Batter Replacement for a camera

I have an old Pentax W10 digital camera that works great for a camera that is over 5 years old and takes about 100 pics a day for the last 5 years. The battery doesn't hold the charge like it use too and I looked up on eBay and found one but not all the numbers match up 100%
I found this one http://cgi.ebay.com/Battery-D-Li8-Pe...item5ad35af900
but the battery I have says 3.7V 710mAh and the one on eBay says 3.7V 1200mAh, will that be bad for my camera?

No, it simply means the eBay battery has a higher capacity...which means more minutes before it runs dead. (assuming the chinese aren't bending the numbers too much)

Edit to Add: I've bought some chinese batteries for my Nikon. Some were teh suck and didn't last long, and some were actually better than the factory Nikon. It's really hit or miss.

ok thanks!! I'll look for others also. Even if the battery isn't perfect, I can have 1 on the charger while using the other one.

I would be very wary of any of those "stores" in Brooklyn, NY. Batteries Plus has them.

I'm not crazy, my mother had me tested.
