    Where can I buy a spare Ricoh GR 3rd party battery. I have seen Wasabi makes them but I have read conflicting stories as to whether they fit properly.

    A link to a site that sells the replacements would be most welcome.

    Thank you,

    I've had good experience with Wasabi batteries for my OMD.

    The Wasabi works fine for me, the Sigma DPxM's battery also works for GR.

    I purchased the Wasabi batteries for my GR on Amazon and they fit, and work, just fine.

    Just a tip guys,

    since Ricoh GRs are getting quite popular some 3rd parties batteries are a bit more expensive, therefore i tried some Sigma DP batteries BP41 which fit my GR perfectly. and cheaper.
    So i personally use the OEM battery plus to Sigma BP41 one as spare. they all last the same.

    Just be sure the groove is big enough, my first set of aftermarkets for the GR had a groove too small - they were labelled "for CGA-S005E". Thankfully, the replacements labelled "for CGA-S005E" worked a treat.
    NB: Yep, they were named exactly the same but it seems to come down to luck of the draw and the small groove versions won't fit the GR; door doesn't shut.

    Can also vouch for the Wasabi Batteries great value and they even offer a car charger and European plug adapter as well.
