The only one I can find is the $175 one on Whitehouse AV, with a charger being $145. Do you know any other cheaper places?

You can always see what's up on ebay. Other than that, Whitehouse AV is probably the way to go. Considering how hard it would be to find these items elsewhere (especially new!) Whitehouse seems pretty reasonable.

Visual Products quoted me $150 per battery and $100 for the charger last week.

Another option, if you have the battery pack already but it is dead, is to re-cell it.
The shell is difficult part to obtain.
New cells should cost about $60.

Cheers,

Won't it run off of any XLR-4 12 volt battery?

No, manual states 17-24v with a firm max (and likely destroyed electrics) of 27v. 12v is not enough.

You should buy the battery and charger for $300 if you want to shoot on the CP-16. The batteries are custom, 20V. I am actually selling a CP16R with zoom lens & zoom control. I'm not selling mags and batteries, since I am using those on my other CP.
