All batteries last same amount of time. Maybe there are some fake ones that are really bad. I haven't encountered them luckily.

No, they really don't. The original (Sony) battery that was supplied with my Nex-3 is still able to hold enough charge to take about 100 pictures. The next summer I bought a cheap (ebay) spare - it was fine for about a year but nowadays holds it's charge for about 10 (yes, ten) pictures if I am lucky. The following summer I bought a more expensive copy on Amazon (it had a German name), this one was 'good' for longer, but now I am lucky if I get 30 shots out of it.

Well, I was specifically talking about my batteries Wasabi vs Sony - those last about same. Should have been more specific. As for ebay cheap batteries I agree there are some really bad ones.

My two Wasabi batteries don't hold a charge like my original Sony batteries and a few other Power 2000 batteries I bought. I was surprised because the Wasabi batteries are the third party option usually recommended here. I'll charge them to 100% and a week later they will lose up to 15% without use. One is worse than the other. The the Sony batteries I have that came with my cameras are solid. I hate to hear there may be fake Sony batteries around.
