Default Rechargeable Battery NP-FH50

I am interested on buying the Sony DSLR a 230L with 18-55mm zoom lense camera.
It takes a NP-FH50 rechargeable Battery, so I researched this Battery on the Internet and what I found strange was that this Battery was always mentioned in connection with a camcorder not with a camera. Why would that be, or did I just miss this write-up?
The store recommended this Battery for the Sony SLR a230 L.
Can you tell me anything about this particular Battery and what can one expect to pay for one? It is a Lithium Battery which I got to like very much, have one in my Nikon P3 and they run forever. Thanks in advance for your help.

Calendula-

I just cross checked the battery now in place in my Sony A-230 camera. Yes, indeed it is the NP-FH50 battery. My assumption is that it is used in both Sony's DSLR cameras and in their video cameras. The lowest price on the battery that I could find was $(US)12.99 from a retailer in Hong Kong.

Sara if its the same place in Hong Kong I ordered a spare battery from for my Sony A200 it took me 4 1/2 weeks for the batteries to arrive...... it was not worth the less price due to amount of time it took to arrive.
