Is it worth spending the extra money for the canon battery or is a cheaper equivalent batter just as good?

In most cases (except Sony InfoLithium) the generic Li-ion batteries are OK but note that if you have one in the camera and send it in for warranty work they will void your warranty. Not all generics are the same though - some are fire hazards because they lack the proper temperature protection circuits - when in doubt stick with the manufacturer's battery.
