    With two of these in my T2i's battery grip, I am confident that I'll be shooting for a long time. With only one (in the body), I was amazed at the life, even when the camera had sat for a few weeks. As an owner of several Canon products, I have to say that the power consumption characteristics are very good, and I believe that using Canon brand batteries is probably the best way to maximize my cameras' capabilities.

        Use this battery as a backup, and it holds charge as well as runs my camera for a few days of minimal use. It shipped quickly and in perfect condition.

              The capacity of this battery is lacking for the full featured T5i. I bought this as a backup because I expected one battery not to last for a full day's shooting.

                Not much to say. These batteris are reliable and sturdy. I use a total of 3 (2 in my batery grip and one on standby). Not a single complaint.

                  I always go wih the brand name battery and it's never let me down. It has an excellent battery life and seems to consistently charge to the same level as when I bought it.

                        This is the stock OEM battery.
                        A bit more expensive but you get what you pay for... This thing is perfect for a hot swap out, or doubling up with a camera body grip to double up your shoot time/ability

                              This battery gets charged prior to a shoot, on a full charge, one battery will last me for more than 8 hours of shooting. I generally take 2 fully charged batteries & carry a couple of spares in case of necessity, but usually one battery is more than sufficient in shooting a full wedding day event.

                                  I believe it to be better than the no name batteries. They cost more than they should but if quality is what you want then this is the one to get. IMO

                                    I bought this extra battery basically for my battery grip on my T4i. So I have two batteries and I used it to shoot timelapse and I was able to capture over 2100 photos with the screen turned off and there is still extra power to have more photos. I'm really satisfied with this product.

                                      I have used both after market and Canon batteries. The Canon batteries always seem to last longer and recharge fast.

                                        This battery packs a punch! I worked a concert from 12p to 8p. Captured about 40 GB of data and the battery was still had 1/4 of power left in it.

                                          I have bought generic batteries in the past and I can really tell the difference in longevity between those and the real Canon batteries.

                                            I use this battery on rotation with my original camera battery when shooting photos and videos; since batteries should be used on a regular basis to hold a charge.

                                            Not too much to say about this besides I recommend marking your batteries so you can properly rotate them between uses.

                                              Get an acceptable amount of recording time for video from this battery, which is our primary use of the Canon DSL T3i.
