My Latest Photography Accessory - Why did I wait so long to buy it?

So, there's a photo of my latest photography accessory: two backup batteries for my digital camera. I can't tell you how many times I've been hit with a low battery at the most inopportune times (like, say when the first African American president is getting sworn into office?). Well, now I've got a fallback plan.

The only question I have is why the heck didn't I do this sooner?

One of the big reasons was my expectation of what an extra battery would cost. My main point of reference is a laptop battery which can be hundreds of dollars. I was thinking it might be worth it to just buy a new camera rather than shelling out big bucks for a battery.

I was totally wrong. The batteries are dirt cheap. These two batteries were like $6.00 and came to about $10.00 with shipping. That's nothing.

Now, these are after market batteries, so maybe they don't last as long as my official Canon one. But still, at $6.00 for 2, who cares? (When they melt down my camera, then I'll care).

So, do yourself a favor and buy a couple backup batteries today. Don't wait till you've lost that moment forever before doing something about it.
