Neil - Mine are doing fine.  In fact, they are outlasting the Canon 
5D batteries on this trip.  Something has happened with the Canon 
charger and the batteries last about 15 minutes before 
expiring.  Leica ones - even the 8 cheap Asian ones I have - are 
holding a charge for a full day or more.  I did upgrade to 1.201, too.
