Why is Nikon safer? If a non-Nikon battery shorts out your camera,
or leaks, or blows up, or whatever, do you think you'll get Nikon
to repair it under warranty at their expense? Nope.

How many posts you've read in this or any other forum about somebody who had a battery that shorts out the camera, leask, blows up ...

Zero.

In the big scheme of things, is an extra $30 worth the peace of
mind? In my book it is.

But using a Nikon battery may not give others feel any additional peace of mind. In which case saving the $30 is perfectly reasonable.
