E-M1 Mark II Battery - India

Hi, Anyone from India here?

After a couple of photo walks in the jungle and bird park, I am feeling the need for an extra battery. I never thought of it earlier as my old Sony A100 used to last for a very long time, and I am new to mirrorless dynamics. 
I am not able to get E-M1.2 BLH-1 battery anywhere. The only one I could find is here. But it is very costly ($120 for Non-Indians). So following are the points I am wondering on:

  1. Are these batteries really that costly? Or is it just due to the global shortage?  
  2. Does any know where I can order one online or offline?
  3. Are the third-party options good and safe?
  4. Can we order from some other country at a lesser price?
  5. I also need a suggestion to charge batteries via USB in my car or via a power bank. Is that possible?
