it was SUCH a bad idea to call the one battery "109" and the other "190"
..except that the K-50 battery is "Li109" and the K-3 battery is "Li90". On the label and on product listings, they look deceptively the same.

Third-party knock-offs of all of these accessories are out there. I recommend that you check reviews before buying anything that isn't genuine. Wasabi products (as mentioned above) do work well.
1+ on the Wasabi product, though I would caution that the charger that they bundle is a "rapid"-type charger (two contacts) and does not do a regulated trickle charge in the same manner as the original article (four contacts).

Argh, my memory was combining two other discussions - the D-Li90 being replaced by the D-Li90P with the addition of the 4th contact, and a thread about vendors selling "D-Li190" batteries (some of which turned out to be 90s, and some dyslexic 109s, or something like that).

Have had good luck with Wasabi for the Pentax. Got a bad one (of two) for the GoPro.
