Are the chargers and batteries for the beaulieu 4008 and 5008 interchangeable?

I'm thinking about buying a 5008 as a backup.

Thanks,
Schmüdde

Yes, you shouldn't have a problem interchanging chargers. The original batteries tend to "pop" when they give up the ghost, and the casing cracks. Radio Shack nickel-metal-hydride rechargeables work very well with these cameras. Put 6 AA cells in an 8-pack housing and get the plug-in charger which charges 4 all-at-once. They run the camera forever.

AA's don't fit these cameras. You either need a contact-block and an external battery-pack or you could modify the original old battery-holder to hold 6 AAAs

Yes Andries, I was talking external pack, hooked to the center positive and outside negative camera battery prongs.
