    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.

      Just a replacement battery. No! It was easy to order and get one more of these handy so I don't have to worry about running out of power in the middle of a long day.

        Comments about Canon LP-E8 Rechargeable Lithium-Ion Battery Pack (7.2V, 1120mAh):

        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

              Comments about Canon LP-E8 Rechargeable Lithium-Ion Battery Pack (7.2V, 1120mAh):

              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.

                  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.

                                      It has a great battery life. It can get charged at a good speed too. It works perfectly with my Canon T3i.

                                        Just what was expected, this is a factory replacement battery. Works as expected and no surprises. More expensive than the after-market alternatives but backed by Canon. No idea how well the aftermarket brands compare, they seem to get mixed reviews. I figure that I spent more than the cost of this battery for a good camera sling, so this is probably worth the few extra bucks to me.

                                          I prefer OEM products for the gear I buy. This battery works great in my t3i. I bought 2 more for a battery grip. No problems so far! Holds a charge well and is quick to re-up.

                                            I always buy authentic Canon batteries for my cameras. They are superior in all ways to other replacement batteries, and this one is no different. I am very satisfied with the performance and quality.
