Any OEM battery for the K20D compatible with original charger?

Has anyone recently bought online an oem K20D battery that works with the original charger? Please give me the link because it seems whats available requires its own designated charger according to the sellers.

Thanks in advance.

Thank you for the quick response but looking more towards ebay, taobao and etc because b&h as well as adorama international shipping is too expensive for just batteries and i dont have anything else to buy or anyone to buy with.

Sorry to trouble you.

I bought a third-party battery for my K20D several years ago, and it's still going strong. I don't recall offhand who the eBay seller was, though I suspect it was bundled with the third-party grip, which is also still working.

Is your battery like above? And charging using the original charger?[

I have a number of third-party batteries for both my K20D and K5II.

Every one of them works with the original Pentax charger(s), and when you think about it since they work with the camera they therefore must have exactly the same contacts etc. as the original batteries, ergo they'll work in the original charger(s) too?

Similar, of course, with the two contacts, although the labelling is a little different, and it does charge with the Pentax charger.

I think most batteries will work. My spare battery is a Tokina made for Minolta, and it works fine on my K20D! It came with the camera when I bought it.
The main battery is of course a Pentax. It does last longer, twice as long at least! So if I was spending money to get another battery, I'd get the Pentax for sure.
