Good quality source for batteries

One of the agreed weaknesses of the S100 is battery life. It uses a standard NB-5L type. Most of the ones listed on Amazon have reviews that indicate less real-life power compared to the original. I would love to have a backup or two, but need to find a cheaper source with at least the same power density and I need to avoid the scams.

You get what you pay for. If you really want one that lasted as long as the original, bite the bullet and get the Canon battery. I got a Lenmar one, and although it charges fine and fits the camera, it lasted way shorter than the original battery. Still not bad considering the price and for backup. I'm kinda wary of the really dirt cheap no-name ones as you never know how safe they pack those lithium ion cells in it.
