I'm looking to get some extra batteries for my Canon xl2, and the namebrand ones from Canon are expensive, based on the rates at bhphoto. I was looking at some generic ones instead, perhaps on ebay, but the risk is obviously, am I buying a piece of junk? Would anyone be able to recommend a good maker of generic batteries?

Best,
BR

It depends, sometimes the generics with have the exact same cells and electronics from the exact same factory, sometimes not.
