    I have been using off-brand batteries for years. No problems so far.

    IIRC Mike uses Canon gear.

    Nikon batteries have some electronics on them that let the camera know how much battery life (not charge) remains. Many 3rd party batteries don't get the battery electronics to camera communication protocol right and the batteries don't work right.
