Q. Are your batteries branded and are they good quality?
A. We only stock high quality unbranded batteries, as we believe they represent fantastic value for money. They are designed to replicate the original manufacturers' version and in many cases will hold more ‘juice'. We sold over 30,000 batteries last year and our return rate was incredibly low. Why? - Because we have worked hard to constantly source better quality products. No product is let loose on our website before it is fully tested for consistency of quality. Our unbranded batteries have never damaged a camera or camcorder.
Q. What does the term 'non-oem' mean?
A. The term ‘oem’ stands for original equipment manufacturer. An oem part is made by the same company that made the item the part goes with. A non-OEM part is made by a different company. Therefore our products are all 100% compatible with the major camera and camcorder manufacturers such as Sony, Canon etc but they are not manufactured by them.
Q. Can unbranded batteries damage my camera?
A. No. You are just a likely to damage your camera using the battery that came supplied with it. There is no evidence to support manufacturer’s claims that you must use their, much more expensive, branded batteries.
Q. Where do you manufacture your products?
A. We do not manufacture our products ourselves. The majority of our products are produced for us in the Shenzhen province of China.

A. Yes. If you purchase a product from us that states having a longer warranty than 2 years, we will of course honour that warranty.
