Seeing as how this thread has been resurrected, I would like to update my first post on this.
Over here the EN-EL14 sells from between £69 and £49 at High st dealers.I found imitation Nikon batts online for £7 ??
The cheapest Hahnel equivalent I could find on line was £32.50 so I paid £37 with free delivery for a genuine Nikon battery through a Nikon recommended on line dealer.
I personally think Nikon is right not to allow people to put cheap batteries into their cameras.
If they allow any battery to be used you can bet someone will put a £7 one in, with possible warranty claims involved.
I dont think there has ever been a Sigma or Tamron lens that has caused damage to camera bodies but lots of battery damage.
