How long should a spare battery, or even a battery in a camera which has
been
turned of and unused for a while, hold it's charge? Can I count on a spare
battery being ready to go when I need it?

+++++++++
I have Li-ion batteries that still have a charge after setting unused in the
camera for 2-3 months. When not used they hold their charge much better
than other rechargeable batteries. Non OEM Li-ion batteries are available
and the prices are all over the scale. The cheapest one are just that cheap
and not worth buying. I have had good luck with non OEM batteries that cost
less than half of the OEM price. Chargers are available on e-bay for almost
all Li-ion batteries often in a kit that allows you to charge using 120/240
or 12 volts for prices as low as $20 or so.
