I see on ebay Sony 'type' NP FM55H batteries for about $20 shipped.....? Anyone have any experience with these aftermarket batteries from Japan or China?

You'll have to check to see if they now have a battery for the A100, but I bought my spare off-brand 7D battery from SterlingTek and am pleased with it and SterlingTek.

at ebay i got the a100 battery. Its an 3 hour extended battery. It works great!!!! Its an off brand for the a100.

I may get another one and return the unopen pack I orig got at Circuit City. They were very expensive there!!!

I got a ebay cheapo battery and portable charger complete with auto cigarette lighter adapter from Hong Kong for $30 including shipping. So far the charger and battery both work great. No noticeable difference in battery life between the off brand and the original. I'll be getting another one or two when the vertical grip finally comes to market.

Like revdocjim, I ordered my backup batteries through a Hong Kong supplier.
I've bought all my extra batteries from one HK supplier on Ebay and they have always worked great... Why pay $50 or more for a battery when you can get them for about $17 each?
