3rd Party Batteries

I was looking to get a longer lasting battery for my A40, I see some high mA batteries out there that seem promising but I dont wanna blow up my camera either. Anyone take the plunge on any betteries and live to tell about it?

I've used several 3rd party brands in various P&S, currently using an INCA within my work Lumix, bought a similar brand for sons M50 which he took away to Japan - they appear to charge & work as normal - however they are they same capacity as the OEM.

I'm convinced they all last about the same - and cost less than 1/2 price so just buy more. I'm not sure I would buy those on Ebay however. Purchased all of mine from camera shops.

I've been using Duracell 2650mah batteries in my Optio 33WR. They work fine and last OK.
