I've often bought third party batteries rather than the Pentax branded ones. I can't speak to a good USA source, I buy mine from Battery Canada. Actually, with the advantageous value the US dollar has at the moment, they might be a good source for American buyers. I've found that batteries from them are about a quarter the cost of Pentax batteries, have very nearly the same capacity and have almost the same life expectancy as well.

If I were a pro on an important shoot or a machine-gunner I would suggest sticking to OEMs. Otherwise I can recommend Watsons.

I have bought both original and third party. OEM are always reliable and Pentax one's aren't that expensive. Try buying a spare Fuji battery! Third party can be a lottery. Some are good, some are bad. Many have nice specs on paper but don't deliver. You'll have to get to know the brands.

I have several third party batteries for my Fuji X-T2. I’ve not ever had a problem. They seem to give equally as bad number of shots per charge as the oem ones.

My experience is Pentax original equipment batteries are very good.
