    IC, thanks for the battery links. Do these batteries already have the soldering tabs?
    Those do not have the tabs. I usually solder a brass jumper from cell to cell. I'm not sure if the tabs on the KR600AE long enough. I recently rebuilt a device with KR-1500SC with tabs and they were long enough to jump cell-to-cell.

    Cheapbatterypacks.com to get cells with tabs or I bet they would solder the pack so that all you needed to do is solder the last 2 connections to get out of the pack.

    I have a 6006 Mark I. It's been a workhorse for years, not a single problem. I decided to get an extra battery from B&H ($125!), just in case, but really, the original battery still lasts for dozens of rolls between charges. Perhaps I'm lucky, I don't know. The camera system is heavy, a big drawback for me, though it can make some beautiful images. I don't usually rely on in-camera metering, since I prefer incident metering or Sunny 16, but the big Rollei's meter is very reliable, predictable, and accurate. I've shot many slides with it, and as long as I increase exposures for backlit situations, it's nearly perfect.

    Worst downside? Good luck finding lenses in usable focal lengths for a reasonable price. Hasselblads are much better for lenses and accessories availability and price.

    While I like my 6006 a lot, and use it fairly often--95% of the time on a tripod--I don't love it like I love my Autocord.

    One more thing: don't do what I did and cheap out and get the 2X tele-converter instead of a 120 or 150. It definitely degrades the image on the standard 80/2.8, which is a lovely lens.
