Default Reliable online source for replacement batteries?

I'm looking for a replacement battery for my Canon T2i to use as a backup. First they are not easy to find anywhere. Amazon has them but a significant number of people have claimed they received counterfeit batteries. If I run a significant risk of getting a counterfeit battery I might as well buy 3rd party and save some money.

So I'm looking for a reliable online vendor. DiamondBack and Sterlingtek.com were recommended in other posts but neither carry the LP-E8 replacement batteries. Neither does B&H.

Can anyone recommend a reliable site for getting quality replacement batteries?

Since in my searching it seems that most people are just looking for a reliable site from which to purchase batteries maybe we need a sticky thread listing sites where people can state their good or bad experiences with replacement battery sites or particular brands of replacement batteries.

ebay is where I got mine for the T1i, they work fine and has a very good cost savings.

But if you want a store to deal with adorama has flashpoint ones that also work fine. And still less then the oem ones.
