All-
Please tell me if I've been hoodwinked by Butterfly Photo. (first time poster, btw)

I ordered a d50 18-55mm kit from Butterfly on thursday night. On friday morning, a sales rep talked me into ordering an additional battery for $59, calling it a "4 hr" battery. After doing some research i found that the battery he sold me has exactly the same model number as the battery that comes with the 18-55mm kit (EL-EN3), but sales dude ("George") was adamant that this was a different battery. He called it a "High Capacity" EL-EN3. right. It seems to me that if that was true, then they would give it a different model number. It was too late to change the order, so now I feel hoodwinked.

Please tell me: Is there really a "High capacity" EL-EN3 that is different than the EL-EN3 that comes with the kit?

Here the website for the "High capacity EL-EN3"
