Spare camera battery - OEM or generic?

22 January 2009 - 12:37 PM

Hopefully title says it all.

Im very new to all this and have a Nikon D80 for which I am looking to buy a spare battery - should I pay top dollar for a Nikon battery, or would a generic same-size from some guy in taiwan do just as well? The generics seems to have the same rating as the Nikon battery (1500mAh), so does anyone know if they are just as good as the real thing? Or are there known problems with these things? (I.e. dont last as long, leakage, blowing up etc etc)

I know this isnt strictly an underwater-only question, but the added hindrance of being underwater whilst changing a battery means Id rather pay a few quid if Im going to get a better battery life from the thing.

Any opinions?
