21x Motorola(Symbol) ES400 3080mAh batteries. Turns out every unit had a dead battery. Apparently, you should charge lion batteries one in a while or they kick the bucket.

I always like the look of those. They're a good way of creating an nice silhouette without extensive tailoring.

The original is much sharper than the more recent ones. Good choice!

What are you going to do with the 20 phones? I have visions of them being networked together into some kind of proto-Skynet....

The last thing I should be doing is spending money extraneously, but I couldn't resist Amazon's Blu-Ray deal today: The entire Godfather trilogy for $25.

They were replacement/RMA units for the ES400s at the hospital my sister in law works at. Most of them are brand new but they were going to be destroyed because of some recycling contract. A bloke i know managed to liberate a box of them i and got my hands on one via my sister in law. But every battery is dead.

I'm gonna slam in the new batteries ans sell them off. The retail at about 500€ over here. Most of the units i got were brand new. Some were even sealed in their original packaging.

Btw, according to the manifest, they retailed at 1500€ in late 2010 / early 2011.

Sounds like a tidy little profit in there for you; great idea!

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

it's worth it Lumi... done a few test shots with it and it's absolutely stunning on the 5D Mark II... i'm primarily be using it on the 7D, so hopefully won't loose that much info when transferred to a cropped sensor...

I am always drooling over big lenses like that.... I won't be able to afford anything decent anytime soon. Can always dream.
