I've used Watson's in my Pentax cameras, and am very pleased with their performance, as well.

Thanks everyone for your comments, but it'll seem it doesn't matter. None of these are available locally, and once you include shipping for those few that do ship to Croatia, it ends up being more expensive than locally sourcing the original battery.

I have also used the third party batteries like Newmowa ones and found them to be quite good as well at a fraction of the price of original batteries.

I'm in a bit of a spot looking for these too here in Korea. A few years ago I got a local brand, horusbennu, which were good, but after like 3-4 years now, they've both given up the ghost, and swelled a little. So no longer good. My original 109 still holds a bit of a charge, but nowhere near what it used to. I tried to buy the horusbennu again, but they've stopped making them. You can't get a battery in country for under $80-90 bucks right now. So my only alternative is something like aliexpress. B&H can't ship a lithium to me. The only other in country choices are just a few people reselling the ones from aliexpress for like 3-4x the price so I might as well order direct from them. Anyone ever tried any of the brands on Aliexpress?

I'm seeing brands like:

Powtree (one blue @ 7.4v, and one orange @ 7.2v)
Ring Team, digital boy, mllse, durapro, (all the same sticker as the blue powtree)
cameron sino
Wireless Efficiency

anyone ever tried any of these?

What chargers can you recommend? Watson Duo LCD charger?
Not all replacement batteries have the same Wh rating, so sometimes you have to expect 10-30% less performance based on that.

Wasabis were ok for first 2 years but then deteriorated quickly. Original is steel fine, for 6 years now.

I bought a pair of unknown brand replacements off of eBay 2 years ago, for about the US$20 range. I see no difference in capacity or longevity.
