Default Replacement Battery: Anyone use these?

Hey guys,

Anyone use these batteries for replacement? Pros, cons? One is the same size 700mAh and the other two are 1000mAh. One of the 1000's is 39.00 and the other is only 11.99.....sounds too good to be true for 11.99.

c'mon....someone has had to buy a replacement battery already. I know mine is on the way out and I am looking for a better "half-life". ANYONE who has replaced their battery , let me know where you got it and what you think of it....PLEASE! Mine is about as worthless as a second A-hole.

TIA

I am actually interested in getting a battery also. I saw this one:
Ebay
It looks like a cameron sino which are good batteries I have one in my F series (not this particular battery) and it lasts longer than others I have seen and used.

Edit:
I did a quick search and found this site. I don't know them but it comes with a 30 day return and 1 year warranty.
www.infinitybatteries.com

Or this one

I bought one that looks just like the one in your third link, on ebay, but from a different seller. It was sealed in the package but lasts only two hours in the gigabeat. These lithium ion batteries last only 2-3 years, used or not. I expect that other sellers also have old stock with warn out shelf life. If anyone knows where to get a fresh, newly-manufactured gigabeat S battery, I would very much like to know about it.
