    Do any of you use the compatible batteries that can be found on ebay etc for less than £20 and if so how do you rate them , good or best left alone ?

    No I certainly do not buy only the expensive original equipment ones but you specifically said on e-bay so perhaps not many of us buy batteries that way.

    I personally buy all my camera and camcorder batteries from www.keene.co.uk but there are dozens (if not hundreds) of cheap online retailers which are all very good. I just wouldn't trust an unknown seller on e-bay.

    In over 10 years I have never had a problem with anything which I bought from Keenes.

    I said
    The important bit being the etc on the end but thanks for the info on Keenes :thumbsup: and if as you say you are happy with all you have bought off them in 10 years then it will probably be better for me to pay another £10 on top of the ebay prices for the same spec battery off them.
