Ni-lon batts sold at Cathay Photo are only $20 each (Many models are avail, ie, Canon 350D, 20 D etc). Brand is something like "Digital"

Has anyone tried these batts? They are cheap but do they compares to the Eastgear battery?

AMD1600,

Thanks for the report. If this works well, this will indeed be the best bargain at $20 per battery.

something to add for this "Digital" battery.

used it on my FZ10 some times back.
when your cam flash battery low, don't change it.
it can still last a lot more photo before it really dry out.

Have used Digital (Minolta NP400). Its does not last as long as the original less than 2/3 of the original battery.
