      It's a lot better than the battery that came w/ my HF M300 Canon Vixia.It lasted about 1 hr. 20 minutes.The original battery lasted about 30 minutes.It is about 15 minutes better than the extra battery I bought for my old Canon HV 40.Needless to say, if you are going to do any video beyond range of an electric outlet, you will need at least one of these.If I were rich, I would buy 5 more.I wrote the review because B&H offered to put me in a drawing for[$] gift card.But obviously my comments are generic and not meant to over-hype this product. Everyone knows u need extra batteries w/ camcorders. Sort of strange that Canon doesn't just put 2 of these in the box instead of the lame small one they give ya.

      I may have gotten a defective battery, but it did not charge properly. When using the Pearstone AC/DC charger, the charge light would always be green (meaning fully charged), even when the battery was dead. Also, when charging in my camcorder, sometimes it would stop halfway through charging, and the power light would blink rapidly (which means there was a problem with the charging according to the manual). After removing and reinserting the battery, I was able to finish charging.

      I had no problems using this battery; only charging. The record time was long, and the battery performed well, but the charge issues were unacceptable, so I returned the battery and I will likely buy the more expensive genuine Canon brand battery.

      The Canon battery that came with the camcorder has no charging problems in either the Pearstone charger or the camcorder.

                The bigger LCD's in the latest handy cams eat up even more juice than ever before. If you're like me, you don't want to break the creative flow during the shoot because your battery is dying. These high capacity batteries are amazing. Pearstone is also a reliable and affordable alternative to the equivalent Canon battery.

                I haven't used this much yet, so the jury is still out. I do know that according to my camera, this replacement battery is not supposed to be able to be charged while in the camera. Well, I tried it out because I didn't want to spend even more money on a charger...and it worked! It doesn't fit super-snug in my camera, meaning it jiggles around a bit unlike the Canon battery. But considering the Canon battery is also very small and doesn't last long, I knew I would need a backup battery. This one works for that purpose.

                      This is an economical choice for an additional battery. Compared to the cost of the Canon batteries it is a no-brainer. Battery life shows up on screen. It has replaced the stock battery that came with the camera for me, and I am thinking of getting another one.

                        I bought this battery because my HF G10 uses the same batterys as my two older vixias and have used it with the HF G10 and my HF 10. I remember reading reviews that the pearstone battery would not charge with the on camera adapter and you would need the Canon Battery Charger, which I have, to charge it.
                        I even had the battery in a camera and plugged the charger into the camera and it seemed to be charging but i will confirm this next time i need to charge it

                                  The first battery we got didnt talk with the camera, this one does and works just fine. Cheers to B&H for the attention to detail! Thank you for getting us a battery that would work!

                                    So far I am getting about 2 hours out of battery. I use with my Canon Vixia Camera. The Canon battery that came with the Camera just died after about nine months. It had very moderate usage. I am hoping this Pearstone lasts longer.

                                    The camera was used mostly for home movies. This battery pack did not run down on me during the Thanksgiving holiday. I never had to recharge it.

                                        GREAT battery only gave it 4 stars cause I do alot of hockey movies and the battery doesnt do all that well in the cold rink, but out side of that it tripled the shooting time

                                          The first time using the battery I left the camera recording because I wasn't scared of the battery running out on me, or running out of memory ... That's a great feeling, I recommend this to anyone whose considering taking lengthy videos very consistent.

                                              I bought this as a 2nd battery for the canon xa-10 and it works great. The camera recognizes the battery and it holds its charge for about 3 hours give or take, using the lcd screen
