SRS do a Hama battery at 1/2 the Pentax price - I have 2 and hey seem fine, although one now 3 years old, is starting to give me less life per charge, but the other is fine. I have three Pentax originals and use them and the Hama's turn and turn about.

Microglobe.co.uk also do a good deal on the Pentax original - I have bought Pentax bits and pieces from them with no problems (magnifying eyepiece, lens hood)

I had a few Maxsima brand batterys from Amazon

After pretty extensive use, i really can't see any difference between them and the Pentax ones apart from the price.

I purchase all my spare batteries from e-bay, I just google the battery I need and go for the one that is a good price. I have 8 for my K10-D, 4 for my K-5, 4 for my K-3 and I have never had any problems with either the batteries or the cameras.
I know some people like to use Pentax batteries but why pay 50 plus when you can get 2 for 10.99.

Because there's no excuse for falling down on a job. So, when shooting a wedding for example, one Pentax battery can last all day and did so just a week or so back. No second chances, so the original is the one to use.

We never have any problems with batteries.
Best regards, John

I have never had any issues with 3rd party batteries, regardless of system.
I always carry a few spares just in case, but none have ever let me down, and if shooting weddings or critical jobs, surely spares are a given.

Totally agree and have done exactly the same.

I have one of these as spare, and have been pleased with it.

I've never had any problems with any of the third party batteries I use even when using them all day, and because of the low cost I have plenty in reserve any way to cover any problems should they arise.

I have one Pentax and one Maxsima here in front of me, both weigh exactly 77 grammes, and look to be identical, the cynic in me says they are one and the same.

If anything, my Maxsimafoto lasts longer than the Pentax original.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass
