im not knocking any of the other batteries... im sure they work great for most people. alot of people dont have problems buying remanufactured electronics either.. it works and if its cheap then thats all that matters to some. Some people put regular unleaded in their sports cars as well.. and some people use $2 DV tapes in their cameras. its an individual choice.

Sure i make my $10 a battery profit and i could of just bought the "cheaper" cells instead and tried to get rich, but to me spending a little more for something better quality is worth it..specially on a $4000 camera. If it was for my $300 camcorder im sure i would go with the $25 batteries as well.

Jarred,

I would agree with you you 100% if it were true.

What I am saying is that many of these less expensive batteries are not of less quality. You seem to have fallen into the myth that the OEM's have pushed on all of us.

Didn't mean to offend, just my opinions and experience. Probably enough said on this subject on my part.

Cheers!

monte.. there is a difference trust me, I know its skeptical to trust me since im selling the things, but I have direct contact with the manufactures and there is a difference in cell chemistry, tooling, daughterboard construction etc, using gold contacts instead of nickel etc... This is not the case of a OEM just buying the same cells and charging more for the same product as a no name.

but like i said, whatever works for you is the best solution... if your happy with the cheaper batteries its all that matters, its really just a matter of personal choice. I agree, we could probally discuss this all night and day but its not really worth it.. the bottom line is people have a choice and thats always a good thing.

Jarred: You're right. If I personally knew you maybe I wouldn't be skeptical regarding your claims about the superiority of the batteries that you sell...but I don't know you so....

Can you substantiate your claim? Can you direct us to an unbiased review of the oem batteries compared with the less expensive alternatives that shows the less expensive ones to be inferior?

Best,

Jon

Batteries are fine, but be aware that delivery time can vary depending on Mr Lands other commitments. If you need them on a deadline I would recommend looking elsewhere.

I just shoot Jarred a PM before I order and ask if it's a good time. He'll tell you if he's held up or ready to rock. And just so nobody gets the wrong idea, his order site plainly says that he's not a full time battery salesman and that delays could occur depending on what's going on at the time. Also worthy of note is that for the longest time he sold them to us at HIS COST just to help the community! Pretty cool if you ask me. I've got 5 of em and wouldnt want to be at a wedding without em!
