I tend to feel Amazon Marketplace to be a pretty reliable way to purchase aftermarket accessories - there are users' reviews of products that help too.
An old thread started by our resident guru FishyComics:
for kd-klic 7004 kodak zi8 batt
I have just one cheapo KLIC-7004 bought via Amazon and it seems to work out to about 85-8% the capacity of the (2) OEM batteries I have at 19% the cost - real value for money.
I see well reviewed ones as low as $3.50 shipped
(unbelievable - it went up 1cent between posting and this edit!)
