    aka, non-OEM?

    I just bought a SD400 and wanted a spare battery for it. OEM will cost $50, which something off of ebay is only $10. Should I chance it? What are your experiences?

    Thanks. I am looking at Sterlingtek right now. But it seems as if they only sell in pairs. Anyone wanna go in half with me for a NB-4L? :o

    I got two NB-2LH batteries off Ebay for 5 bucks plus 5 bucks shipping. Canon sells one for like 5 bucks. They don't last quite as long but I'd rather have a couple and swap them out then pay 5 times as much.
