    Battery works well when new but fails badly later

    I picked up one of these batteries two years ago. My initial thoughts on this battery were really great but long-term performance is much to be desired. Canon OEM Batteries are so expensive compared to many third party batteries like DigiPower, but in my experience no other battery can compare to the OEM Canon batteries that come with the device. I picked up a 5D in 2007 and the battery that came with my camera has lasted longer than this battery even though my OEM battery is at least 3 years older. It's really amazing that the OEM can hold a charge so long compared to the DigiPower and other third party manufacturers. I have purchased batteries on eBay that claim to have a higher mAh rating and supposedly last longer, but after an initial usage of a month or so, they only hold a charge for couple minutes. This DigiPower was much better overall compared to the eBay replacement batteries, but cannot compare to the Canon OEM batteries which they are supposedly replacing. After two years of use with my DigiPower battery, it doesn't even hold a charge anymore. I can take it off the charger, throw it in the camera and I get the flashing battery light. It's really annoying that a battery this expensive can't even last a couple years of normal use. You cannot beat the longevity of the OEM versions in my opinion. I would save up a little more and just get the OEM ones. It will save you headaches in the future.

    I bought this battery for my Canon Digital Rebel. I found out my Canon charger will not charge the battery. I have not yet bought the DigiPower charger so I do not know how well this battery will work for my camera. The battery did come charged and it worked great until it went dead. The battery state it is compatible with my camera but it should have said you can not use the charger that came with my camera and I need the charger that goes with the battery.

    After about six years of use, the battery in my wife's Canon camera finally was dying. We purchased this battery as a replacement and it seems to be doing the job just fine. I was shocked at the price (around $75 I think) but the salesman told us the cheap batteries ($8.00ea.) would not last but only a few charges. This one should last until we buy a new camera.

    I've had my new camera for about 3 or 4 months. There's been no falloff on the charge yet. Its been flashing low battery for a couple of weeks now and I still haven't had to swap out.

    Works great with my camcorder. Needed last minute for a wedding or I wouldn't have paid this much. Can be order elsewhere for almost a third of the price.
