Just got my Eclair NPR in the mail, but I need to get a new battery for it. I am admittedly ignorant about motorized cameras, since all my experience until now has been with my Bolex wind up. I do know that the motor is a Hafflexx ultra compact. Basically, I would like a good battery, with a charger. Also, is there available an AC/DC plug, so when I'm filming on a set or inside, so I can simply plug in my camera to an outlet? Could anyone recommend a good online retailer or business that might carry all that I need? I would appreciate any help!

I use big Bescor lead blocks. They are about $88 - $104 from B&H. They are heavy as hell, but cheap and come with a charger. You will probably need a cig to 4 pin XLR adapter. 1 battery usually runs 3 400' loads in my camera (if it isn't cold). You can use these batteries for a variety of other things too (lights, audio, and making the campfire turn really neat colors).
