    It's pricey but real OEM is worth it.

    I had original Canon LP-E6 batteries from 2010, but like any lithium battery, these will eventually lose it's charge. I did need to replace my Canon batteries, but I tried to go the cheap route about a year ago picking up a 3rd party battery at a far lower price. Basically you get what you pay for. It worked well for a month, but then showed dramatic loss in battery life after just 10-20 shots - showing full charge down to 40-45%. Yes the Canon brand batteries are more expensive, but it is worth it. I charged these and so far I've taken 100 times more photos with these batteries in 10 days then I could in just a few hours with the cheap brand.

    It's a battery

    I purchased this battery in order to have an extra power source for my Canon 80D. It's always a good idea to have an extra battery ready to go during long shoots. Canon says that one should use only Canon approved batteries, but their batteries are a whole lot over-priced, in my opinion. (That's the reason for the somewhat lower score.) There are other batteries that appear to work just as well and they generally cost about half of what Canon batteries go for. However, should problems with the camera ever come about, use of an off--brand could affect your warranty, so using the recommended battery is probably a good safety net. As far as how it works... doesn't do much but power the camera functions and it seems to hold its charge for quite a while. I can usually get more than 800 shots per charge.

    Extra Life! More Time to Shoot!

    I believe having an extra battery is essetential for any digital handheld device out there because you'll never know when you need more juice and there's no outlet around or time to wait around charging. I read many reviews and asked many professionals for their opinions before deciding to purchase the original name branded battery over a third party off branded battery. My conclusion was basically that the name branded battery would last much longer then any off branded one would thus saving a lot of time from switching and room from carrying multiple batteries a long with you. I also hear that this LP-E6N last a little longer then it's predecessor, the LP-E6. I know price is probably a huge factor in purchasing this one over an off branded one but I have only one thing to say, I LOVE Best Buy's price match gauruntee!

    Well Spent Money

    Bought to have an extra insurance as another backup battery. Choice to use it in camera right from the start while on safari. This battery lasted for almost 2 weeks shooting thousands of RAW photos. I never even had to swap it out. The technology in canon batteries must have changed as his battery far exceeds life of other canon batteries. Still bring backups, but do yourself a favor and buy this one. It certainly minimizes the risk of the lost photo due to dead battery and subsequent swap while in the field.

    A must have for shooting

    I would highly recommend getting a canon brand second battery for your shoots. I have used many off brands for backups when shooting videos, and the battery life and battery degradation is significantly different. After a year thr canon has simular charge and life. Off brands, two are completely dead, two take much longer to charge and charge lasts half as long. Dont skimp out and leave yourself in a bad position when you are mid shoot.

    Canon OEM Battery for 5DM4

    Works great. Charges quickly, holds charge even when loaded in camera, and I can view all battery information via information screen on 5DM4. Presently I find that the 5DM4 draws more battery power in normal use (compared to my 7D). I am learning how to use all the camera features and it takes me a while to make setting changes and compose the image. I am sure I will use less power over time. Use Canon camera grip with two Canon batteries and have two Best Buy batteries for backup. Always suggest having a backup power source. Good product I highly recommend.

    The only battery worth having

    If you find yourself needing a battery for your Canon camera that uses the LP-E6/LP-E6N battery, this is your best bet. Sure, you can pay less for something else, but do you want to risk a lower quality battery cutting out on you when you need your camera up and running for a shot? Probably not. Ultimately, it's a battery - and a Canon battery is your best bet for reliable performance with your expensive Canon DSLR - even if this battery is expensive too.

    The only battery used for Canon 5D Mark IV

    I bought this battery for a spare. Right now, there are no third party batteries available for the Canon LP-E6N which is made only for the the Canon 5D Mark IV. The Canon 5DM4 will probably last about a half day with regular use, given you don't have Wifi or GPS on at all times. So a spare battery was a must for me. I've read some reviews which say the LP-E6 batteries will work on a 5DM4, but it will lose some performance. The battery is of Canon brand quality batteries which also means its 69.99 plus tax [ouch]. But there are't many options available yet.

    The only battery I'll ever use

    If you have a Canon camera, you NEED this battery. I've tried using the knock off generic brands, and they just simply dont hold up against the name brand. You've probably invested a ton of money into your media gear. Don't short change yourself in the long run just to save a few bucks on a battery. Use quality equipment to power your gear, and it will last much longer for you. Is it pricey? YES. Canon brand batteries are super overpriced, but they can do that because there's no real comparison.

    OEM battery

    The Canon batteries are so much better than any of the after market that I have tried, so I purchased extra LP-6EN batteries for my Canon 5D IV. I currently rotate 6 of these. When I do a 1000 +/- shoot, I then carry three batteries with me, but only wind up using one full one - changing when it gets down below 30% - and part of the second one. The third one winds up as a safety net. All my shots are in raw.

    I’ve tried the fake non brand batteries in my canon camera and the canon ones seem to last longer, I have noticed that the older versions (older batches) don’t work with my new charger only my old previous one from canon 5d mark 2. I have the canon 5d mark 4 now as well. I have a few of these now because you never want to run out at a wedding or sometimes it’s nice to have an extra one on hand in case you forget to recharge one

    Good Battery for the price

    Bought new Canon camera body and battery grip. There was a special with camera purchase and it came with one battery (same as purchased) and a few weeks later got another one when it went in sale at $29.99 (regular price $39.99). Good battery with good power, but has less charge than Canon OEM. About half the price of Canon. Now have two batteries of same rating to go into battery grip. Camera can read and show remaining battery power on screens. Excellent.

    I purchased two of these batteries because my husband plays music and wanted to record some of the songs the band played and not just bits and pieces of them. I also take lots of pictures. They play 4 hour gigs and I still had life left on the second battery at the end of the gig. Next time I will record more music and take more pictures!

    I have a Canon 5D mark III and I bought a spare generic brand battery (for back up) couple of years ago. Turns out, the battery only worked for a year and now won't charge anymore. So I decided to spend a little bit more and buy the original Canon battery for my camera. As you can assumed, it works perfectly and last way much longer. Always buy original brand for your equipment.

    Bought this as an extra battery for my Canon 80D - fortunately I had it fully charged when my first battery ran low on Safari - about 10 minutes later got up close and personal with a cheetah - got some great pictures and videos. Worked perfectly - no problems for the whole 11 day trip - definitely glad I had it!

    Only use original batteries for the best results!

    When needing power when you want it, getting original factory batteries are the way to go. That might not be the case for all items requiring juice, but when you use a high-end camera; it's a no brainer. I've dealt with aftermarket batteries not holding the charge, or seeing it's charge levels fluctuate too easily. When shooting an event, that's the last thing you want to worry about.

    I researched a number of aftermarket batteries and with no real guarantees that the batteries would perform like OEM I decided that after purchasing a high end camera, why would I go cheap on the item that makes it work? Buy OEM and have peace of mind that when you press the button it clicks.

    Two days before traveling overseas I was going to charge my Canon - LP-E6N Lithium-Ion Battery for my 70D and I couldn't find it in my camera case. Called several camera shops and was told it had to be ordered and expected to ship in 3-5 days. Went to Best Buys and they had the original ( not a replacement) on the shelf. They saved my trip. They are the BEST BUY.

    Needed Extra Battery for New Canon DSLR

    I purchased an additional Canon brand battery when I purchased my second Canon DSLR from BB. Luckily for me, BB had a stock of the original manufacturer batteries so I snagged one among other items I needed to gear-up with the new camera. No issues with the additional battery, you need one unless you want to wait while your primary battery charges to take more pictures.
