New A7RIV battery warning.

I have been using non Sony branded batteries (Wasabi brand) in my A7RIII for almost a year and have never never had any kind of problems or seen any kind of warning. I just got a new A7RIV, and when using one of these batteries, I am getting a warning saying that "the operation and safety of this battery cannot be guaranteed. Continue use?"

Is this anything to be concerned with? Can I assume that since these batteries have worked fine in the RIII then they should be fine in this new camera? Is this just Sony's way of trying to force me to spend double to triple the price for a genuine Sony battery?

Opinions please. Has anyone personally ever used a non branded battery and had any ill effects?
