Have a great weekend, my friends.
I have received today a package of 2 pieces of 3rd party (dste) LP-E12 and a DC 136 charger which I have purchased online from a Ebay vendor "Dstebattery". I offered $18 for the above and was accepted. Tracking number was provided with no extra cost. Warranty period is 2 years.
I bought from them before and their batteries are of decent quality. It happened once that one of their LP-E8 s became weak in less than a year's time. I emailed them and got a replacement in 2 weeks.
Just for your info.
