Sony A7R III: Extra Batteries Not so Fast to Get, Have to Go Ground Shipping

See my Nikon wish list.

When I ordered the Sony A7R III from B&H Photo (due to arrive today), I neglected to order extra batteries. Problem is, at 15°F to 30°F, batteries do not last very long. So even though the battery is twice the capacity of the A7R II batteries, this has me concerned.

With the new heavy handed shipping restrictions (UPS/FedEx policy I believe), I cannot get extra Sony NP-FZ100 batteries in less than a week, because they must be shipped by ground.

I find it a little hard to believe that 3 Sony lithium batteries in mostly discharged state in original packaging present a danger to an airplane. I’m not talking about a pallet of 1000-batteries, but 3 camera batteries in their own box.

My planning error is your gain: plan ahead now if you want extra batteries, particularly given unreliable and overloaded shipping this month.

Looks like I’ll need to charge the A7R III in the field by connecting it via USB: see Anker PowerCore+ 20100 USB-C Charger Battery for iPhone/iPad/Cameras/MacBook/etc. It is awkward to have to cable the A7R III to an external battery while shooting, but if I run out of juice, it’s better than trudging back to the van prematurely.

I’ve used this Anker battery solution for the Sony A7R II, so presumably it will work for the A7R III unless there is some cabling issue.

Amazon has a bunch and with Prime I will receive mine in 2 days. Perhaps they have stock at a variety of warehouses throughout the U.S. and can deliver at will.

DIGLLOYD: good tip. I normally order all my camera gear from B&H Photo, but in this case I need those batteries quickly. I think B&H can ship one (1) battery overnight, but not 3. Amazon has a lot of warehouses, so can probably ship right from Reno or some place 2000 miles closer.
