Question battery type

Looking for some advice regarding battery types.

I have a Yaesu HT (VX-6R/E). Is it OK to use aftermarket Li batteries, rather than buying the 'Yaesu branded' battery. I've seen the batteries go for $30 to $105, for the same type of battery. Do you think some brands will last longer than others?

I want to get an extra battery, so I can swap it in the radio when one is discharged and not have to wait 5 hours for it to charge up again.

Thanks for your time,
Jim
