For anyone investing in batteries, this (http://t5r.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/e1/clonetests.htm) site has some very useful information:

I've just orded a Uniross clone, which seems as if it will outperform the Oly one and is costing me 18 with shipping.

I've been using some Uniross ones to suppliment my single Oly original for a few years now, and they have been great. No noticable difference (but I haven't tested) between them and still going strong. Huge saving as well :)

I picked up 4 of the Uniross ones ( Uniross VB104295) from Amazon UK (not there 3rd party sellers) at the end of November they were selling them at 7.90 each! with free shipping.

Like your link states, they are better then the originals a a fraction the price.

:(

Serves me right for buying batteries from a battery supplier.

PC World are doing the original version of the 14-45 (the F3.5-4.5 one) for £80.

I wonder if Netto have any FL-50's in? :)
