Any good economical batteries for the Canon T5 DSLR?

I recently bought a Canon T5 DSLR for my dad and would like to have 1-2 spare batteries so he can use the camera for a longer time. The camera uses a Canon LP-E10 battery.

According to Amazon.ca that battery is like $80ish which is too expensive for me. I was wondering if anyone knows of any place with good results on the batteries at IDK...$10/each?

I was thinking of buying from www.dealextreme.com as I used to buy LED components for my high power bicycle light DIY builds. Any advise on buying 3rd party batteries? I prefer to use the original battery charger to charge all the batteries.

Thanks in advance for the help.

Non OEM batteries tend to discharge faster, especially after a few months. On DSLRs with bigger batts and higher shot counts than ILMC, it matters less.
Wasabi's may vary depending on camera, but I wouldn't trust the quality of DX or lesser known 3rd party.
