Spare Battery

Im going on holiday soon and thought i would definitely need a spare battery for my a330.

Where is the best place to get one of these? Also, is it essential that i get a Sony one, as i have seen cheaper versions (I'm guessing you get what you pay for though right?)

Cheers.
I have a $10 knock off that works fine. Might be that the roulette was in my favour that day when I bought it. But, no problems, and capacity is the same or better than Sony's.
I have 2 Sony batteries, but from what I've heard, it doesn't really matter. Especially if you can get 2 batteries for the price of 1 Sony battery.

I have four batteries for my a330. The original sony one, an energizer one bought for £39.99 and two cheap ones for about £10 on ebay and amazon. To be quite honest I can't really tell the difference in performance between them. But one thing about charging the battery I have read is that when the light goes out on the charger the battery is not fully charged, it needs to be left on for about 1 hour more to be fully charged.
