Never mind I found some, here’s the link for people curious: https://www.amazon.com/2x-Pack-Adapters-Replacement-Lithium-Ion/dp/B00FN8NMJU

eneloops are also highly regarded (I have many, fantastic batteries)

 

So I have a camera and I want to see if there would be a chance that I could get pretty much 2 AAs combined with a positive and negative contact at the top, I don’t know if such a thing exists but anyone know of any? Btw here is my cameras battery bay. (And yes I am looking into those cr-v3 things but I wanted to ask just in case I could not find them.

yes they get good reviews but many different brands of rechargeable batteries all come from the same factories in china and only get differnt labels

the rechargeable bateries that are sold in ikea are the same quality as other more expensive brands

yeah what would i know about cameras or cinematography compared to you tech people.  i've only done this work for nearly 20 years, won a few awards, worked in over a dozen different countries and a few multi million dollar projects

They may be Panasonic branded, but they come from a Fujitsu factory. It’s interesting to see just how many brands come out of the one plant in Japan and its sister in Korea.

even the ikea ones that are marked made in japan come from those factories  I made a mistake saying chinese factories earlier but there are also chinese factories that produce rechargeable batteries

and the ikea ones are cheaper while tests have shown they work just as well as eneloops

 

but i haven't needed to use rechargeable aa or aaa batteries in a long time.  we use v mount, gold mount, sony bpu, npf, canon ep, batteries with hirose, lemo, d-tap.  the only time we need standard batteries are for backup use in a spare battery caddy/sled and i use the lithium ultimate series

yeah what would i know about cameras or cinematography compared to you tech people.  i've only done this work for nearly 20 years, won a few awards, worked in over a dozen different countries and a few multi million dollar projects

I’m not saying the ikea ones are bad just the ones they got are. 
 

You deal with 0 in lav packs or mics? That’s what I use them in.

why has this turned into an argument about where batteries are made? I was just asking if anyone knew of some good rechargeable batteries.

I still use them in my macro twin flash, in my case the IKEA ones. All my other flashes don’t use AA batteries.

Eneloops, Amazon Basics Black, and Energizer are the 'go-to' because they are the premium brands. If you're looking at powering your Pentax, any reputable battery will serve you fine. Up to you if you want to pay for the premium stuff.
