Sony Cybershot HX9V & Non-Genuine batteries...

Looking to get some cheap batteries for my Sony Cybershot HX9V, but am confused as to whether Sony have a firmware on there that will stop me using non-genuine batteries?

These are the batteries I want to buy:

Thanks!

Looks like the issue is that some 3rd party batteries apparently won't charge "in-camera" but are fine used in camera if charged externally...

Thanks guys, I think I will get an external charger as well. I wanted one anyway, my last camera came with one and I'd miss if if I didn't have one.
