Has anyone used aftermarket batteries for their Fuji? (Watson, Duracell, etc)

Has anyone used any third party batteries (specifically the WP-126/WP-126s type) in their Fuji cameras?

I'm needing to get about 3-4 spare batteries before vacation as sort of don't want to pay the $65/battery price tag.

The Duracell's were about $30 each, and the Watson's are about $20 I think. Up to this point, I've only used OEM, but I'm starting to wonder if maybe I'm over paying and could get similar performance from a 3rd party/non-OEM battery.  My biggest concern is potential damage to the camera, and as long as I can get 70-80% of the life that would be fine since they cost about 1/2 or 1/3 of an OEM battery.

Thoughts?
