I noticed the 9v that came with my pilot is:
Radio Shack sells:
I found this site:
It looks like a good replacement.
But I am actually looking for one for my hopper.

One thing I don't understand though. I have read old threads that claim you cannot use a standard Alkaline.
Shouldn't the alkaline have like 3 times the capacity?
Also, I found Lithiums for $7.95. 1200 mah, but they are not rechargable.
And Rechargeable Lithium polymers (500mah) for $14.97

Alkalines have much larger capacity, however, in this case, the Spyder markers stock board tends to be very picky about voltage. Many have tried a regular 9v battery, none have reported any success, some have reported damage as a result. That battery in your link comes a lot closer than any others, but seeing as how it's listed as a 9v, and says "actually charges to 9.4v" makes me hesitant to take the chance if it only goes to 9.2v and won't power the marker.
I have tried using 9 volts in my Pilot. They never caused any damage but it wasn't worth it because the amount you spend replacing them you'd be better off buying a 9.6v rechargable. Some have reported the batteries damaging the board but mine just don't last very long.

That one would work, but for $12.99, it's not much savings, if any. Also, there's almost always someone selling them in the sales corner for way cheaper.
