    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 use this in my 5D which has had a lot of use. The battery in it finally failed to retain a charge for any length of time. I wanted to try a different make at a lower price. Can't complain works just like the OEM battery. Great value. Doesn't break the bank to have backups.

                        Just started using this battery and it seems to hold the charge very well and lasting consistently longer than my well worn Canon batteries.
                        If this is a lasting performance pattern, I will replace my other aging batteries with this model as well.

                                    Works as well as the original at almost half the price.

                                            I am very happy with the charge this new battery holds, although it's still new and time will tell.

                                            Our factory battery finally died, found this replacement for a fantastic price and free delivery.

                                              I don't know is it going to last long or not but so far so good as an additional battery.
