There's no way you'd see me waste another cent on Impact brand batteries. I bought 3 for the K10D and used them regularly. Even though they were rated at a higher Mah than the Pentax, they never lasted as long on a charge. All three got regular use (not sitting around) and died within 12 months. My original (3 year old) K10D battery is still working and I now have 6 of them. No issues with OEM batteries.

As for trying 3rd party batteries that are not exactly to spec. You won't find me trying to save $5.00 and potentially damaging a $1299 camera.
Zack,

That is the feeling I'm getting from around the net, I think I should give this idea up.

The L-190 battery on the right looks exactly like the Nikon ENEL3E. Both have the same indents, three contact points, etc.
Look again. It looks differently and doesn't mechanically fit.

Looks like I'll order a couple of L-190's for each camera when available, and leave it at that !
