Eh? See screenshot from Amazon below...Meike and Zeikos are most definitely available on Amazon, as are others.
I had a Meike - it felt OK, clearly not as solid as the MB-D11, but I could live with that.
One morning, I picked up the camera to grab a shot, and found both batteries were stone-cold discharged, and that's not how they were when I was done using it last - in fact, the in-camera battery had not even been used yet.
That convinced me to just use MB-D11's going forward.
