They are on a buy now status for $ 9.95. Is it to good to be true?
I mean I wonder will they last. I'm sure someone will tell me >>>" you pay for what you get "<<<right ?

They're always tempting, we do love a good price. You can't really be sure of what you're getting in those clone batteries. Some are perfectly fine and others just don't to seem to last as long as OEM batteries or they don't work at all. If you do use one, just be sure that you don't leave it in the camera if it goes for service repair or they'll void your warranty on the spot. I prefer to pay more and know that what I am getting has fully met the manufacturer's requirements.

I bought two batteries for my Canon S30 off Ebay for like $15 shipped to my door. So far I've had no problems and they seem to outlast the Canon battery that came with the camera.

Maybe I just got lucky, but I thought I'd at least let you know that Ebay worked great for me.

I've bought 3 for my Camcorders, price for original JVC 1700mAh in the UK is about £58 ($105) the last 2 I bought from a seller in Germany for under £7 (US$13) plus shipping, these are 2300mAh and are proving to be excellent, according to his info they contain Panasonic cells.
