    These work just as well as canon's brand batteries. They charge quickly and hold their charges great. I use two with my BG-E2N BATTERY GRIP and never have to worry about running out of juice. worth the price and work just as well as some my other more expensive batteries. should have gone with them in the first place.

    Hi, I bought two of these batteries after seeing the high rating in reviews they got. The purchase was for a long trip of shooting to hold over the other two batteries I had (Canon, plus one off-brand, but more expensive than these). The short story is that it's been one month and they have been charged maybe 5 times total, but they charge in 10 minutes and show <1/4 the charge of the other two good batteries when loaded in the camera. Yes, something is wrong with this picture and these batteries are not good.I actually feel ripped off, that I've been sold a bad product by B&H!!! It's almost heart-breaking as I buy all of my photography products from them. However, it's 30 days and past the return possibilities. Luckily it's only a loss of 2x[$] so I'm not out that much money. However, I cannot recommend others to buy this product.Jamie

                                      I am very pleased to have purchased these for my Canon 5D. No problems with using or charging them.

                                        Lasted a bit longer than the manufacturer and Sony suggested.

                                          This product will get a lot of use as I try to get out and take advantage of what images I can record at different times of the year.

                                            *I use this battery with Canon 5D or 50D bodies.
                                            *Cost almost half the price of the Canon battery and works exactly the same with similar charge. There is no need to pay the extra for the Canon brand name when the Watson option is available. Excellent product.
                                            *No complaints.

                                                I was worried about getting a non Cannon replacement battery but there was no need to worry. The battery fit and worked perfectly.
