Default FZ7 Batteries - Panasonic Plays Hardball

I bought a second battery (Lenmar) sometime after purchasing my FZ7. I see that the Pany battery still is good, but the Lenmar now runs down quickly (ie, lost capacity).

Im ready to buy some replacements, but I cant believe the price difference.
- S006B from Pany : $70 (effective)
- VidPro version from Battery Barn : $14

No wonder Pany wants to proprieterize their components. Two small LI-Ion batteries after tax & shipping from Pany would be over $150! I'll bet those batteries come from China & the manufacturing costs may not be even $2 a piece.
