Pros: excellent replacement, strong long lasting charge.
Cons: none yet

What's the difference between a generic D-Li90 and a pentax D-Li90, particularly since they both have made in China on the back? Same chems inside, plastic case, circuit board, emanating from some manufactory in the east. Well, if you've ever tried some real cheapo cells, as I have, then you may have found, as I did, that treating items like this as a commodity may not work. After a few months half of that job lot of rechargeable AAA's had already been binned!
However the no-name generic D-Li90 battery I acquired off ebay 3 years ago has done well enough. It's still going ok, it was the original Pentax one that began to really lose its capacity to hold charge - that was at least a couple of years older mind you.
I did quite a bit of browsing pondering the dilemma. One thing was sure: the pentax own labels at 60 odd were way OTT price wise. Sorry pentax but no deal. Then I spotted one of these, "new other", on ebay. I had already had good experience with Ansmann AA's and AAA's so the brand name had value for me. And the price was advantageous - near half the typical new price indicated above.
So far: A1+++++. Lasts at least 50% longer than the still adequate generic.
In a commodities market where it is next to impossible from the outside to distinguish the good from the rubbish and the price differences have an arbitrary or profiteering character, a trustworthy brand name that reassures as to quality can pay dividends. I can suggest Ansmann is a name you can look out for.

UPDATE 1/20. Both this battery and my two other ones are showing deteriorating performance. They all work but I have to swap them in and out much more frequently. A mornings photography with a fair amount of use of Live View will often use up a batteries charge on my k3.
