I've looked at the battery barn before. But I wasn't sure which ones he actually liked. I've heard some people complain that some after market batteries seem to stop holding a full charge quicker than the OEM ones.

I like that the after market ones are much cheaper, but I want something of atleast the same quality.

Hmmm, I bought them with a near dealer, they are made in Japan, have golden contacts and 1350 mAh. I use them now since ~ 4 weeks and they work well.

Charged some times, they last for 500 pictures (including some flashes etc.)

I think all "branded" batteries are overpriced - they are not made by Canon or so. Why pay the 4x - 5x price.

Same some years ago with memory cards ... 4x price, ... but only for the brand/label.

I've got mine 1500mAH from B&H (+$4.95 Fedex supersaver):
