Good US source for K10d/K20d generic batteries???

I know this topic was beat to death years ago, but as the years have gone by some of the data may be out of date. I am looking for a US source for good batteries for my K10d. I know some of you will say OEM is the way to go, but I cannot justify spending 25% of what I paid for the camera just to get one extra battery. Has anyone bought batteries recently? Who/where did you buy them, and how did it work out?

I use wasabi brand batteries on my K5. They last as long as the oem batteries and are way cheaper. Not to mention they come bundled with a very convenient charger, I no longer use the Pentax charger ' cause it's too bulky. Here's a link.

I think that is the same as the cheap ones from ebay e.g., D LI90 Battery Charger with Car Adapter for Pentax D LI90 | eBay. I have not used it yet.

Edit: I bought some cheap batteries and found that their quality control may be a little low. I got one bad one (out of two) which won't hold charge at all and the seller agreed to send me a replacement. The second one (for K5) needed to be charged for extended period of time before it became usable. I have not tested to see how long it will hold charge or how many shots I can take with it. These batteries were very inexpensive -- may be $5 each shipped.
