Pentax K5 II, Wasabi, Positive -- I interchange these with my OEM batteries and can't tell any difference.

Clarification -- With the Wasabi batteries, I use their charger. With OEM batteries, I use the OEM charger.

For my Sony cameras, I have had good results with Wasabi BTR-FW50-JWP; and BM Premium BM-NPFW50 batteries. Gives me similar performance as Sony's NP-FW50 OEM battery. Newmowa makes great affordable and compact dual chargers. Amazon has deals with two batteries and the charger. Saved a ton off the OEM prices. Cheers

Canon: Vivitar for two canons. Batteries just over 1year old. Still strong last as long as OEM

I have three cameras, Olympus, Sony, Nikon. I use these for different situations. For all three I only use Kaster batteries and chargers. I also use the original batteries and chargers. Kester batteries are great just as good as original and their customer service is out standing!

Canon 6D, 7DII, 5DIV and 80D (all use the same battery). Wasabi Power batteries, a total of 8, oldest a bit over 4 years. Still going strong. One tip, because some of the older Wasabi's only lasted when charged on their brand chargers and the new Wasabi chargers are compatible with Canon OEM also I only use the Wasabi chargers. Besides they hold two batteries at once, not one.

Nikon D800, Nikon D5300 & Sony RX10iii - On all three I use Watson batts as my backup artery - no difference from the OEM.

Wow! I'm hearing all kinds of different non-OEM battery brands that I wasn't even aware of.

Nikon batteries and Watson seem similar, Wasabi charge not last as long.
