Lithium Ion Batteries for Digi Cams-which ones?

Just picked up a Sony DSC-L1 camera and want to pick up an extra battery. Sony's is $59.99, but I've seen prices as low as $29.99 for brands like Digital Concepts. Then there are all the no name batteries that you can get for about $10-15 shipped.

Are the no name batteries even worth it? I can't see spending $60 for a battery when the camera only cost $199. I've always had cameras that used AA/AAA batteries so this is new to me.

I would get the generic. The only problem with the generic is that you will lose the battery life time estimate that's only found in Sony batteries.

Know of any reputable sites to buy from. A lot of the ones I've come across look a bit shaky, with no contact info.

I have purchased from www.sterlingtek.com for my Canon and Sony cameras. Members from www.dpreview.com and www.fredmiranda.com have purchased from them without any complaints.
