    Who knows where to get new or rebuilt Rolleiflex 600* batteries. B&H is alleged to have new ones from reading old WEB items, but are now closed. Any ideas? Found one place that wants $190 for new ones.... seems WAY out of line to me! Need some help here.... thanks...

    If you don't want to do it yourself I have nothing but good things to say about my rebuilds from Battery Specialties in Costa Mesa, CA. When I last checked they would only do NiCd, not NiMh. Spot welded, first class padding and packing of the battery pack. They were about $50 a few years ago. Ask for Dave in sales. (No relationships other than happy customer)
