After Market Batteries for NEX 7 ?

I received my NEX 7 and chargerd the battery fully. I have been reading the instructions and fooling around with the camera to try to figure it out, taking, maybe a dozen snapshots of no value, other than to see how everything functions. I continued to play with it this morning, and the battery is DEAD already! Wow, My Sony A900 battery lasts forever on a charge!
Has anyone purchased an "After Market" battery and charger? The Sony battery is $53. Ebay has a a battery AND charger for about $17. I want to save a few bucks, but not harm the camera. What has been your experience?
Thanks in advance.

Re: After Market Batteries for NEX 7 ?

Thanks to Hot, I bought a few from HK (see post #7 here: http://forum.getdpi.com/forum/sony/3...er-update.html). I use the original Sony charger.

Works like a charm with no issues.

BTW, US $53 is CHEAP! You should look up the average EU prices!!

Just received a Wasabi kit from Amazon. Used them with my 5N with no issues. Used one today with the 7 and no issues either. Battery seems to be drinking at same rate as the Sony battery...
