    I shoot weddings and other family-oriented events and need hours of battery power. I also move often so I don't want to be bogged down with electric cables. I had misgivings before buying the BP-970 Lithium-Ion Battery Pack because this was not a factory-preferred product. I am thrilled at the length of battery life of the BP-970 Lithium-Ion Battery Pack. It recharges quickly and lasts for hours with my GL2

    Comments about Watson BP-970 Lithium-Ion Battery Pack (7.4V, 7800mAh):

    I had a chance to use it 2 times already, and it lasted over the whole event, meaning more than 5hrs of use.Using in an older model Canon video camera. Great value for the money you pay.

                    For less than half the price of the Cannon battery, this one lasts over twice as long as the one that came with the camera. If you are considering aftermarket, this Pearstone battery is the one to go with. Quality in every department.

                          Great unit for the cost. Long-lasting battery that is easy in the bag and keeps you powered for hours. Only drawback is the lack of battery life estimation, but it isn't a huge problem as the indicator still is accurate in general.

                                  I think i filmed for about 5 hours, and there was still some battery left. I started with buying Sony Products, but Canon Video and Compact Flashes are a perfect match. No more artifacts on my recording. Thank you Canon

                                    I use this type of batteries at least once a week and they are great! Last a lot and they are a little bit cheaper than the original CANON brand.

                                      I order this to have more battery power when I was on shoots. This definitely gets the job done.

                                          I have several of these batteries. Very nice battery for your Canon camera. Long life comes in handy out in the field and I can always trust this battery for it!

                                            Really impressed with the battery life! Used with my XHA1 cameras for some two plus hours and still had a nearly a full charge. Recharge wasn't bad at all.
