Battery for AC-130

Has anyone used these batteries in an AC-130?

I just got my AC-130 and need a second battery. I don't particularly want to pay $130 for another Panasonic battery unless I have to. I got a generic battery from the same place for my XH-A1 a while back and it works great and lasts a long time, but I figured I might as well check to see if anyone has experience with this particular battery before I buy one.

Re: Battery for AC-130

That looks a lot like the Lenmar batteries I tried. I can tell by the ribbing on te side. Run away from them, NOT reliable at all! Mine would not take/hold a charge. Neither was recognized by my AC160, and one of my HMC150's came back with a "remove defective battery" message.
I'd just stick with the Panasonic batteries, more reliable and you won't get the feeling that you've just wasted all that money on something that may not even work when you need it most.
