G2 spare battery

Has anyone any thoughts/experience of spare batteries for the G2?

I've seen Hahnel and Energiser both make one for around 25-30 so I assume these are therefore "approved" by Panasonic but 7dayshop (who I've found good in the past) have a clone for under a tenner!

I don't really understand all this security id-protection but I don't want to damage anything in the camera or invalidate the warranty.

Thanks

Re: G2 spare battery

I use a "Digital" third party battery bought through Ebay. I asked the seller if it was compatible with the G2. He said it was, and it does work just fine.

That looks like mine. Can't remember if I bought from this guy or not - can't just find the email, but he sounds familiar. It works fine, though (touch wood!).
