New battery and holder info please

I've just bought my K-r, it is great. I'd like to buy a spare battery are there any good manucturers or is it best to stick to genuine Pentax?. I've purchased from ebay for other cameras and they are generally useless.

I'd also like a battery holder for emergencies, I've seen some on ebay for a few pounds/dollars, has anyone tried them or again should I stick to Pentax?

I use the Pentax adapter with eneloop's and it's a great setup, I would have ordered the non Pentax but didn't know it was av available, I also use a non Pentax D-LI109 1300mAh replacement from Amazon and so far it works well

I bought an aftermarket K-R battery holder and it works fine.

I've ordered an ebay battery holder, I'll report back on how it works.

I also ordered a spare battery from Innov8, more expensive than the chinese ebay versions but only half the price of a Pentax original.

Thanks for all your help.
