12 volt charger for ZD
« on: June 14, 2008, 06:00:52 PM »

Are 12 volt chargers available for the ZD back battery? I can't find them on the Mamiya (UK) website.

Ah no, wrong end of the stick, or cable. I want to charge from a 12V source, car battery in this case.

Is this for the ZD camera or ZD back?  FWIW, the Minolta np-400 battery is identical to the Mamiya PB-401 battery for the ZD back (don't know what the ZD camera uses), and this charger will work: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/3875...r_100_240v.html

Many thanks for the link Jack, looks like the very item required.  I'm puzzled by the price difference between the NP400 at $30 and PB401 at  $169 though. Are they the same animal or does the whiff of a rip off scent the air?

As far as I am aware the ZD camera and back use the same battery.

Justin, I am using the $19.95 batteries in the charger that Jack linked to above. Unfortunately, I am not sure which is the non-working part, but I suspect it is the charger. The charger light comes on, but there is no visible difference when I put any battery inside, whether the Mamiya battery or the Impact DL150 batteries that I bought. I will buy a CTA battery and see what the deal is.
