GoPro Charger & Spare Batteries

For christmas Santa brought the kids a GoPro Silver Hero 4, a gift that really seems to have hit the mark, though I wouldn't be surprised if from time to time the camera finds its way boat-mounted whilst dad goes fishing.

Seeking advice on a charger and in particular spare batteries. Are the aftermarket options safe, or better to stick with the GoPro originals?

Thanks in Advance

Seal,

I've found the Smatree branded batteries pretty good, should be plenty of them on eBay.

I've used the cheapo aftermarket batteries in my Hero 3+ for about 6 months and haven't had a problem with them, although they don't last as long as the official GoPro ones. Three batteries and a USB charger cost me $20 off eBay, I can PM you the seller's name if you like.

Thanks for the info fellas.

Ordered a charger & 2x batteries for under $20, so will see how they go.

Cheers
