Longer lasting battery options?

Hi all, I'm wondering if there's a longer lasting third party battery option to the BLS50?  I find that even having 3 BLS50 fully charged isn't really enough for me, each battery lasts about 600 shots before giving me the warning.  Is there any third party alternative that can get me to 1000 or more shots?  I dont use the flash and I only use S-AF so not sure what is making the battery discharge after 2 hours of shooting.

Also, I'd like a third party charger option.  The BLS50 charger is clunky and large and has a long charger cord, I'd prefer a smaller flatter charger with that plugs right into the wall (no charger cord)....is there anything like that out there?  Thanks!

In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together.
-Dwight D. Eisenhower, 1961
