I wouldn't buy that battery unless there is a reliable full-refund return
policy (like with Amazon Prime). As the proverb says: "I am not rich
enough to buy cheap things".
A lot of stores are sloppy with posting specs and photos of their
products, especially small accessories.
Zeikos battery that I bought from Buydig was listed by BuyDig/BeachCamera
as being a 3.7 V battery (as opposed to the OEM rated at 7.2 V) for a long
period of time, even after I've shown them a proof.
I've posted that story back in 2011 on this list:
And that store was considered one of the better once, at least back then.
(I thought it slid down since then, but resellerratings still rates them

Have a look at this:
It *says* it's a Pentax battery ("from Pentax") but it doesn't show
the bottom of the battery where the branding is. The specs given check
out but the price makes me very suspicious. I'm not trying this one!
