... like 7DayShop is that they don't produce or have products produced to their own specs. They don't stand behind them other than some manufacturer warranty - which is mostly useless anyhow. They get their batteries from the lowest cost Chinese suppliers. So while 7DayShop may have a decent battery now, it might be garbage from a different manufacturer in China 6 months from now. Their reputation does not hinge on how good their batteries are. They sell thousands of other products.

As mentioned, the only exception I make is Lenmar because they specialize in batteries and stand behind products designed to their specs. I discovered them for video camera batteries years ago and have always been pleased with their quality. Their only business is batteries and they guarantee their product for 2 or 3 years in some cases. There may be other battery specialists like Lenmar that I am unaware of.

Known battery manufacturers like Uniross and Energizer equivalent batteries should be OK if you can find them.
