Adorama carries some Lenmar varieties. I got one for the K20D. They may have one for your camera.

Most OEM batteries are made elsewhere, too, and rebranded :-)

thanks for the referral - I saw some on Amazon, but it's not clear if they fit or not. if no one has tried some other brands, I guess I'll be the guinea pig and will let others know what I find. Wish me luck!

By any chance does the W80 share the same battery as the W90?

found a link on fleabay - only $5 shipped! hope it works...

will update once I know for sure...

BATTERY EN-EL11 ENEL11 For Pentax Optio M50,W80 ~NEW~ - eBay (item 130426638839 end time Oct-29-10 23:31:35 PDT)

re: whether w80 battery fits w90 - the ebay site does not say that this battery is compatible w/ the w90, so it does not think they think it's the same. as to value their expetise is another question...

I would pass on that one. It's only 680mah. I picked up two for about the same price each that are 1300mah (twice the capacity).

I got mine from here:
2x Battery For PENTAX D-LI88 DLI88 DLI-88 Optio P70 W90 - eBay (item 250649652584 end time Nov-08-10 16:34:40 PST)

But!!! Verify elsewhere that it will fit yours before you order. Don't want to end up with the wrong batteries. And, if they are the wrong one's, find some with more than 680mah.

1300mAh is a misprint. The Lenmar D-L188 is 740mAh just like the OEM. I've used it in my W90 and the D-L18 in my W20 without problems. It is physicaly impossible to fit that much mAh in that small package.

looks like the d-li78, the oem battery has 680 ma so hopefully the generic is really equal to the oem. I should have it in a couple days and I'll update here.

I don't know anything about the construction of batteries, and I am not trying to argue what you say, but my eBay batteries last longer (more picturers per charge) than the battery that came with the camera.

well, used the new battery from ebay yesterday and all is working well. Haven't taken a lot of pictures yet, but it fits and the camera operates fine with it. not bad for $5 bucks... I'll update more later.
