Any one who uses a cheap chinese knock off battery in my mind is playing with fire and I mean fire. A friend of mind had a Sony A77 with a Sony Battery Grip loaded with these batteries. We were out one day shooting bracket and Larry put down his camera, the next thing the Grip was smoking. Lucky enough we got the battery grip off the camera but we could not get the batteries out of the grip it was melted inside. The grip was a throw away but the camera was find.
