Charges and works
By Jeff Switzer
The battery charged and works well. Only time (lots) will tell how well it lasts. The existing Canon battery in the camera still works, I just wanted to have an extra battery so that a fully charged battery was always available.
I would often buy a less expensive unit for a second battery for a piece of electronics, but I read an excellent review here that said for the price of the camera and the associated equipment, it's silly to save $10 or $20. I agree with that thought fully in this case. The expensive camera doesn't work if the battery fails or runs out of charge. It's not like a laptop computer who's power brick can easily be plugged into a wall outlet.

Do Not Substitute. Use these, the real thing:
This is where you do NOT want to skimp and use cheap third party batteries.
Usually third party stuff is OK, for a macro light or remote timer, but for the actual battery, use the real thing.
The cameras now seem to be able to sense non Canon batteries and give a warning when you have a non-Canon battery.
These are not cheap, but they are very good and hold a charge for a very long time. SO long that I usually do not need to use a battery grip even when the battery is powering a big telephoto lens servo system.

Excellent battery life ...
By Paul B.
Being Canon I expected a lot ... it's perfect and lasts an age even when I use flash a lot. I almost don't need it as the original (identical) lasts a long time but it's great to have an insurance backup for busy days or times when it's not convenient to recharge overnight.
