I have no idea where my underwear come from and where children toys the kids chew on come from. I am more concern about toxic dyes used on these products than over a camera battery.

90% of things we buy come from Asia and we have no clue who manufactures them. Why is it a concern now?

I doubt that these Ebay imports even care about some US labeling law.

Americans buy huge number of "no-name" batteries from Asia. I see that in the remote control toys/hobby industry too. US is flooded with these quality batteries sold for a fraction of what similar packs go for in brick stores.

I doubt that someone in Asia would build a factory to supply products for Ebay market only. I would speculate that these factories produce batteries for brand names electronic manufacturers only. I doubt that they would make "Ebay" packs to a different standards.

Battery is simple to make. It either work or it does not. Given the currents the pack does not need to be super high technologically advanced cutting edge. It is the same pack that is in your cell phone.
