Battery cover Protection

Hi Happy New Year to all.

I am looking to find Sony Battery cover Protection for batteries NP-F 770 and NP-F970. It is the same size and its a plastic places to look?

Re: Battery cover Protection

Are you looking to cover the batteries? May I ask why? I keep mine in a Portabrace belt pouch in my bag. The pouch is big enough to hold 4 batteries (contacts facing away from each other) and I've been carrying them that way for years.
To be honest, I've never seen anything specifically made for that purpose.

Re: Battery cover Protection

Don I bought a battery that had this cover (see attached pictures) so I thought I could buy some for my other batteries.

Re: Battery cover Protection

Each of my Canon and Panasonic camera batteries came with a plastic cover and they're all different.

They're designed to protect the battery from moisture and stop anything shorting out the terminals if the battery is loose in a bag
and they're very easy to lose when you're outdoors.

Most airlines state you have to have those covers on your spare batteries when you check in .. buy Dons suggestion, do a search on the web,
check your local camera outlet or use a little jewellery bag. Yes happy new year Stelios :)

Cheers.

Re: Battery cover Protection

Wow, I feel dumb. I swear I've never seen those covers. I have about 8 or 9 Sony batterys and have never had a cover. I feel like I missed something. Hey Sony, I want my covers! ;-)
Thanks for the info.

Is that right! Don the only thing I can think of is, after deliberation, Sony figures you won't short anything out .. HNY :)
