At 2x the capacity of the OEM battery, this one looks a bit suspicious IMO.

The Wasabi brand on Amazon is pretty good. $27 for 2 batteries and a nice wall charger. 2300 mAh.

Adam, where are you getting 2x the capacity? The OEM pentax one is 1860 mAh.

Oh. Duh. I either typoed or google autocorrected me incorrectly. I was looking at the D-LI90 -- the one the K5 and company use. Sorry!

At any rate, Wasabi seems to make good stuff. They're not the cheapest, but they're less than Pentax for comparable quality, and their charger is much less clumsy to use than the Pentax one.

Yes, everyone that got the Wasabi gave it 5 stars on Amazon. I just ordered 1 battery, so it doesn't come with a charger.
