The prices for the EN-EL14 battery in England with the prices converted to US$ are $78.99 but includes tax@ 20% that is for the genuine Nikon one. $22 for the (who knows what you are buying) one.
With a lot of items in the States we pay in £'s what you pay in $'s.
When things are too good to be true, they are probably not.
I did see a video of inserting a genuine Nikon battery into a two battery pack and adding a pirate battery which fools the camera, then replacing the Nikon battery with another pirate battery. But then with heavy use would the pirate batteries fail and damage the camera. Can you take that chance on a $500 -$1000 camera. Photography is an expensive but exciting hobby, or you could just be a couch potato and watch the soaps.
