have 2 versions...small difference but one you must loosen to change the battery...not a big deal but annoying. i have both and stopped using the annoying one. they fit the hand perfectly though and are not that big.
