Battery carger for K5 ... I need an extra one ... suggest?

Hello folks.

I am in the market to buy a second battery charger for my K5.
I am selling the K7 so the charger goes with it ....and I need that second charger for the "grip" battery.

Any deals out there that you may have come across?
Should I go with the OEM charger (expensive !!) or a "Knock off" one, as long at it won't damage the battery ?

All suggestions welcomed!

I've had good luck with the Wasabi one. And it has a 12v car charger plug in addition to the 110v mains plug.

I can also recommend the Wasabi setup. I've had one for the K-5/K-3 and one for the Q for over a year now. Both chargers and batteries have been top rate.

Thanks guys!

I found this: Amazon.com: Wasabi Power Battery (2-Pack) and Charger for Pentax D-LI90 and Pentax 645D, K-01, K-3, K-5, K-5 II, K-5 IIs, K-7: Camera & Photo

That looks like a good deal ?

That is exactly what I got. I leave the OEM charger in my studio and take the Wasbi along on trips. It is much handier.
