Camera manufactures try to block the use of these batteries for good reasons.

Correct, that reason being so that they can sell you a battery for 5 times the price. They could care less if your camera burns up due to a 3rd party battery, it's just more business for them!

I've used third party batteries for years on multiple cameras and have never had a problem with them. In fact many have been better then the OEM batteries.
