Looking for a medion camcorder battery

  Sapins 12:48 18 Aug 2010

I bought a Medion HD Camcorder MD86232, battery ref. NP40 from QVC UK and I cannot find anyone who can supply a spare battery. Medion UK will only deliver to the UK and their French site does not have the battery. QVC don't have one.

I have been given 4 sites to search from Medion and none of them can help. I could use the UK site and have it sent to a UK address but the postage is over £8 and then will probably be another few quid to France, the battery is only £8 to start with, how can they charge over £8 to post it, it doesn't weigh that much!

The battery spec is 3.7v, 720mAh, 2.67wh,are all these critical?

I have tried all the sites I can think of but no luck as yet.

I would imagine that other makes of battery will be ok.click here

Not easy to find. But found this link - click here

gengiscant - I think you will find that most of those are for digital cameras and not suitable for camcorder. Very difficult to find but that link I provided is positive.

One of the sites I have tried, don't stock suitable battery


That's the link I mentioned re delivery to UK only.

Yes, that is the Medion UK Website - £6.95 plus £6.95 delivery - not £8 as you mentioned. It appears this is the only place you are likely to get one from - it won't exactly break the Bank - will it ?

Sorry - I have misunderstood - I take it you are NOT in the UK ?

  northumbria61 13:55 18 Aug 2010

OK - I see you are in France.

Have you tried eBay?

Not sure if these fit the bill.

I just object to what I see as exorbitant p&p.

muddypaws, not suitable I'm afraid.

Postage doesn't come cheap these days so if you want a battery you are going to have to pay it.

There are very few items that qualify for free postage unless the cost is over a certain amount.
Suppliers have to make a living somehow.
