FWIW, in 2007 I bought some spare 5D (mk I) non-canon batteries on ebay from a chinese seller. Those have worked well, and also have a considerably higher mAh capacity and last correspondingly longer when shooting.

Of a total of 2 canon original batteries from 2006, 1 is still working
Of a total of 4 non-canon batteries from 2007, 3 are still working
