Just a guess -- I think the wide variance in price may have
more to do with shipping routes, how many middlemen marked up
the price en route, etc [not that any seller you'd be dealing
with is necessarily ripping you off; maybe they got ripped off
themselves, and don't know they can get the same thing for
less from another supplier].  They all probably originate at
the same factory.

I've had fairly good luck going for the cheapest batteries I
could find on eBay -- but then, maybe it was only luck.  :-\
