    Default 3rd party digicam batteries - any experience?

    i was @ CP yesterday and a buncha us were looking at these 3rd party batteries for digital camera models (various brands and models). specifically i was looking @ the EN-EL3 equivalent for Nikon. i can't remember the brand name, dun think there's any actually, but they're cheap, almost half the price of the original branded ones and same power (1400 mAh for the Nikon EN-EL3 equiv.)

    anyone bought or using these now? how's the battery life and power like? any comments?

    thanks in advance!

    Basically, these are just rechargeable 2CR5s right? Has anyone tried using them on a 35mm SLR? Think it should last longer?

    Don't know??? I use on a day shoot, did about 350+ shots, still full on the LCD indicator.

    Until now never run out of batt before, buy because kiasu and vertical grip can use 2 batteries.

    Now I rotate the batts ( seldom use the Vert. Grip.) no diff with the nikon orginal.
