      Given the choice between OEM and aftermarket off-brand, I opted to get a Canon battery for back-up for use with this camcorder. The batteries I have experienced on my Nikon DX2, and D1 are now OEM. The others just don't seem to hold a charge like OEM.

                    Works perfectly with the Vixia as a second battery. After market replacements ofton do not work as well as the original. I know I made the mistake of trying one.

                      The kit battery is not that good, discharges rapidly when not in use. This battery is great, three times smaller than the kit battery,does not discharge, does the job very well.

                            I use your batteries every weekend for no less than five to eight hours.I have three batteries for my camera recorder and usually only get a max. of five and a half hours. whether or not the cold weather (because I Film outside) shortens the life of the battery is not known yet, because they have not been tested in warm weather. I will have to get back to you on that.

                              Genuine Canon battery is the best way to go. I tried an aftermarket brand extra battery first, and it would not come out of the camera. I had to go to great lengths to remove the aftermarket accessory. But with the genuine Canon battery, there is no issue with that and the life is great.

                                  This is a real Canon battery, not a cheap low quality knock-off. I use it in my Canon Vixia HF M301 camcorder, and it works just like the original battery that came with the camcorder. It recharges just fine with a non-Canon brand charger. The BH price is very competitive, and much less than the price on the Canon website.

                                        Between filming and reviewing the footage, the battery tends to draw down fairly quick so a second battery is a must for any video enthusiast.

                                              I was disappointed with this battery. I was expecting a bigger size and capacity than the standard one that came with the camera. Had I realized that it was the same size I would not have purchased it.

                                                Sure, you can stop what you are filming and pull out the battery for a recharge, but with an extra battery your downtime is very limited. That's why I have a backup...to keep filming.

                                                      I purchase 2nd and 3rd batteries for a 12 day wilderness trip. Over the course of the 12 days I was able to get 14 hours worth of footage, in cool/cold temperatures between the three batteries with some minor reviewing.

                                                      Given the small premium over secondary brands, I would go with the Canon product if I had to make the decision
