Looking to get more batteries as I find myself running out of room for recording video and pictures, I also find myself finding myself using up my 2 batteries.

I have searched and found these two options, what do you guys think? Any recommendations to replace either setup?
I currently have a 16gb card

Wasabi makes good batteries. You can also look at for Sterlingtek for batteries on Amazon. They have a very good reputation as well. . I use primarily Sandisk cards but I have two Transcends that work just fine.

Those are 1500mah batteries, if you do not need the extra charger take a look at Opteka 2000mah packs

that was just a quick search, I have a couple of their batteries for my T3 and they work great. Might also look a little more there may be packs higher then 2000mah that was just a quick search I did.

How much longer do they last? Oem is like 1200 I believe.

This is coming from my RC racing experience, but a battery with double the mah should last close to twice as long. So your not gaining a whole slew of extra shooting, but I figure if a bigger battery is available why not get it. I shot an entire airshow, camera on all day with like 5k images one 2 2000mah batteries. That was with some 12min exposures as well.

If your doing any video I would be getting the largest packs you could find.

Would getting that much of a higher "mah" do damage?

No .... its just battery storage size, has nothing to do with voltage or any of that other stuff. Its just has more energy storage.
