What other batteries are there besides Anton Bauer & IDX?

Hi,

My current AB battery needs replacing and I'm wondering if you guys know other brands that are less expensive? I know IDX, but those are V-mount and I heard some bad stories of them just falling off...

There are lots of Anton Bauer compatible batteries on eBay, with a 95 WH battery starting at $130 US : https://goo.gl/YJZCbS

As someone who solely uses V-mount batteries I've never had one 'just falling off'. Sure, an intern once hooked it up crooked and he dropped it after that...but thats just clumsyness. Once they are in place...they stay in place.

And there are TONS of brands who make them....

Thanks for the tips!
I'm not sure how trustworthy are the batteries from eBay, do you have experience with them?
Also while browsing I found this site http://www.comparebroadcastbatteries.com/ which mention some BCB batteries that seem to be highly rated by the author. Do you guys know anything about it?
