I bought a Canon SD 800 IS, it takes the Canon NB-5L Battery, but when I was looking online there are about 10-20 substitutes (at least) from a lot of battery makers. I was wondering if I should just suck it up and pay for the Canon brand battery, or just get a equivalent for less than half the price?? Some of the replacements even state they will last longer(more charge and discharge cycles) and take more pictures(longer maH ratings). I have a feeling this may not matter, kind of like buying Duracell vs. Energizer.... I just don't want to do anything to destroy the camera.

I've bought numerous extra batteries for my Canon 20D off of ebay, and I've had zero problems with them. I think i actually even bought the two that are in my battery grip for a total of 13$ shipped. <BR> <BR>buy from a seller with good feedback, and try them in the camera. <BR> <BR>Most batterys don't have problems with leaking, etc except when charging or left in a camera for long periods of time. So don't charge in the camera and take them out if you're not going to use them for a while.... <BR> <BR>my 2 cents! <BR> <BR>eric

Sterlingtek.com. great batteries, good service and fast shipping. best of all.... no dealing with flea bay. <BR>their shipping is a little high, but I can't complain when a 20d battery was shipped to me for under $20

I have bought a couple batteries from an e-bay seller called "orphanbiker". Good products, good service.
