Spare HMC batteries

Hi all

I was just wondering what everyone is using for a spare set of batteries for either the HMC70 or 150. Due to the ID security in the battery you cannot use any generic battery (unless some company have figured out a way of bypassing it!!)

The only company I can see that Panasonic have allowed to produce batteries is IDX ..otherwise you are stuck with Pananasonic which here are crazy prices!!! ($300 for the 2640mah!!!)

Who's using what for their backup set???

Can you mail order the Panasonic battery for about $200AUD + shipping? That should be under the $300AUD local cost.
