    I posted something about this in a previous thread but got no reply.

    Question: Has anyone come across a third party battery for the Leica M9 that has been chipped to communicate with the camera?

    I've purchased numerous third party batteries for the M9 but none has been chipped, unlike batteries available for Nikon, Canon, etc.

    My guess is that the small manufacture run of batteries for the M9 isn't worth duplicating the electronics.
