I don't understand why you would purchase from Asia.. and then complain that it takes some time to get them.. it's on the other freaking side of the planet..
It turns out to about $18 for two batteries + shipping vs one of the same battery for $25 bought locally (not including tax). As for shipping, I have no gripes at all, usually I factor in about one month or so of shipping time, but I find that it's been getting faster and faster lately (though it's the first time I've had a package traverse Europe).
